Turnout Strong So Far

The Courant is reporting that turnout so far is high, and has even surpassed that of two years ago in some places:
State officials are projecting a strong turnout and reported a busy morning at the polls, which opened at 6 a.m. today. Turnout in Danbury, Wilton, New Britain and Vernon was outpacing that from two years ago, said Dan Tapper, spokesman in the secretary of the state's office.

A suspected reason for the large turnout is the race between Sen. Joe Lieberman and anti-war challenger Ned Lamont. (AP)

That, and three of the most-watched congressional races in the country.

I have to think that high turnout only helps Courtney, Murphy and Farrell. I have no idea what it means for Lamont--could be a good thing.

There aren't enough voters in the state to help Lamont, at least today. But his campaign mightily helped the three Democrat congressional candidates. All of his anti-war ads bolstered their campaign messages. It was like getting $10 million of supportive advertising. I hope they all acknowldege his help. He ought to get something for his $15 million, other than a second place finish.
