Little Joe Lieberman: In Big Trouble?

Shares


Touchstone has already noted that the latest poll shows Lamont making huge strides against Lieberman, pulling close, at 46-40. It's a strange, tiny (218 person) poll, but it certainly looks like Joe is in for a race.

Denis Horgan, at the Hartford Courant, adds this note:

Seeking to lambaste Ned Lamont, Lieberman's primary opponent, the senator's staff and admirers reach into the Bush-Cheney-Coulter playbook. No less a light than Sean Smith, Lieberman's campaign manager offers the bizarre, Orwellian, Bushian assault on the foe:
"The only public record this guy [Lamont] has, he voted time and again like a Republican," Smith said. "Why would we support that?" He said Lieberman would not promise to support Lamont, because the businessman voted frequently with Republicans as a local official in Greenwich.

There might be a lesson here for Democratic Senators who sell out to conservatives.
