NY-23: What Does Every Good Republican Do When they Bow Out of Race … Scozzafava Endorses Democrat Owens
Brutus in Republicans clothing …
Dede Scazzafava, former GOP candidate for the NY-23 special election has officially thrown her support to who else … the Democrat candidate Bill Owens. What a shock, Scazzafava who was endorsed and took campaign funds from the RNC throws in with the Democrat after talking to Chucky Schumer. One might ask why she was talking with Chucky in the first place. The Watertown Daily News reported the following:
Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., was among those who urged Dierdre K. Scozzafava to endorse Democratic congressional candidate William L. Owens, the senator’s spokesman said Saturday.
The spokesman, Maxwell Young, said the senator called a number of north country political leaders after Ms. Scozzafava suspended her campaign and had more than one conversation with the Republican candidate ahead of her announcement. He said the senator also called other Democratic leaders about the situation, including White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
Mr. Owens said he was “honored” by the endorsement.
“Over the course of her career, Dede has always committed to serving the people of Upstate New York before serving a partisan agenda,” he said in a statement. “Now more than ever we need bipartisan solutions to help bring jobs to Upstate New York to get our economy back on track and move our country forward. Those are the kinds of priorities I will fight for in Congress because that’s the kind of leadership Upstate New York needs right now.”
As Dump Dede stated, is anyone really shocked?
Is it safe to say now that all Conservatives have now been vindicated as to what Dede Scozzafava was all about? Is it safe to say that it was only a matter of time before Scozzafava did this to the Republican party if she was ever elected. Hey Newt, I’d rather be divisive than have liberal Republican egg on my face. Those in the camp of the Conservative candidate Douglas L. Hoffman called Ms. Scozzafava a turncoat.
“This afternoon Dede Scozzafava betrayed the GOP,“ Senior Communications Advisor Rob Ryan said in a statement. “She endorsed a Pelosi Democrat who will spend more, tax more, and push the liberal agenda that is dragging down this nation.”
Exit Question from Weasel Zippers, How much did her endorsement cost Obama, Soros, Media Matters, Organizing for America, DNC, and last but not least, the Taxpayers?
Let this be a lesson to the RNC the next time they decide to nominate a liberal Democrat and pass them off as a Republican. This is not a matter of the Republicans tent not being large enough, the likes of Scozzafava have a place where people believe in her policies … its called the Democrat party.
The NRCC and RNC Just Spent $1 Million on Dede Scozzafava … This is their Reward.
