DeDe Scozzafava says she would have been able to agree with seven of ten criteria the GOP is considering to use when deciding whether to support candidates for Congress.
Meanwhile rival Dick Armey said Scozzafava was going to lose anyway and he says Scozzafava burned a bridge that can't be rebuilt when she dropped out of the NY23 race and endorsed Democrat Bill Owens.
Armey and Scozzafava appeared this morning on CBS' Face the Nation.
The topic was whether moderates can survive and prosper in the GOP in 2010, now that the party has lost all its New England seats and all but two in NY.
Scozzafava insisted she is a fiscal conservative citing an analysis she says was done by the Syracuse Post Standard. Armey says Scozzafava was a candidate out of touch with her district.
