Gov. Rell will be signing the campaign finance reform bill at the Old State House today. There was an excellent article in the Journal Inquirer yesterday about the bill, and the need to fix it next February.
Naval cutbacks are focing Electric Boat to lay off more than 2,400 workers. I guess the Department of Defense had to do something to ruin our economy. An issue for Simmons next year?
All the latest in Weicker gossip! Greenwich Democrats (including Howard Dean's brother Jim Dean) seem enthusiatic about Weicker, although many still support Lieberman.
In the meantime, William F. Buckley of Stamford, a Weicker foe from the '88 race, was amused at the thought of Weicker running against Lieberman again. "I'll have to revive my committee called 'BuckPAC,'" he said. All we need now is Michael Dukakis and Dan Quayle to make it 1988 all over again.
What else is happening today?
Update: Take a look at this story on Daily Kos today, in which a Lieberman staffer encourages her email list to go out there and freep a Courant poll. Wow. Does Weicker worry them that much?
