Question for our local Democratic officials and candidates
(due to recent events, I've decided to bump this post to the top)
In light of Joe Lieberman planning to jump ship and run as a Independent against Ned Lamont, I think it's appropriate ask our Democratic local officials and candidates this simple (and easy) question.
"Will you support the Democratic candidate for Senate in November?"
Don't you think it's time to get our officials on record stating whether they'll support the Democratic candidate for Senate? We'll I do and I know of many others who feel the same way so we're going to do somehting about it.
Help me get our Democratic officials on record. Call your local officials, Gubernatorial and Congressional candidates and find out where they stand on this important issue. Send me an email (or drop the response in the comment section of this post) and I'll compile a list of officials and candidates who are sticking on with the Democratic candidate, ones who are jumping ship with Lieberman, and the ones who are undecided (or on the fence).
If Joe's bolting, don't you think it's important to know which Democrats are bolting the party with him?
Here's a partial list. A more comprehensive list by clicking here (will be updated throughout the day).
I'll keep you updated with the responses as I get the results so come back and check often.
