College Republicans to canvass for Joe Lieberman..

If you are a political junkie, as I am, you are likely to be keeping an eye on the Connecticut senatorial race. The race is emerging as a referendum on the war in Iraq. To say the stakes are high would be an understatement.

What I find interesting is the number of right-wing conservatives and Republicans that have endorsed Lieberman. Now comes word that the Young College Republicans will be bussing in members this weekend to Connecticut to canvas on behalf of Lieberman. These recent developments suggest to me that Joe is already looking beyond the August 8 primary to his independent or Republican run for the seat in the November general election.

As I said, there is a lot riding on this election. Stay tuned!


The Quinnipiac Poll results, just released, have Lamont over Lieberman, 54-41. I don't think these results mean very much. Internal polls by both campaigns show each side winning by a small margin. It is likely that the side that does the best job of getting out the vote that will come away with a victory on Tuesday.
