Did you hear?

Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava has quit the race.

Does anyone think Sarah Palin's endorsement of Hoffman helped him lead Scozzafava?

  • I am glad she backed out. I don't think Palin's support alone helped IMO. A lot of Libs do forget a ton of Repubs like Palin and follow in toe with her, so her endorsement could have had a big impact.

  • How could that be? The polls say that no one likes her.

  • Yea, I don't think Palin did much, alone. I think it was the others who followed Palin to added to the cause for Hoffman. But I found this Bloomberg article interesting the way the put slightly more emphasis on Palin's endorsement than the other articles I have read... Just curious to see what others thought.....

    I think that since this race is indicative of what is gong to happen in 2010, you SHOULD care, as it WILL be coming to a district that you DO live in! LOL

    Actually, no, forget that I said that, you just sit back and ignore the mid-term elections--I have a feeling we don't want your vote anyway! :o)

  • Exactly Lorikeet.... But I think some Obama supporters have that simple minded attitude of if it isn't a big election and it doesn't directly impact them? They simply don't care. Which is why some Obama campaigners are worrying about mid term voter turn out.

  • I commend her. She understood that staying in the race would split a vote. Ross Peroe stayed on the ballot and Clinton was voted in. I believe he did that so Clinton would be elected. Good for her to be gracious and bow out when she knew she had no chance to win.
