    Hillary Clinton has cancelled her trip to Charlotte after protests over the deadly shooting Keith Lamont Scott entered a fourth night. The Democratic candidate had announced that she was preparing to get back on the campaign trail with a week filled with appearances before actual voters, after ducking off the rally circuit to prepare for Monday's debate.

    Police called him a "Good Samaritan," but Minneapolis detectives were still investigating Friday the case of a man who shot and killed an armed robber he chased down the night before. The man who fired the fatal shot had a permit for his handgun and told police he used the weapon after the fleeing robber turned and confronted him behind a restaurant. Police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer said the department was leaning toward classifying the shooting as self-defense. "However, decisions on charging are left up to the county attorney's office. And since there's a death, it might even be taken...

    Greenwich cable television entrepreneur Ned Lamont will officially announce Tuesday morning that he is running for governor. The announcement will be made at the Old State House in downtown Hartford, which is the same site where Lamont launched his candidacy against U.S. Senator Joseph I. Lieberman. Lamont is best known for defeating Lieberman in the August 2006 primary, but he lost three months later in a three-way race in the general election. Lieberman pulled 50 percent, while Lamont had 40 percent and Republican Alan Schlesinger scored only 10 percent. One of the key factors was the state's Republican establishment failed...

  • For Sen. Lieberman, Identity Crisis Continues: Unsure what party he'll run for in 2012 (GOP?)

    Connecticut's junior senator, Joe Lieberman, is gearing up for the 2012 reelection campaign but how the now-independent runs is anyone's guess. The senator told Politico that he might run as a Democrat, or an independent, then again --“Or a Republican,” Lieberman added, jokingly. “I have all sorts of options.” Lieberman's been left, right and center. When he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1988, he was a Democrat and ascended to the party's number two slot as a vice presidential candidate in 2000. But then, that party train derailed when Ned Lamont beat Lieberman in the 2006 Democratic primary....

    Ned Lamont, the Greenwich Democrat who challenged U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman two years ago, believes his former opponent will soon join the Republican minority in Congress. Lamont declined to say Thursday whether the junior senator from Connecticut and self-described "independent Democrat" should be punished for backing U.S. Sen. John McCain's presidential bid. "My sense is he's psychologically moving into the Republican column," Lamont said. "I think he'll probably jump."

    WASHINGTON - Federal investigators have found that Sen. Joe Lieberman's re-election campaign caused its Web site to crash on the eve of the August 2006 primary, a collapse he had blamed on supporters of Democratic challenger Ned Lamont. "In short, the server that hosted the Web site failed because it was overutilized and misconfigured," according to an Oct. 25, 2006, e-mail included in FBI documents obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. "There was no evidence of (an) attack." Investigators added that, once reported by the media, the accusations by Lieberman's campaign helped overwhelm the Web site on primary day,...

    COVER UP FOR THOSE WHO CARRIED OUT MASS MURDERBy Herbert RomersteinWhen the Nazis announced on April 12, 1943 that they had found the bodies of thousands of Polish officers who had been murdered by the Soviets in Katyn forest, most Americans did not believe them. The Nazis were known to commit mass murder and the extensive propaganda campaign in the United States in support of the Soviet Union had affected the thinking of most Americans. But the Poles knew the truth. They had been asking the Soviets about the missing men for almost two years. And some Americans knew the...

    Sen. Christopher Dodd said Thursday time has helped heal the hurt feelings with his Connecticut counterpart, Sen. Joe Lieberman, whose independent bid for re-election last year bruised their longtime friendship. After losing the 2006 Democratic primary to anti-war challenger Ned Lamont, Lieberman defied party leaders and ran as an independent in the general election to hang onto his seat. The move rankled Democrats who questioned the three-term senator's party loyalty. Lieberman has said his feelings were hurt by Dodd, a longtime friend who campaigned for Lamont in the general election and filmed a campaign commercial with him.

    Republicans like to view Democrats as the party of -- a lumping of leftists from George Soros to Howard Dean and the blogosphere. Although the fundraising and noise from this umbrella of progressives is noticeable, it has yet to post any real election victory in Nevada or anywhere else. Of course there was Ned Lamont's win in the Connecticut Senate primary two years ago in the effort to unseat Democratic incumbent Joe Lieberman. Yet it did not result in a Sen. Lamont. In New York Times reporter Matt Bai's book "The Argument: Billionaires, Bloggers and the Battle to Remake...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Last fall, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., came to Connecticut to help Democratic Senate candidate Ned Lamont in his bid to unseat veteran Sen. Joe Lieberman. Lamont is now returning the favor. He and the Massachusetts Democrat are teaming up to target Republican senators they say are blocking efforts to end the Iraq war. Lamont, a political novice whose anti-war views fueled his summer primary win over Lieberman, sent out a fundraising pitch on Friday to about 3 million people on Kerry’s national e-mail list. "Last year, Connecticut Democrats heard my call for an end to the war...

