The Fix Heads Home to Connecticut
Not even vacation could keep this Connecticut native from heading home to observe first-hand tomorrow's Democratic primary between Sen. Joe Lieberman and wealthy businessman Ned Lamont.
This race is not only the biggest thing to hit Connecticut politics since, well, forever, but it also has major national implications about how the war in Iraq is viewed by Democratic base voters.
The Post's Dan Balz has been in Connecticut for much of the last week, filing dispatches about the race. Be sure to read his Sunday piece about the implications of a Lieberman loss for Democrats nationally, and his story in today's paper on Lieberman's last-minute attempt to deal with the Iraq issue.
Lamont is still the favorite tomorrow, but a new Quinnipiac poll out today shows that Lieberman has made inroads into what was once a double-digit margin. Lamont leads 51 percent to 46 percent among likely Democratic primary voters.
Make sure to check this space frequently over the next two days for dispatches from Connecticut. Meanwhile, keep the conversation going in the comments section below.
