    As a New York pro-choice voter I was thrilled that NY Assemblywoman Scozzafava was selected to run for the Congressional seat being contested and was heartened that perhaps at long last the GOP is seeing the wisdom of supporting fiscally conservative, pro-choice candidates who embrace a very big tent and common sense solutions that respect each individual. The national party would do well to emulate New York’s example and cease their interminable cow-towing to the tired old southern guard that has buried the party with a variety of politics that has been soundly rejected by the electorate in the last two national elections.
    Bravo to Assemblywoman Scozzafava and Bravo to the members of the upstate NY GOP!
