Howard Dean will support eventual CT Democratic Nominee
Breaking news from MyDD
I was at an American Prospect breakfast with Howard Dean, and he said among other things that the DNC won't be involved in the Connecticut primary. However, he went out of his way to single out Joe Lieberman for being an 'outlier' on national security, and he did say that the DNC will support the eventual Democratic nominee. You hear what I'm saying? If Joe goes Indy, he's losing major backing.Dean gives a simple answer to a simple question. Too bad we can't get a straight answer like this out of our Democratic officials here in Connecticut.
I say again, if Joe is threatening to leave the Democratic party if there is a primary (or if he loses the primary), why should any Democratic candidate offer their support to him? You would NEVER hear a Republican make a simular claim (i.e. McCain) so why should Joe be allowed to get off the hook?
UPDATE: Lamontblog ups the ante.
What is any Democrat - much less the state and national leadership - doing supporting a candidate who by his own admission may may take the money and run to the other side of the aisle before November?
Contact Dodd, DiNardo, and the DSCC. Tell them you won't support them if they continue to support a candidate who might cut and run from the party:
