    Default Scozzafava

    Anybody from back there got the scoop on this one - appears to be a liberal D running in R's shoes.

    BTW, Jeff, a Rockefeller R is only a verbal declaration away from being a left of center D. When you state that an R served please be considerate enough note the difference. Christie Whitman, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins come to mind as perfect examples.

    I have not been following it very well. But, it appears the the lefties running the republican party wanted her. I guess it was an attempt to homogenize the two parties into what the political class wanted to see. Newt has really been showing his new centrist stance in recent times. Good to see the grass roots, at least in NY23, won the day. Now I just hope they win the election.

    The Republicans are way too liberal.

    Scozzafava is an"Obama" Republican, the party needs her like a hole in the head. I hope the Conservative party candidate wins, he is a Reagan Republican.

    The 23rd is a solidly Republican district so it would be a stunning upset for a Democrat to win. However, the situation there reflects a battle within Republican ranks that could easily undermine hopes for 2010. In any polls currently, the results suggest that the Republican party is poised to win a substantial number of seats in the mid-term elections if they run "generic" Republicans. However, given the battle between moderates and conservatives for control of the party, it is possible that moderates will be pushed out as it seems many here would prefer. If that happens, it could easily reduce those hoped for victories.

    That sums up the republican parties woes going back to Newt's Contract with America. That was like the 'extinction burst' of the modern republican party. And I always thought the democrats were the party of self-destruction....

    The CWA became a moot point when government was shut down & the R's chose to pay the government employees for not working when an agreement was reached.
