It's One-on-One in CD-23

Republican Dede Scozzafava dropped out of the special congressional race in New York's 23rd Congressional District, leaving a head-to-head contest between Conservative Doug Hoffman and Democrat Bill Owens. With Hoffman and Owens in a statistical dead heat in the most recent polls, this development bodes very favorably for Hoffman.

Realizing the odds against him, Owens is now hitting hard against Hoffman. The only sensible strategy for him now.

It means the Republican candidate did the only thing she could do to pull off a Republican victory in this race: drop out.

Here's Dede doing the right thing:

Whiskey - Tango - Foxtrot !
This lady just endorsed the Democrat Owens? You gotta be kidding me.
The GOP needs to strip her of any committees that she is currently on and find a strong Rep - Con to run in a primary against her.
Newt Gingrich need to fly to Upstate New York On Monday and hit the trail with Hoffman for the last 24 hours before the election.

Don't get it. Is Dede that out of touch?

If she wanted to help Owens, she should have stayed in the race, not dropped out.

Typical clueless Albany Republican.
