NY-23 Goes Democrat

Democrat wins House seat in heavily GOP area in NY
By VALERIE BAUMAN (AP) 8 hours ago
ALBANY, N.Y. Democrat Bill Owens has captured the special election for a New York congressional seat that became a fight over the identity of the Republican Party.
Owens defeated Conservative Doug Hoffman and Republican Dierdre Scozzafava (skoh-zuh-FAH'-vuh) in the heavily Republican 23rd congressional District in rural northern New York. Scozzafava abruptly withdrew Saturday and supported Owens.
Hoffman has conceded the race.
With 88 percent of the precincts reporting, Owens had 49 percent of the vote to 46 percent for Hoffman. Scozzafava had 6 percent.
The race has been getting national attention, with some calling it a referendum on President Barack Obama and others saying it could help Republicans focus their message to attract more people to the party.

4. Did you mean Democratic?
Let's use the real name of our party, not the name the Republicans chose for us because it rhymes with "rat."

5. No, that's actually correct...
"Democrat" is the way to describe an individual; "Democratic" applies to the Party itself (e.g. "Democratic Party Member..." The pejorative is "Democrat Party".

7. I disagree
The seat went to a democrat.
The seat went democratic.
You need an article to use with the noun "democrat."
