    Republican Scozzafava Endorses Democrat After Exiting N.Y. Congressional Race



    <Republican Dede Scozzafava endorsed her former Democratic opponent Sunday in the race for an upstate New York congressional seat, shaking up the contest for the second day in a row after exiting the race Saturday.

    Scozzafava dropped out after Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman experienced a late-in-the-game surge. The move was expected to consolidate GOP voters behind Hoffman on Tuesday.

    But on Sunday, Scoz>

    sure, dede's deadly

    she polls 20%, hoffman leads by 19 in a 3-way

    machiavelli can do the math

    meanwhile the conservative overcomes the dem, the prez AND the gop elite

    and NJ and VA swing 20 points red since jan 20

    good thinking

    This should settle any questions remaining as to whether Scozzafava was ever a Republican.
    I would think that this move will in fact insure a Democrat loss just beacuse it should upset no end people who were going to vote for Scozzafava just because Republican was attached to her candidacy.

    Can't wait to see what happens next come Tuesday.
    Actually...you're wrong. What is shows is that the Beck/Limbaugh Republican party has no room for moderates. The Republican party is moving further and further to the hard right and leaving independents and moderates behind.
    Thank You.

    Must suck when all you have is to hang your hat on a race several thousand miles away doesn’t it?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    No, I am not kidding. She is right of average for her NY Republican caucus, and dead center, nationally.


    Actually, though, Boris and Nolan find Scozzafava to be pretty much in the exact center on a national scale:

    Her ideological "common space" score is 0.02. These scores, similar but far superior to interest group ratings, put state legislators around the country on the same scale with each other, as well as with members of Congress.


    Being in the center nationally puts Scozzafava to the right in New York:

    Scozzafava's score puts her in the 58th percentile of her party, which makes her slightly more conservative than the average Republican legislator in Albany, so she's a conservative in her [state] party.

    What is your political affiliation? My state has non-partisan registration, so I am not registered as anything. I vote for Democratic candidates the majority of the time (though by no means always). This year, I have been a supporter of Barack Obama. The other contributor to this website, Sean Quinn, has also been a supporter of Barack Obama.

    Are your results biased toward your preferred candidates? I hope not, but that is for you to decide. I have tried to disclose as much about my methodology as possible.

    Based on Scozzafava's positions, it suggests something most of us have known for quite some time.

    The GOP defines Conservative as "SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE with economic conservative."

    Not surprising.

    Abortion & Gay Rights trumps anti-tax, smaller government, strong defense, pro-gun and pro business hands down.

    I agree but Scozzafava was also in favor for the bailouts which had to be the final straw. Not even my congressman Maurice Hinchey (D-NY 22) was dumb enough to do that.
