Angered by 23rd District loss, Maroun may challenge Duprey

Listen to this story
Political fall-out continues from this week's 23rd district congressional race. Democrat Bill Owens won, in part because of a simmering feud between conservative acvitists and Republican Party candidate Dede Scozzafava. Scozzafava dropped out of the race and endorsed Owens, instead of Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman. In the wake of that contest, it appears that more rifts are emerging within the GOP. Franklin County legislator Paul Maroun says he might challenge one of Scozzafava's strongest supporters in next year's Assembly race. Maroun is from Tupper Lake, describes himself as a conservative Republican. He's pro-life and opposes same-sex marriage. He says Assemblywoman Janet Duprey, who represents the 114th district, angered many Republicans when she failed to back Doug Hoffman.
