The bizarre little special election in NY-23 has really gone sideways. With 87% of the polls reporting, results are 49% for Owens (the Dem) and 45% for Hoffman, the teabagger. From TPM:(Scozzafava, whose name still appeared on the ballot, got 6%.) So it looks like a safe GOP seat might go to the Democrats as a result of teabagger interference.
Whoops, hang on: Hoffman just conceded.
Wow: a seat that’s been held by the GOP practically since the invention of the wheel has gone blue. Take a bow, teabaggers!
UPDATE (Wednesday): Teabaggers and Fetus fetishists behaving badly in NY-23:
“We’ve gotten reports that people are standing there, covered with Hoffman stickers and yelling anti-choice stuff at voters,” said O’Neill, a St. Lawrence native who has been running the party’s GOTV effort for Bill Owens in NY-23.
Hard to understand how that wouldn’t sway moderate conservative voters. RINOs!
