Dierdre Scozzafava (R) Suspends Her Campaign

This move could have major ramifications across the country. It may only be a small election in NY, but a message is being sent to the Republicans that the "R" next to a candidates name is not enough. Run conservative candidates or face serious third party candidate competition.

"Republican state Assemblywoman Dierdre Scozzafava has suspended her campaign for upstate New York’s 23rd Congressional seat, leaving Democratic nominee Bill Owens and Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman in the race that will conclude Tuesday, Fox News has confirmed.

The move comes on the heels of a new poll that showed Scozzafava had fallen behind her two competitors in a race too close.

The Siena College poll has Owens picking up 36 percent of the vote, while Hoffman has 35 percent. Scozzafava has 20 percent, with nine percent of voters undecided.
