CT-SEN: Lamont To Get UAW Endorsement?
CT-SEN: Lamont To Get UAW Endorsement?
By Greg Sargent

Ned Lamont is poised to receive the coveted endorsement of the United Auto Workers, a source familiar with talks between the two camps tells me. The endorsement could be announced as early as tomorrow at a big event being planned for the occasion, the source says, and a press advisory could go out as early as tomorrow morning. The support of the group -- which remained neutral in the primary -- could give Lamont an organizational and political boost at a time when Lieberman is leading in polls and is building support among GOP voters.

While nothing is certain until there's a public announcement, and anything could happen between now and tomorrow, the source tells me that he thinks it's a "done deal," adding that Lamont looked to be getting the endorsement because of "Lieberman's positions on trade and health care -- he refuses to support universal health care and enabled Bush's right-wing judges." More coming.

1. Lieberman is not leading in the polls. There is no Lieberman!
If you pay attention to Lieberman and acknowledge him then you are feeding the trolls! Lieberman lost! He's finished! This is going to be a traditional race between a Democrat (Ned Lamont) and a Republican (Alan Schlesinger).
