WATERTOWN, NY  – Early this afternoon, I contacted Dede Scozzafava’s former campaign manager Matt Burns, who told me that since she left the race he was “not familiar with her current thinking or decision-making.” A little while later, he clarified his thinking on Scozzafava’s endorsement of Bill Owens.

“Dede is entitled to her own opinion, as is everyone, but I obviously disagree with her decision,” said Burns. “I am supporting Doug Hoffman, because denying Nancy Pelosi another foot soldier is vital to restoring fiscal responsibility and common sense in Washington.”

Burns, a Republican strategist who worked at the Republican National Convention last year, was in an awkward position in the final weeks of the Scozzafava campaign, getting heaped with scorn from the conservative media, and talking to liberal media like TalkingPointsMemo to get his side out. With this, he’s liberated.
