- Scozzafava Calls for Owens [✜]
Speaking of crossing party lines, you can't beat the criss-crosses in upstate's 23rd Congressional special election. Dede Scozzafava (R) has dropped out of the race and is now supporting Bill Owens (D) over Doug Hoffman (very, very R). This all came about because the brownshirts in the Republican party thought that Scozzafava wasn't Republican enough, even though she had the support of the local and national Republican party. This whole thing started when Barack Obama (D-US) appointed former congressman John McHugh (R-NY) to the Secretary of the Army.
