GOP nominee endorses Democrat after stepping aside under pressure from right By Tony Romm - 11/01/09 03:28 PM ET The Republican in a New York House race that has become a symbol of the divisions within the GOP endorsed her former Democratic rival Sunday, a sharp snub to the third-party conservative who forced her out of the race.
Dede Scozzafava, who'd been chosen by local Republican leaders to try to hold the seat for the GOP, instead threw her support behind Democrat Bill Owens -- only a day after she unexpectedly backed out of the tough, three-way special election.

Dede will announce a switch to the Dems soon I’m sure...good riddance to bad rubbish.
and this shows the obama plan...get the republican out and replace him with either a dem or a republican who would do his bidding....screw this meglomainiac....go Hoffman
Get rid of acorn vote fixers
photo id to vote.
And will someone please remind me again WHY we are supposed to welcome these back-stabbing traitors into our party???
What this proves beyond a shadow of a doubt is that conservative Republicans were right about this all along.
This should also permanently destroy Newt’s reputation as a conservative.
That did not take long for her to show her real stripes. This is after she took all the Republican money. I had given her some credibility after she dropped out of the race but after his maneuver she has sank to the bottom of the gutter like the rest of the dimoKKKRATS. She has been smoked out as to her real identity.
Ol’Newt and Steele really know how to pick’em!

Huh... You almost wonder if the rat WANTED her endorsement.
Anyway, Hoffman is sure to get a boost from this.
This makes her look like a jerk and Gingrich like a fool.
After he endorsed her, she does not have the courtesy to keep her mouth shut.
As for Newt, it rubs it in that he was a fool for not seeing just how far left she really is.
A really good case of rubbing his nose in it.
At this stage, his credibility is no better than hers.
The one-party system in action.
way to prove the point conservatives have been making....
It shouldn’t surprise anyone,,,
The GOP is not in the business of opposing the Democrats. The GOP is in the business of opposing Conservatives.
Maybe the party "leaders" want their "big tent" to include back-stabbing traitors?
We conservatives tried to tell Steele and the party leadership that Scozzafava was a fake, but they didn’t LISTEN! See?
She’s probably a Democrat mole. I suspect there are a lot of them in the Republican Party.
Exactly. Good riddance. She would have switched in office anyway, like Arlen Sphincter.
