Here’s an update on this post. Dede dropped out and now supports the democrat. Surprise, surprise. She seems to be a liberal in every sense of the word, so I am not surprised at all.
SCOZZAFAVA BACKS OWENS, STUNS GOP
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.
