Votes are still being counted in NY-23, but it looks like Democrat Bill Owens is going to win this. He's up by 3 with 85 percent reporting.
Washington Independent talked with Watertown Mayor Jeff Graham -- a local Hoffman supporter -- tonight:
"We lost," said Graham. "The Scozzafava endorsement, the [Watertown Daily Times] endorsement of Owens-I mean, they roughed Hoffman up."
Could Hoffman still pull out a win? Graham grimaced. "It's over."
Can't wait to read the recriminations and finger-pointing on this one. I'll stick with my original argument -- undermine your party's candidate, don't be surprised if you lose.
