Connecticut Politics and Elections: Coverage, Analysis, Maps and Commentary
Lamont should be very proud that his candidacy shifted the debate about our country's role in Iraq not only in Connecticut but throughout the nation. I hope that Lieberman and other senators recognize and acknowledge that we will not tolerate a misguided war. Lieberman didn't win because of all his talk about breaking through the partisan gridlock - he won because despite his dogged support for the war, people were afraid to vote for someone that was perceived as a one trick pony in the face of very real terrorist threats and escalating concerns about health care and energy. But in the larger sense, Lamont won. In his victory speech, Lieberman is already talking about getting out of Iraq. Talk about a paradigm shift. Thank you Ned Lamont for putting your laser focus on this issue and making us all think a lot harder about what we are doing in Iraq. And by the way, this is not from a Lamont voter.
Revenge of the unaffiliated CT votors.
Lamont's defeat might well be the one truely bright spot tonight.
Looks like little ol' CT ain't so blue after all. With all the smack the Lamont folks talked over the past few months it's ok for all you Lieberman supporters to gloat tomorrow. Yeeee Hawwwwww!
Lamont should be proud that he saved Chris Shays his seat.Lamont should be proud that his campaign pumped millions of dollars into the local economy.Lieberman should be congratulated for running a good general. He should vote for Dodd for majority leader, just for kicks and giggles.
