Lamont Leads Lieberman in Polls

According to Political Wire :

In the Connecticut U.S. Senate race, Ned Lamont (D) has surged ahead of Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) and now holds a razor-thin 51% to 47% lead among likely Democratic primary voters, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.

Joe’s internal polling must have told him this was coming because on the same day it’s being announced that Bill Clinton will be here in Waterbury on Monday to campaign for him and try and stop the hemorrhaging.   Big Dog may not have taken it personally when Lieberman stabbed us all in the back with his speech on the floor of the Senate during the impeachment hearings, but many of us did.  Loyalty to machine politics runs deep.

I spoke to Tom Swan, Ned’s campaign manager, who said:

We’re disappointed that President Clinton isn’t content to abide by the results of the Democratic primary, and we hope the President convinces Joe to respect the will of Democratic voters.  We look forward to having him come back and campaign for us in the fall.

FDLers will have much to celebrate when we meet up  with local bloggers, members of the campaign and the Kiss float tonight in Branford at the Owenego Inn:

Time:  7:00 pm
Address:  40 Linden Avenue, Branford, CT

How do you think Big Dog is gonna like the Kiss Float?
