Angered by 23rd District loss, Maroun may challenge Duprey

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.
