âThe Democratic voters of Connecticut have spoken and chosen Ned Lamont as their nominee. Both we and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) fully support Mr. Lamontâs candidacy. Congratulations to Ned on his victory and on a race well run.
âJoe Lieberman has been an effective Democratic Senator for Connecticut and for America. But the perception was that he was too close to George Bush and this election was, in many respects, a referendum on the President more than anything else. The results bode well for Democratic victories in November and our efforts to take the country in a new direction.â
Okay, I think we're pretty close to this one being over. CT-Sen. 94.39% reporting. Lamont 51.73%, Lieberman 48.27%. It's tight. Closer than I would have thought. But it's held pretty much steady for a while.
