    Hours after Republican Bob Stefanowski conceded the governor's’ race to Ned Lamont on Wednesday, talk at Bill and Sam’s Diner in Wolcott turned to sunny Florida. Again and again during the campaign, Stefanowski warned that without a Republican governor people would continue to flee to states like Florida, with low taxes and balanced budgets. Now, over plates of pancakes and bacon at this landmark diner, retirees and workers alike rued Stefanowski’s loss and mulled plans to get out.

    Republican Bob Stefanowski has inched ahead of Democrat Ned Lamont by 2.4 percent in the governor’s race, which remains a statistical tie heading into the final weekend before Election Day, the latest Hearst Connecticut Media Group/Sacred Heart University Poll finds. The poll, released Thursday afternoon, shows that Stefanowski is now up 40 percent to 37.6 percent, with unaffiliated candidate Oz Griebel of Hartford at 9 percent. Just over 12 percent of those surveyed remain undecided. Stefanowski gained a 5.8 percent point swing over two weeks, the poll finds.

    Joe Lieberman has long been many Republicans favorite Democrat. Not because he’s particularly conservative but because he’s an honest, well-meaning politician… and there aren’t many of those around anymore. Lieberman is in the news again now because he’s penned an op-ed criticizing his party’s shift to the left. Lieberman argues that if Democratic-Socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez truly are the future of the Democrat Party, then the Democrat Party doesn’t have a very bright future ahead. Really the point was, what is the Democratic party going to be? I am still a Democrat and when I see somebody that really says...
  • CT Republicans nominate Jodi Rell for Governor; Alan Schlesinger endorsed for U.S. Senate run

    The GOP, with 1,639 accredited delegates, adopted a pre-arranged slate of running mates for Rell, whom they hope will be able to take advantage of her soaring popularity in November. They never had a roll call vote, unlike Democrats in Hartford, who battled all afternoon over their gubernatorial candidates. Alan Schlesinger of Woodbridge, a former Derby mayor and state representative, won the GOP nomination to run for U.S. Senate on a voice vote after Rell's speech emptied the gym. Paul Streitz, a Darien businessman, dropped his bid for the nomination on an immigration-reform platform, but was given platform time in...

    HARTFORD -- A former mayor of the state's smallest city is thinking big and aiming high. Alan Schlesinger, a former two-term mayor of Derby and six-term state representative, announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate on Monday. Schlesinger is running for the seat Democrat Joseph I. Lieberman has held for 18 years. He is not the only Republican interested in the party's nomination. Schlesinger's announcement Monday coincided with the filing deadline for federal income taxes in Connecticut. "What better day to announce than on 'Tax Day' because I am really concerned our hard-earned tax dollars are...

    Hi people. Its been a while since I posted, but I feel the man who REALLY deserves the credit for making Obama and the other Democrats look like fools is not getting the credit he deserves - and that is Joe Lieberman. As some of you may remember, Senator Lieberman would not support the "Public Option", which was a fairly-cleverly designed plan to have a government-run policy show up when you went to the Obamacare website. The public option, of course, would be priced at the level the government chooses, and would not have to be accountable to anyone as...

    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...

    ( Four U.S. senators, including White House hopefuls John McCain, a Republican from Arizona, and Joe Lieberman, an Independent from Connecticut, vowed during a visit to Israel Sunday that Congress would not approve cutting loan guarantees to the Jewish State. They were reacting to U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell, who proposed the option during an interview with American television journalist Charlie Rose. Mitchell later denied that he made a threat or an “implied threat" although a transcript of the interview states, “Under American law, the United States can withhold support on loan guarantees to Israel.

    Sen. Joseph Lieberman termed Iran's training of Iraqi insurgents "an act of war" in a Florida appearance Wednesday evening on behalf of Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign. The independent Democrat from Connecticut spoke at length about the threats facing both the state of Israel and the United States during a town hall meeting at the Palm Beach Synagogue in South Florida, describing McCain as ready to face global dangers as commander-in-chief from his first day in office. Lieberman said that by loosing its elite Kuds revolutionary force to train extremists to fight in Iraq, the Iranian regime has "been responsible...

    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...

    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...

    Trailing in the polls, Democrat Ned Lamont called the Iraq conflict Sen. Joe Lieberman's "war of choice" and compared his rival to former Republican President Nixon. Putting a fresh focus on the issue that powered him to victory in August's Democratic primary, Lamont mentioned Vietnam in criticizing Lieberman, who is running as an independent in his re-election bid. "Iraq is Joe's war of choice, and he's been its strongest and staunchest supporter every step of the way," Lamont said in a speech at the University of Hartford. "And in the greatest act of audacity of all, he is now asking...

    That’s the word on the street, although the reality-based community has been known to confuse electoral reality with wishful thinking. Tinti’s not worried and says Connecticut Republicans realize that a vote for Schlesinger is a vote for Lamont. Just like, er, Democrats “knew” that a vote for Nader was a vote for Bush in 2000. Of course, if we acted like Democrats we wouldn’t have two chambers to lose.HuffPo’s already working on the empty suit’s concession speech. Rational response to the polls? Reflex reaction of a party prone to defeatism and used to losing? Or just getting a jump on...

    Alan Schlesinger just might make the U.S. Senate race in Connecticut competitive and lively after all. -snip- Mr. Schlesinger, the state convention-blessed Republican nominee, was at a lowly 4 percent, having been disowned by many leaders and most of the rank and file of his own party. The Senate campaign had lost its zip. At the Monday debate in Stamford, however, Mr. Schlesinger exhibited a nothing-left-to-lose flair in attacking Mr. Lieberman, mainly, and Mr. Lamont. His performance could stir the embers of this campaign and just might wake up more than a few Republican voters. The GOP standard-bearer has been...

    Democratic Senate candidate Ned Lamont is having trouble moving from the small stage of a primary campaign with its appeal to partisans to the main stage of the general election, which requires the attention of the state's 2.1 million voters. Since the Aug. 8 primary, Lamont has done little more than repeat his opposition to the war in Iraq and carp about Sen. Joseph Lieberman's independent bid for a fourth term. Part of the problem in getting to know more about Lamont is that he has no record in a public office that required him to take stands on issues....

    FAIRFIELD -- Using apocalyptic imagery of civilization lost, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman blamed politics Friday for undermining the war on terror and leaving the U.S. vulnerable to "barbarians at our gates." The U.S. faces a patient and ruthless enemy in Islamic extremists, an enemy that "threatens not just America, but all of civilization," Lieberman said in a national security speech at Fairfield University. "We remain too divided as a nation, and in Washington, spend too much time fighting each other rather than coming together to make our country safer," Lieberman said. "At stake is the kind of world we will...
