It seems the Republican candidate in New York's 23rd District congressional race is too moderate for her party.
Dede Scozzafava has dropped out of the race, citing a slip in the polls as a factor contributing to her decision.

core GOP values because of her support for abortion rights and gay marriage.
So what does this all mean?
