The RINO Has Given Up

The grassroots in New York has spoken.
Now will the NRCC and the Minority Whip endorse the candidate of choice? Will they acknowledge that consevative values and principles are more important than party affiliation?
I'm not holding my breath.

From Drudge:

BREAKING: Scozzafava suspends NY 23 campaign
Republican Dede Scozzafava has suspended her bid in next Tuesday’s NY 23 special election, a huge development that dramatically shakes up the race. She did not endorse either of her two opponents -- Conservative party candidate Doug Hoffman or Democrat Bill Owens. The decision to suspend her campaign is a boost for Hoffman, who already had the support of 50 percent of GOP voters, according to a newly-released Siena poll, and is now well-positioned to win over the 25 percent of Republicans who had been sticking with Scozzafava.
Scozzafava has “probably made her last campaign appearance between now and Election Day,” spokesman Matt Burns told POLITICO.
“She’s releasing her support to the two other candidates." "I had a discussion with her last night, and we made the decision after I spoke with her.
We talked about it, what this came down to was spending. It came down to the ability to defend herself from the get-go. And that’s the reality. She was unable to define herself where the people didn’t know her." POLITICO has the full story on Scozzafava's surprise decision here.
