In Connecticut: A Victory of Sorts

Ned Lamont's primary victory tonight over Loserman in Connecticut is a definitive victory for democracy, whether it is also a Democratic victory will depend on what the sitting Dems do now.

Lieberman confirmed he is running as an Independent in November. If he wants to be independent, the Democratic party should let him; call or write Senator Reid and tell him that Joe Lieberman should be stripped of all of his committee assignments. From the moment he stepped on that stage and failed to concede the Democratic nomination, he ceased being a Democrat. My e-mail:
Senator Reid,

When Senator Lieberman took the stage tonight after his loss to Ned Lamont in the Connecticut Senate primary and confirmed his run as an Independent for the November general election, he relinquished his status as a Democrat. I respectfully submit, that as Minority Leader, you should move to strip Senator Lieberman of all of his committee assignments.
