More Senate Campaign News

According to the official Lamont blog, Joe Lieberman had agreed to debate Ned Lamont this Sunday on WTNH with Mark Davis, but then backed out.

Fortunately, I have a visual of what I believe the debate would have looked like. I leave it to you to determine which is which.

Also, the Lieberman campaign has been distributing racially charged fliers in and around black churches.

Voters are also switching from unaffiliated to Democrat in droves. I'm not sure who that's good for.

One more week to go, folks.

Disgruntled...you and i were the only smart operatives here who check the u to d's with the reg of voters....we as usual are ahead of the curve...you agree with me that most of the switches are going to Lamont?

Bruce, I would agree with that the switching from U to D is largely for Lamont...that said, I don't know on the absentee ballots. Joe has always been extremely strong on absentee ballots so I would imagine that would be a large part of them but I am sure Lamont has something to do with it too.

I still think Lamont wins a close primary election.

So Genghis,

You going to be one of those "U" to "D"'s. C'mon man, I'm counting on you. If you don't come through CTKeith will take my $$$$. (sorry, GC, I can't rein him in...)

My wife and I filed absentee ballot applications over a month ago but were not directly contacted by any of the campaigns prior to receiving the ballots and sending them in. Don't sophisticated absentee ballot operations check the lists of applicants and work them hard as it is certain they are going to vote?

How about Ned Lamont last night on the Colbert Report? He played it pretty cool. Though he was also playing to his base...

You know, I really wanted to vote in this one. But unfortunately (and this is really embarassing) I discovered that I'm still registered as a damn Green! So no go.

But the will was there.

I believe that most of the voters switching from U to D are doing it to vote for Lamont and they will be showing up on the 8th or voting AB

I knew you were a whacky left winger in disguise!

Ghengis:

The fliers you deem "racially charged" are actually pretty fair. They quote Lieberman's record and one of Lamont's more forgettable comments ... this is hardly a hit, if you want to remember racially charged go back to the Helms-Gantt race (white hands crumpling up a rejection letter) or Willie Horton by Bush Pere.
