The momentum behind Republican and Conservative Party member Doug Hoffman has forced Dede Scozzafava to drop out of the NY-23 race. This is good news for the conservative movement, and great news for Scott Brown. I am a firm believer that if we as conservatives pull off a trifecta of VA-Gov, NJ-Gov and NY-23 it shows momentum. Then on November 4, 2009 the only game in town is the Brown Candidacy for MA-Sen.
Dede Scozzafava (R) announced “that she is suspending her campaign for the 23rd Congressional District and releasing all her supporters,” the Watertown Daily Times reports.
“The state Assemblywoman has not thrown her support to either Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate, or Bill Owens, the Democratic candidate.”
A new Siena poll this morning found the race too close to call between Owens at 36% and Hoffman at 35% with Scozzafava falling way back to 20%.
