Overnight Open Forum

Chris Murphy releases a new ad attacking Johnson over security. So far, Murphy has been attacking Johnson on the two fronts she probably expected to be strongest on: security and health care.

A judge has dismissed most of the state's lawsuit against No Child Left Behind, but the ruling was jurisdictional in nature, and had more to do with procedure than the merits of the lawsuit.

Lamont has donated more money to his campaign.

A new Q-Poll is expected out tomorrow morning.

A field coordinator affiliated with the Simmons campaign is caught using images from the Holocaust to make a point about Universal Health Care on his Facebook site. Nasty.

Rudy Giulani will host a fundraiser for Rob Simmons in October.

What else is going on?

GC... are you going to do an update on "races to watch" anytime soon?

I can't believe that Rob Simmons has the nerve to run an ad whining about Washington trying to "steal our defense jobs." Where the heck has he been going to work for the the least six years? If he hadn't been asleep at the switch, the Sub Base never would have gotten on the Base Closure List to begin with.

It wasn't a field coordinator from the Simmons campaign. It was a volunteer.

"jurisdictional in nature" is a complete spin! A dismissal is a dismissal.....

Murphy's ad contains empty platitudes with respect to his position on important issues regarding safety/civil liberties. And, the attack portion of the ad cites to the incomplete NY Times "leak" story. Not very compelling, on either front.

anon 11;19, so Dodd has been in DC five times as long,,,and HE didn;t stop the base from going on the list.

Rob saved the base. Deal with it

Um, I heard another six American soldiers died in Iraq, in what the 24/7's were calling a record week for suicide bombings. Isn't that great news.

Who was it that thought invading Iraq would make our country safer? And why on Earth are they still running the show?

Also, rumor has it that that Q-poll will come through for Joe, with over a 10% lead. Who here still puts much faith in that organization? Not me.

Stratford Police have endrosed Dan Debicella for State Seante is the 21st District to replace Doc Gunther.

This is a serious blow to his rival, Chris Jones, who heavily courted the police in preceding months (and whose campaign manager claimed on this site the "police were behind Jones").

Race looks less and less competitive by the day.

First Lite Rock claimed Moveon.org had nithng to do with him when they trashed nancy iwth bogus ads for months

Now he cirbs all their tlaking points for his own negative ad.

I think his level of expertise on Iraq is maybe finding it on a map. Note to Lite Rock. when you were a little kid in NY, there was this thing they called the Killings Fields and these people they called the Boat People.

Read about them before telling us to hang more white flags, please

Does it bother no one that attacks Murphy's new ad that the ad it is responding to from Johnson is completely built on a false premise?

Or are facts to difficult to grasp?

The whole point of the Base Realignment and Closure committee is to be devoid of politics. It was set up so that local congressmen would have no role in keeping bases off the list before the list was made. There was absolutely nothing more Simmons, or any congressman, could have done.

The Q-Poll was the ONLY poll that even put Lieberman w/in striking distance in 1988.

Not true. The judge specifically held that several of the claims could not be litigated unless and until CT violated the law. In other words, the controversy was not yet ripe.

It is clear from the opinion that the judge did not even consider the merits of those claims...
