And good riddance:

Six months after losing a bruising battle for the 23rd Congressional District seat, Dierdre K. Scozzafava has decided to take a break from politics.
The Gouverneur resident said Wednesday she will not seek a seventh term in the 122nd Assembly District.
“If you go back to the run for Congress, I was really looking to do something different and go in a different direction and be challenged differently,” the Republican said Wednesday. “That hasn’t changed. As much as I’ve enjoyed my time in the state Assembly, I think it’s time for me to take a breather and go in a different direction.”
Ms. Scozzafava said she has “a lot of opportunities in different directions,” although she reaffirmed there was no deal made in exchange for her suspending her congressional campaign with three days to go and throwing her support to the eventual winner, Democrat William L. Owens.

The Albany Times-Union reports:

Scozzafava was already facing at least one primary challenger. The seat is expected to stay in Republican hands.

Flashbacks from last fall: “Dede Goes Down Upstate” and “Battle Cry in the North Country.” The man who exposed Scozzafava as a RINO and drove her out of last year’s election, Doug Hoffman is running again in NY23.
