What a shock. The Daily Kos GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava is supporting the democrat.
Former GOP far left candidate Dede Scozzafava urged her supporters yesterday to vote for democrat Bill Owens.
The Watertown Daily Times reported:
In her statement Saturday morning, the assemblywoman explained the reasons behind her decision: “It is increasingly clear that pressure is mounting on many of my supporters to shift their support. Consequently, I hereby release those individuals who have endorsed and supported my campaign to transfer their support as they see fit to do so.”

During the day Saturday, she began to quietly and thoughtfully encourage her supporters to vote for Democrat William L. Owens.
Ms. Scozzafava finished a distant third in the latest Siena Research Institute poll with 20 percent support of likely voters. Her opponents, Mr. Owens and Conservative Douglas L. Hoffman, garnered 36 percent and 35 percent respectively.
UPDATE: Dede’s not alone.
Her husband endorsed the democrat last night, too.
