Scozzafava writing election memoir

New York state Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava (R) is writing a memoir about last year’s dramatic special election in the state’s 23rd congressional district. 

Although she was the Republican Party’s nominee, Scozzafava was never embraced by conservatives. She eventually dropped out of the race and endorsed the Democrat, now-Rep. Bill Owens.

{mosads}Many activists were behind Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman and blamed Scozzafava for his defeat.

Scozzafava told WRVO public radio she’s begun assembling notes.

“I have been kind of putting pieces together, yes, just, I think, more so for me, just to kind of go back and recall different moments, and I had jotted down certain occasions and I’ve got a whole calendar of events, and I’m kind of thinking about it again,” said Scozzafava.

She doesn’t yet have a title for the book.
