Why Dede Scozzafava Withdrew From the New York 23 Race

There has been a lot of speculation as to the reason for Dede Scozzafava's withdrawal from the special election race in New York's 23rd Congressional District. As support grew for Conservative candidate Doug Hoffman grew support for Scozzafava dwindled. But what proved to be the knockout punch, the last straw?

Besides money pouring in for support of Hoffman, he also garnered endorsements from the following list:

Sarah Palin
George Pataki
Fred Thompson
Dick Armey
Rick Santorum
Tim Pawlenty
Jim Demint
James Dobson

Club For Growth
Police Benevolent Association
Concerned Women
Citizens of the Republic
Susan B. Anthony List
American Conservative Union
Citizens United Political Victory Fund
Campaign for Working Families
NYS Right to Life PAC
Conservative Victory Fund
Eagle Forum
Nat'l Organization for Marriage
America's Independent Party
National Conservative Fund
Gun Owners of American-PVF
Life and Liberty PAC
Minuteman PAC
Right Principles PAC
Term Limits America PAC
Congressman Jeff Flake - AZ
Congressman Linder - GA
The Heart PAC
Republican Majority PAC
Family Research Council PAC
Leadership for America's Future
etc, etc...

These had no influence in the Scozzafava camp, however.

The atomic bomb came on Thursday and everyone knew that it was curtains for Dede.

Iowahawk endorses Doug Hoffman. (Or at least his 1955 Chevy)
