Anti-War Candidate - Ned Lamont

Although the Democratic base is strongly against the war in Iraq, the Democratic "leadership" is not getting the message.

Fact is, Joe Lieberman is the most visible, most pro-war Democrat with a legitimate primary challenger up for reelection this year. Hillary is pro-war, but I don't think her primary challenger, Jonathan Tasini, is a real threat. Nancy Pelosi is not high profile enough and I am not even sure if she has a primary challenger.

Looking at the grass roots web site actblue, we see that Ned Lamont is running against Joe Leiberman in the primary and has already raised $129K (now is it up to 131K!).

This website only documents one source of funding, so one hundred and twenty eight thousand (128K) is impressive.

One million will give you a decent crack at the seat.

I have added a link at the side to make a contribution.

I strongly encourage people to make a contribution to Ned's campaign. The average contribution is a little more than $50 so that gives you some idea of how little it will take to make a difference.

The key is to give something. Even $10 will make a difference.

I listen to progressive radio almost everyday and Lieberman is very unpopular with the Democratic base. He could be unseated.

It is cool to watch the number increase in real time.
