As Taegan Goddard reports over at Political Wire, “key allies of Sen. Joseph Lieberman
(D-CT) are making contingency plans” for an Indie bid.
And now we learn that the CT chapter of AFT will buck the three-term Sen to back Ned Lamont.
AFT becomes the first major union to bail out on Lieberman.
We heard very recently from one of Lieberman’s closest friends that he knows he could “really lose this thing.”
If more unions defect, he’ll have good reason to think that.
Shorter CT Dems: “You had me at, ‘Someone’s running against Lieberman.’ ”
UPDATE 2: What Jane says:
Things look better and better for Lamont every day, and I hope every Senator who ignored our faxes and voted for cloture on Alito gets a little shiver when they watch what is happening to Joe.
Exactly. I want Joe’s demise to send the message that we want to start getting some value for our support. Donation without representation is no longer acceptable.
