Scozzafava denounced national conservatives for "the amount of hate and lies and the deceitfulness" used against her: "I don't believe that should be the characteristics that define the Republican Party. I think people should be allowed to have discussions and reasonable disagreements. But this was a full frontal assault on me personally and politically, for weeks."

She also gave an example of the sort of calls she's gotten from across the country since endorsing Owens. "There was a man from Oregon," she said. "We talked for half an hour. In the beginning, he just started lecturing me on the Bible, lecturing me on sin, on liberalism. Finally, I said, 'How about honesty? How about telling the truth?'"

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
