Lamont Gets Place on Ballot
33% of the delegates at the Connecticut Democratic Convention endorsed Ned Lamont, giving the underdog liberal a place on the primary ballot in August.
Although Lieberman is still the heavy favorite, Political Wire points out that the primary will be on the national radar as the first example of what is expected to be a national referendum on some of the key policies of the Bush administration. It will be an ominous message for Republicans if Lieberman doesn't win in a landslide.
Lamont's chances have increased given his influence on the web.
