Democrat to enter U.S. Senate race to challenge Joseph Lieberman


HARTFORD, Conn. -- Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont entered Connecticut's U.S. Senate race Monday to challenge U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman for the Democratic nomination.

Lamont's challenge is the first Lieberman has faced from within his party during his 18 years in office.

Lamont hopes to garner the support of Connecticut Democrats who've expressed dissatisfaction with Lieberman's pro-war stance in Iraq and his perceived closeness with President Bush's administration.

"Our troops are making their country proud with their service," Lamont is quoted on his campaign Web site. "But this war is not making us any safer. It's time for US troops to move to the background and let the Iraqi people step forward and take responsibility for their own destiny."

62. Joementum "nasal drone" Limpmann = Carbuncle on the anus of Connecticut
Surgery need to remove "Carbuncle Man"

For those not acquainted

A carbuncle is an abscess larger than a boil, usually with one or more openings draining pus onto the skin. It is usually caused by bacterial infection.

I am glad that someone will challenge the DINO Lieberman.

Many times I have thought that the only good political thing to come from the stolen 2000 selection was that we have not been saddled by that strange bible-thumper.

15. "that strange bible-thumper"

That phrase is so strange and wonderful somehow!
He DOES creep me out. I have had intense dislike
for him since he attacked Howard Dean (and ALL
progressives in the primaries). He had NO compunction
against saying the MOST OUTRAGEOUS things.

I will be sending money to Lamont.
And I have a bet with a Connecticut
DUer that I will come for a visit
if they are successful at taking a crowbar
and prising Joe LieberManO'War from his
sinecure.

72. Lieberman on why he voted to Impeach Clinton:
In debating the President's fate, we must remember that we are deciding is whether to supersede the people's decision about who should lead them--to substitute our judgment for theirs.
http://www.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/stories/1999/02/12/senat...

Perhaps he was refering to Clinton's approval ratings during the Impeachment proceedings: 73%

His words could just as easily apply to his behavior now as he has no interest in censuring a pResident who has weakened and ignored the Constitution and has a 32% approval rating.

I really don't want Lieberman substituting his judgement for ours. Go Lamont Go!

9. Lamont is definitely better than Lieberman.
However, can't we get someone who isn't in tight with the large corporations. I would like to see more civil rights activists running. But between Lamont and Lieberman, Lamont is the one to back.

17. Lamont is "old money" actually
and his family tree is quite interesting. His grandfather was Corliss Lamont, a well known Socialist in his day. He strikes me as one of those old CT Yankees that can be quirky liberals. It's kind of nice.

P.S. Lamont is definitely handsomer than Joe (that's not saying much given the mug Joe has on him). He comes across as soft spoken (perhaps a little too much so)and very decent. He's a likable guy but not too approachable, maybe a bit like John Kerry.

10. This is great, but I worry about challenges like this backfiring
We definitely need to purge our party of these DINO's, but the IN NAME ONLY part can at least help us gain a majority in Congress. Still, I'm sick to death of seeing people like Lieberman pretending to represent democratic principles, while at the same time, enabling the crooks that are destroying our nation. I hope Lamont wins the primary AND the general.

11. If the DINO's stay the GOP will still have a working majority
even if the Democratic party has a majority. When push comes to shove they'll vote the GOP way, to use and extreme example - no on impeachment. I can hear them now "this has be a far too decisive a process, that needs to end so that the healing can begin."

63. No kidding. A majority with a sizable number of DINOs...
is still no majority. And it only fuels the fire of the right wing because they can blame all their fuck-ups on the false Dem "majority".

Vote ALL the bums out, is what I say.

13. Lamont for Senate Website up!
http://www.nedlamont.org /

Why am I running?
I am running for the US Senate because Connecticut deserves a Senator who will stand up to the Bush administration whose policies are so harmful to our state and our country. A Senator who will turn back judicial appointees outside of the mainstream, who will fight for affordable universal health care, and who will challenge the status quo in Washington DC.

Current Campaign News:

Six weeks ago, I issued a challenge to the people of Connecticut: If you agree with my vision, sign up to volunteer.

I asked 1,000 of you to sign up and over 1,500 from Connecticut have already, with more joining every day. People are volunteering, donating, and sharing your thoughts and talent and ideas.

Ours will be a grassroots campaign. We will be going door to door, person to person, to find people who share our vision - that it is time for change in Washington DC.

I welcome the debate and thank you for your interest and support.

Due to this support, I formally announce my candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate from Connecticut.


Help dump "George W." Lieberman...Contribute to Ned's Campaign!!

27. What are Ned's stances on the other issues? Anyone know?
Would he have voted for Roberts? Alito?
What about censure would he have voted for that?
Where is he on Gay Marriage? That is my number 1 issue. I only want to support candidates who support Gay Marriage.
Where is he on Abortion?


I'd vote for Ned over the devil anyday but he's got to be a real progressive or what's the point?

