SCOZZAFAVA SUSPENDS CAMPAIGN!

From the watertowndailytimes.com:
Dede Scozzafava, the Republican and Independence parties candidate, announced Saturday that she is suspending her campaign for the 23rd Congressional District and releasing all her supporters.

The state Assemblywoman has not thrown her support to either Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate, or Bill Owens, the Democratic candidate.

[...]

Ms. Scozzafava told the Watertown Daily Times that Siena Research Institute poll numbers show her too far behind to catch up - and she lacks enough money to spend on advertising in the last three days to make a difference. Mr. Owens has support from 36 percent of likely voters in the poll, with Mr. Hoffman garnering 35 percent support. Ms. Scozzafava has support from 20 percent of those polled.
You will find the entire story here.

Hopefully, this will pave the way for Hoffman to take it all next Tuesday, even if
Scozzafava endorses Owens, the Democrat, but I think it will be a close race regardless.

With any luck, this is the beginning of the end for RINO control of the Republican Party.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

UPDATE: Scozzafava has reportedly endorsed Hoffman.

UPDATE III:
Scozzafava endorses Owens.
