Is Scozzafava Supporting Owens?

Not officially (yet) but maybe behind the scenes.

The Watertown Daily Times, which had endorsed switched their endorsement to the Democrat today and included this tidbit.

During the day Saturday, she began to quietly and thoughtfully encourage her supporters to vote for Democrat William L. Owens.

I can't find any statement from her to that but it might be a behind the scenes deal as the paper says.

Scozzafava's husband, labor activist Ron McDougall, did come out for Owens.

"This has been a difficult day for my family. But the needs and concerns of the men and women of the 23rd Congressional District remain paramount," McDougall said. "As such, I wholeheartedly and without reservation endorse the candidacy of Bill Owens."

“As a life-long labor activist, I know that Bill Owens understands the issues important to working people. On the other hand, Doug Hoffman has little regard for the interests of workers."

"Hoffman’s opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act, coupled with his support for the failed policies of the Bush Administration make him a poor choice to serve the citizens of the 23rd Congressional District.”

Hopefully the Republican county chairs, who stuck the district with Scozzafava will publicly come out for Hoffman.

There's no doubt some of Dede's liberal supporters and personal friends will go to Owens but the rank and file Republican voters need to know it's okay to vote Hoffman.
