In New York’s 23rd Congressional District, things just heated up. The endorsed GOP candidate, DeeDee Scozzafava, withdrew from the race over the weekend. Scozzafava faced criticism from the conservative wing of the GOP for being more leftist than the Democrat candidate, Bill Owens.
A strong push for choice by the Conservative Party candidate, Doug Hoffman, had Hoffman running neck-and-neck with Owens while Scozzafava was still in the race, but no one knows who will benefit more from her withdrawal.
But even the best weight loss pills can’t improve on this result; New York’s 23rd District just went from having no choice – two leftist candidates – to having a real choice. No matter who wins, that’s better.
