Connecticut Politics and Elections: Coverage, Analysis, Maps and Commentary
You should include a choice for Lamont "beating the spread."
i was still at work during the debate, so i missed it...is there anywhere i can get a hold of a video of it on the web?
CSPAN carried it, and is rebroadcasting it tomorrow morning at 6:00 AM.
Schlesinger won the debate. He was mentioned twice and wasn't even there and isnt the incumbent.
That's a really good point, Disgruntled Republican. While I did not see the debate, the fact that Lamont and Lieberman are beating up on each other so much is great for the Republican candidate.
That's another good point. How mant Republicans and Independents actually watched the debate?I keep hearing that Lieberman was trying to appeal to them, but was the debate even on their (your) radar?
But Angelina, did you watch the debate yourself?
cgg said..." That's another good point. How mant Republicans and Independents actually watched the debate?"I did, most of it anyway; but my usually political wife (has the TV on FOX News all the time) went out and mowed the lawn. (she is in fact an excellent wife).I was hoping Lamont would do better, he did okay but failed to deliver a knockout punch.
Now that I've had a chance to digest the whole thing, I still think Lamont did better, if only by beating expectations and forcing Joe Lieberman to appear like a cranky old man. Lamont's issues were bread and butter for primary voters. Lieberman's biggest points, which came on experience, national security and moderation, will probably play a lot better with voters in November. Which may have been the point.A lot of the spin I'm seeing this morning has Lamont doing better than expected, but Lieberman doing a "forceful" job. I really do wish there was another debate, though. Unlike a lot of debates, this one really got to the heart of matters.
I agree with you about Lamont having no knockout punch moment. But I don't think he needed one. Really Lieberman hung himself.
Now that it's clear Lamont won the debate and will obviously win the primary are our three candidates for congress ready to come out and endorse Ned? I have sent a bunch of blog postings asking Chris Murphy but he doesnt answer them. Anyone have any idea what the plan is with Courtney, Farrell and Murphy endorsing Ned? Chris we would love to hear from you on this blog (or your own).
