What Ned Lamont and Connecticut Voters can give the rest of us
It's disheartening to see Ned Lamont down in the polls. But I hope that he and his volunteers fight til the very end to hopefully win this election.

But what I really hope is that Ned pulls out people to the voter - people who want change and people who will vote for more democrats than just Ned for US Senate.

We might not succeed at getting rid of Joe Lieberman, but perhaps with the higher turnout, the Lamont legacy might give us something even greater - a democratic house!

There are 3 congressional seats in connecticut that have republican incumbents despite being overwhelmingly democratic in it's makeup. I'm hoping that Lamont draws the voters to the polls because if they are people who want change in DC, then they aren't going to keep republicans in those house position.

I truly believe those three congressional seats that are considered competitive in Connecticut are like that mainly because of the Lamont revolution!

1. We can only hope.
The democratic primary brought out thousands of new registered democrats. If these people work for candidates and vote then we just may win all three seats.

2. We need +15 in House seats.
3 from Connecticut would definitely help to get us there.