    Hi XXXX, Last year, Connecticut Democrats heard my call for an end to the war in Iraq and nominated me to be their U.S. Senate candidate. The pundits derided our campaign, but John Kerry had my back. We didn't win the general election, but the explosion of activist energy my campaign triggered helped change the debate nationally and led to Democrats winning a majority in both houses of Congress. John Kerry and the new Democratic-majority Senate you helped elect are fighting to end the war in Iraq. They have passed legislation to set a deadline for bringing our troops home....

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Joe Lieberman passed up an opportunity Sunday to endorse fellow Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd's bid for the Democratic nomination for president. Lieberman, I-Conn., won a fourth term in November as an independent after losing the Democratic nomination to Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont. Dodd backed Lieberman in the primary, but supported Lamont in the general election, even appearing with the Democratic nominee in TV ads. Asked on "Meet the Press" whether he endorses his Senate colleague's presidential campaign, Lieberman said he's avoiding presidential politics, at least for the time being. "I've worked closely with Chris Dodd for...

    Though Sen. Joe Lieberman expects to win a lot of Republican votes Tuesday, the Connecticut lawmaker said he won't feel especially beholden to the GOP if he is elected to a fourth term. "I'll owe everybody and that's the point," Lieberman said Monday as he pressed for final votes at a senior center in Meriden. Lieberman, whose Senate career was at risk just three months ago after he lost to anti-war challenger Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary, led Lamont by 12 percentage points in a statewide poll released Monday. Lieberman is running as an independent and has enjoyed support...

    Incumbent Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman holds a 50 - 38 percent likely voter lead over Democratic candidate Ned Lamont, with 8 percent for Republican Alan Schlesinger, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Five percent are undecided. This compares to a 49 - 37 percent Sen. Lieberman lead over Lamont, with 8 percent for Schlesinger in a November 1 poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh- pe-ack) University. In this latest survey, Lieberman leads Lamont 79 - 3 percent among likely Republican voters, with 16 percent for Schlesinger, and 52 - 35 - 7 percent among independent voters, while likely...

    ONLY three months ago Joe Lieberman’s long political career looked over.The Democrats’ 2000 vice-presidential nominee and three-term Connecticut senator had been dumped unceremoniously by voters in the party’s primary election, losing to the anti-war Ned Lamont because of his staunch support for President Bush over Iraq. The party’s establishment shunned him, rallying behind Mr Lamont as the Democrat candidate for Tuesday’s Connecticut Senate race. But suddenly, Democrats are being awfully nice to Mr Lieberman again. After his primary defeat, Mr Lieberman rejected Democrat calls to quit the race, and instead has run as an independent. Polls indicate that he will...

    The Lieberman campaign is feeling both feisty and confident. They can start checking names off their list of Democrats who turned on the three term incumbent after his August primary defeat. The Lieberman people took delight early last week in telling a story of John Kerry’s rebuff by Senate Democratic leaders when he lobbied them to lend some aid to Democrat aristocrat Ned Lamont’s flagging campaign. Lieberman’s campaign is delighted it still has friends in high places. They received added satisfaction when Lieberman got to pile on Kerry mid-week as the haughty Massachusetts neighbor limped off the campaign field. The...

    Maybe he should have gone to the debate after all. Instead of joining his two main opponents for the U.S. Senate - Democrat Ned Lamont and Republican Alan Schlesinger - at Quinnipiac University, Joe Lieberman opted for a relaxing night of campaigning, beer in hand, at Mayor Mike's in downtown Hartford. It was a short stop. It was also not very relaxing. Lieberman lasted maybe 15 minutes before he was heckled from the restaurant by young Lyndon LaRouche supporters, who kept popping up along the bar like gophers coming out of their holes.

    This article over at CNN is lamenting the imminent demise of Ned Lamont at the hands of Joe Lieberman. The Dems and media are afraid with all Joe’s GOP support in Connecticut that Republican House candidates will benefit. “Lieberman has the support of 73 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents, according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday.”“Lieberman’s coattails could carry the GOP incumbents to re-election and undercut Democratic hopes of majority control of the House.”
