Back online (sort of)
You would think that my hotel (Circus Circus) in Las Vegas would be hooked up for wireless internet access but unfortunately this is not the case. I'm sorry for the delay but it's been a real pain in the ass hooking up here and paying 10.00 per internet session sucks. My blogging will be limited until I can get back in the area (Monday night)
Here's the latest on where some of our Democratic officials stand on supporting the Democratic nominee for Senate.
2nd district Congressional nominee Joe Courtney is on board.
Joe Courtney, the Democratic challenger for Congress in the 2nd District, said he will work in November for the Democratic ticket.
Also on board is 5th Congressional nominee Chris Murphy. In a telephone call on Friday, Murphy's manager Sarah Merriam confirmed that Murphy will strongly support whoever is the Democratic nominee for Senate.
Now, for the people who have yet to answer.
A phone call was placed to Lt. Governor Kevin Sullivan's office on Friday and I talked to his staff but I'm still waiting for a reply on whether or not Sullivan will support the Democratic nominee.
Also, I contacted Susan Bysiewicz office and I'm still waiting for a response.
It's important to know where your Democratic leaders in Connecticut stand on supporting the winner of the primary. If Joe bolts, how many others will go with him? How many support Lieberman bolting the party? Shouldn't we know the answers to these questions?
Check out a full list of all the leading Democratic officials in Connecticut by clicking here. Call or email and ask them in light of Joe Lieberman's not ruling out running as an independent, if they'll support the Democratic nominee for Senate.
I've completed a new section of this blog which will keep track of whick Dems are supporting the Democratic nominee and which ones are not. I'll have the new section posted as soon as I'm back in town.
Hold your officials accountable.
UPDATE: Susan Bysiewicz is on board. From her office.
A Statement from Susan Bysiewicz on the race for U.S. Senate:
"As the person whose office runs the primaries in Connecticut, it is my policy not to endorse any particular candidate running in a Democratic primary. I will, however, be supporting the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in the November elections."
