“As far as I know there’s no one in any of the offices doing that [petition gathering],” Steinfels said.
Today Ken Krayeske of the Green Party was at the Secretary of the State's office, and reported that he found only 65 certified signatures, out of 70 total, for the Connecticut for Lieberman party. This is compared to 414 for the Concerned Citizens' statewide ticket, 67 for the Independent Party statewide ticket, and 3296 certified out of 4550 submitted for the Green Party.
Which means that either the CT for Lieberman folks are sitting on a big stack of petitions, or they simply aren't collecting all that many of them. The deadline for filing petitions is August 9th--Lieberman needs about 7,500 to get on the ballot. Unless he's planning a big push over the next two weeks... he may not make it.
If Lieberman loses the primary and doesn't turn in enough signatures, he's finished. Literally.
Update: Concorde at My Left Nutmeg has an account of Lieberman's petition-gathering, so it looks like it is happening. How much has been gathered is uncertain.
