Maddow Talks with Scozzafava


Rachel Maddow spoke on Wednesday with Dede Scozzafava, whose congressional election defeat last week in upstate New York has been linked by antigay groups like the National Organization for Marriage to the socially moderate Republican's support for marriage equality.

The interview was one of the New York assemblywoman's first since her ouster from the race at the hands of conservative Republicans. Although Maddow and Scozzafava did not discuss the claims about marriage equality, the assemblywoman mentioned "a national agenda [among conservatives] that really didn't put the local interests first."

Scozzafava voted for the marriage equality bill that passed the New York state assembly in 2007, and she successfully ran unopposed for reelection in 2008.
