Obama sent a delegation to prod Scozzy to endorse Owens. She was very receptive after widespread conservative attacks. From Politico:
Scozzafava, according to one account, was receptive to the entreaties after becoming a target of intense conservative opposition over the past month.

...“She’s devastated that these outside interests are trying to hijack her moderate wing of the party," said one New York Democrat who had spoken to Scozzafava.
