PRIMARY NIGHT IN CONNECTICUT

Every so often a big state primary or state election comes along that attracts the attention of the nation. I remember this was the case with Ahhhnold winning California. Tonight all attention is on the Democrats in Connecticut, in the fight between incumbent Joe Lieberman and challenger Ned Lamont.

Lamont is running as the anti-Iraq War candidate as far as I can tell and has picked up a lot of support. I find it incredible that voters in Connecticut may be ready to throw out Lieberman. A lot has been made about him being pro-war and too close to President Bush. But I don't know why people would think that he's a big Bush supporter. Heck, he ran against him in 2000, for VP! But anyway, Lieberman is in trouble and you might as well check out that race and find out what is going on.
