..."I am supporting Bill Owens for Congress and urge you to do the same," she said. "In Bill Owens, I see a sense of duty and integrity that will guide him beyond political partisanship. He will be an independent voice devoted to doing what is right for New York. Bill understands this district and its people, and when he represents us in Congress he will put our interests first."...

I can understand her endorsing another liberal, but why did she have to endorse him a dozen times in the last two hours?

Perhaps this will send yet another message to the GOP leadership. Never, never, never, never, ever trust a RINO.

Another RINO sticks it to the Republican establishment. They never learn and they can never hold the lead. Time to clean house.

Is it too late to go after her for abusing the campaign finance laws? Or is she still fair game?

A very dumb move on her part. She can kiss her future with the GOP goodbye.

I suspect she’ll switch parties. Good riddance.

Scozzafava was fully endorsed by the RINO Chairman of the RNC, Michael Steele, and by his fellow RINO Newt Gingrich as well.

This should be brought up every time the Republican Establishment tells conservatives that they ‘have to’ vote for a social liberal with a Republican label.

Can't hurt...right about the time people are applauding Dede's classy move to step aside she does this and proves them wrong. I am done with supporting the GOP. I support people who love the Founding Principles. Most Politicians suck...Republicans less, but we need to throw all the bums out.

Somebody please send Dede an application for the democrat or the liberal party, or both. Thanks for the republican party giving the voters of New York 23 a choice — either Tweedledede or Tweedledumb.

“Never Trust a RINO”

Make a great bumper sticker.

She’s not a RINO, anyone paying the least bit of attention knows shes a radical-liberal-democrat.

You gotta think any RINO voters that were leaning to DeDe will vote Owens regardless. So no loss from that perspective.

Only the party pubs that will follow DeDe's endorsement will hurt Hoffman.

I hope Doug has a large enough lead to absorb any hit from her endorsement.