61. I was at the State House yesterday for his announcement
He said he would have led the charge for filibuster on Alito. He is very pro gay rights. He is very pro-choice. He didn't mention the censure vote -- but from all else he was saying -- I think he would have voted for it. There was a certain energy in the room yesterday. I think this could be a big surprise this year. -- Let's hope! He seems to be a very progressive dem. I signed on to volunteer.

The nice thing about him is that not only is he NOT Joe "freedom of religion doesn't mean freedom from religion" Lieberman, he actually has progressive ideas.

I was standing next to a guy that got a big laugh... when the guy said, "Ned knows there is evil in the world..." and the guy shouted out "Lieberman" was standing right next to me.

I was there from 4-4:30, as I stepped out of work and walked over.

He will not win, but he will have performed a great public service if he gets Lieberman why he continues to hold a view of a colonial war in Iraq that has never jived with either the facts at hand or common sense.

42. Hey Jack,
You have some special information you want to share with us about why Ned Lamont won't win?
I'd like to hear it.

We're talking about a primary here, not controlled by the vascillating sheeple in the middle but by activists like you and me. I don't see most Dems getting too excited about interrupting their day to go out and vote in a primary for Jo-mentum. I do, however see a lot of excited grass roots Dems ready to volunteer or contribute to someone who makes sense and is not the kind of opportunist tool of the Bush administration that Joe Lieberman certainly is.

If there is a movement for Joe (I've predicted before) it will come from Republicans injecting themselves into this race, somehow. He is their new Zell Miller, the Democratic MVP! As for me and the people I know, we'll be checking our voting status, changing from unafilliated (if necessary) and voting for Ned Lamont (by absentee preferably).

52. A simple request of both candidates
Each candidate needs to make a very public pledge that if they lose, they will endorse and actively campaign for the winner.

Lieberman's a Democrat, so I have no doubt that he would make such a pledge. Can Lamont's supporters say the same thing about their candidate?

53. Lieberman already said that he will run even if he loses primary
This was posted in DU about 2 months ago, at the end of a long article about the problems that Lieberman was having with the antiwar Democrats in his own state, when he was asked what he thought about a possible Lamont challenge, Lieberman told the reporter that his name would be in the November ballot no matter what happens in the primary.

60. Considering the amount of misinformation about Lieberman . . .
I'm pretty skeptical about what you say. For one thing, if he loses the Democratic Party, I don't see how Lieberman's name is on the ballot, unless it's as a nominee of another party, and Lieberman has already ruled that out.

77. IndianaGreen is correct.
I saw that too. It's common for candidates in the NE to end up on multiple lines. Especially NY.

Democrat, Working Families, Independence, Liberal, Green
Republican, Conservative, Right To Life

He supports almost EVERY ILLEGAL THING bush* has done, sees no wrongdoing.

I doubt he will support the Democrat if he loses.

64. And he's had his mouth on Shrub & Dick's naughty bits ever since
And the thought of hearing that guy's voice on TV for one more second makes me physically ill. I never understood how the people of Connecticut voted for small, lumpy pseudo-Democrat who sounds like he hasn't had a productive bowel movement in decades.

68. And in their one debate Holy Joe rolled over and died
for example he said nothing when Dick Cheney Flat out LIED about how Halliburton didn't get government money. Lord save us from any more standard bearers like this. esp with his comments yesterday regarding emergency room contraceptives in catholic hospitals and the censure motion. "we shouldn't be scolding the president" I seem to remember a bit of scolding came from holy joe when Clinton was president but that was sex which makes Joe's mind go all squishy - an assault on the fundamental rights granted in the constitution of the United Sates and lying his way into a war that has cost us irreplaceable blood and treasure - Joe's got no problem with that.

PEH. What a schmuck.

73. "....Lamont's challenge is the first Lieberman"
Clue to Dems- no accountability leads to backstabbing and Republican enabling.

80. CT-Sen: Lieberman under 50 against Lamont...OLD Daily KOS article...
by kos
Fri Feb 17, 2006 at 11:25:03 AM PDT

Holy crap. These numbers are simply amazing.

Rasmussen. 2/15. Likely voters. MoE 4.5% (No trend lines)

Lieberman (I) 45
Lamont (D) 24
Republican 14

Now this poll is pretty nonsensical, since Lieberman CAN'T run as an independent in the general election unless he were to quit the party before the filing deadline.

More useful, in the crosstabs of this poll we see that amongst Democrats, the breakdown is as follows:

Lieberman 47
Lamont 36

So Lieberman is under 50 amongst Democrats, just 11 points ahead, against a candidate no one has ever heard of. That's absolutely insane.

But it's clear that Lieberman is starting to feel the heat. Yesterday, people signed up to Lieberman's email list got the first email from Lieberman's camp since 2004, this one bragging about how tough he's been on the administration:

Nest few months should be interesting, especially when Lamont is "known"

82. 
m amazed at Democrats, cowering with this presidents numbers so low. The administration just has to raise the specter of the war and the Democrats run and hide. Too many Democrats are going to do the same thing they did in 2000 and 2004. In the face of this, theyll say wed better just focus on domestic issues. cower to the argument, that whatever you do, if you question the administration, youre helping the terrorists.
