RINO Season Officially Opens– SCOZZAFAVA SUSPENDS CAMPAIGN! (Video)
Republican state Assemblywoman Dierdre Scozzafava has suspended her campaign for upstate New York’s 23rd Congressional seat, leaving Democratic nominee Bill Owens and Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman in the race that will conclude Tuesday, Fox News has confirmed.
The move comes on the heels of a new poll that showed Scozzafava had fallen behind her two competitors in a race too close.
The Siena College poll has Owens picking up 36 percent of the vote, while Hoffman has 35 percent. Scozzafava has 20 percent, with nine percent of voters undecided.
It’s a turnaround from the first Siena poll on the race in September, which had Scozzafava leading, followed by Owens and Hoffman.
The special election is Tuesday.
RINO Season opens.
We bagged ours.
UPDATE: Here’s Scozzafava making the announcement–
Good for Dede.
Dump Dede has more.
Rep. Michelle Bachmann released a statement on Dede’s resignation.
