Now that’s a sore loser:
Republican Dede Scozzafava, who unexpectedly backed out of a tough, three-way House race on Saturday, announced this afternoon that she was endorsing Democrat Bill Owens for the job.
Her decision not to back Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in the contest to fill former Rep. John McHugh’s open seat is likely to enrage party leaders, who rallied around Hoffman almost immediately after Scozzafava announced she would suspend her campaign.
If the GOP has a future, it’s with genuine conservative/libertarian types like Hoffman — not with DIABLOs like Scozzafava. And judging by the polls, the folks in NY23 may already know that.
