This morning CT Bob posted an interview with Alan Schlesinger. It's a nice introduction to his candidacy, or at least it feels like an introduction. We haven't heard much about Schlesinger since before the primary. His name will appear first on the ballot but most of us probably don't know where he stands on the issues, and what his priorities would be if he were to be elected.
How did this happen? Certainly Schlesinger's views are more in line with the GOP than Joe Lieberman's. His personal problems pale in comparison to some of the other scandals currently facing the party. Joe Lieberman isn't a liberal Democrat, but he's not a Republican by any stretch of the imagination. And yet we have a fifth party candidate stealing what should be Schlesinger's strongest base of support.
If Democrats attempted to support a moderate Republican over their own endorsed candidate I'd be livid. It's one thing for a PAC to support say, a pro-choice Republican over an anti-choice Democrat, but a political party should support the person they endorsed. Why isn't there more anger from local Republicans? Or am I just not seeing it?
