Winners and Losers in NY-23

George Stephanopoulos picks the winners and loses from the wild special election race in New York's 23rd congressional district.

Winners:
  • Rahm Emanuel - for opening seat up with McHugh pick for Army Secretary.
  • Chuck Schumer and Steve Israel - for convincing Scozzafava to endorse Owens.
  • Joe Biden - for closing the deal with last minute rally.
  • Dede Scozzafava - what will she get from the White House and grateful Dems?
Losers:
  • Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty - if you go for the kill, you gotta win.
  • NRCC - lost once with Scozzafava, once with Hoffman.
  • Club for Growth - a million dollars is a terrible thing to waste.
