I support Ned Lamont

I support Ned Lamont for U.S. Senate

Way back in 1988, I sided with then-Senator Lowell Weicker when he was challenged by Joe Lieberman, who, despite being the Democrat in the race, attacked Weiker from the right. Lieberman won the day, thanks in large part to support from Republicans who thought Weiker was too liberal, and he’s been an embarrassment ever since.

In the elections that have followed, I’ve had to choose between voting for Liberman or voting for his even more conservative Republican opponent. This time though I have a choice, and I’m supporting Ned Lamont’s primary challenge. It’s about time we had an actual Democrat as the junior Senator from Connecticut, and kicking out people like Lieberman is the first step to pulling the Democratic Party back to the left where it belongs.
