NY 23rd Congressional District: Scozzafava Drops Out

Fighting plunging support, Republican Dierdre Scozzafava abruptly suspended her campaign Saturday in the 23rd Congressional District special election that has exposed a rift among national factions of the party...Campaign spokesman Matt Burns said Scozzafava thinks stepping aside is for the best of the party. He said Scozzafava is essentially withdrawing from the race, although her name will remain on Tuesday's ballot....Republican in NY House Race Suspends Campaign, Valerie Bauman, Google hosted news, 10/31/2009

It's too late for Scozzafava to take her name off the ballot, but her announcement will encourage a lot of fence sitters to vote for their candidate instead of settling for that of the national party.

Kudos to all those who rushed to the aide of Paul Hoffman.
