Joe drops out of MoveOn.org primary
Suprise, suprise! Look who just dropped out of the MoveOn.org primary. I can hear him now...whaa, MoveOn.org is too liberal, whaa!
After initially agreeing, Senator Lieberman has declined our invitation to participate in the MoveOn.org Political Action online primary for U.S. Senate in Connecticut.Awww, what's wrong? Can't stand up to the Lamont challenge?
We invited both candidates to send an e-mail to MoveOn members in Connecticut as part of our endorsement process. When we spoke last Thursday, the Lieberman campaign agreed to submit an e-mail from the Senator or a surrogate as they did during our 2004 online presidential primary. We received notice after 5:00 PM last night that they would not submit an e-mail to MoveOn members for the primary.
The online primary will go forward. We want our members to have the opportunity to hear a case for endorsement from both the Lieberman and Lamont camps, and we hope to provide a stand-in for the senator.
