Dede And Doug

Mark Halperin on New York's 23rd congressional district race:
While it is true that there is a tactical split in the Republican Party, the circumstances in this contest are unusual — and unlikely to be representative of a broader pattern. [Dede] Scozzafava is an exceedingly liberal Republican and [Doug] Hoffman is not as conservative as some are making him out to be. Still, there will be cases next year in which right-wing forces may be emboldened to support primary challenges to more moderate candidates, potentially dividing the GOP.
