Connecticut Senate Results

8:37pm
I won't put this on the front page, but I do have the urge to share. With 4% of the precincts reporting in...

Lamont 60% 6,814
Lieberman 40% 4,586

8:45pm
This is cracking me up. Almost every site covering this is stalling because of the high traffic - even sites used to the traffic. It doesn't bode well for information exchange in November. Methinks some folks will need to pay for extra bandwidth come fall.

More below the fold...

Hey.

I'm looking at swords.

:/

I mean words.

Unless we are waiting on Joe's Home District its over

Unless we are waiting for his home district to report he is not going to make it...

He is out of runway - close race but he appears to have lost.

I may be one of the few but I am dissappointed in the Democratic Party - We go all anti war over these results we lose 2008 before it begins

I was around for McGovern - A Totally humiliating defeat

I wish the followers would lead... With a voice so strong in would knock me to my knees...

This isn't about anti-war.

This is about anti-incompetence, corruption, ignorance and arrogance. The world can't wait for us to get our shit together and set things right. Slamming Bush in the teeth is a good first step.

80% reporting

Lamont's still holding the same lead

81% of vote

Lamont 52.7% Lieberman 48.3%, think Joemomentum can catch up at this point?

nope

I think now it is a matter of percentages.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.
-me

Don't know why

I find that picture so damn funny, but I sure do. Must be all the tension in the Tubes tonight.

No...snip the blue one you idiot...

the red one will make you go booooom

The gap widens again

I'm ready to call this, but need at least one more refresh. I've seen it happen before, but the precincts out would have to be heavily , heavily Lieberman...you know...the way they do in Texas (heh)

I think it's a done deal too.

The margin in actual votes is holding tight around 10,000. Wouldn't be surprised to see JoeMo call for a recount.

What the scoop on absentee ballots? I heard earlier that Lamont kicked butt there, but haven't been able to find the link.

Not enough Votes left to Catch him

Joe has lost - there are not enough votes left for him to catch Lamont.

A message to CT Dems -- You had your protest vote - Now shut up and vote in Joe as an Independent... We all know you were planning on voting for him in the fall anyways.

Are you happy now? The GOP thanks you!

I wish the followers would lead... With a voice so strong in would knock me to my knees...

It's not a protest vote, party pooper

It's choosing a different course. Lieberman's appeasement tactics have given the Republicans a "bipartisan" free ride for 6 long years.

I think Joe ought to respect the will of his party. But he's too power mad for that.

Scrutiny Hooligans - http://www.scrutinyhooligans.us

The Lamont Protest Voters are done - they will vote Joe now

We all know many of the Primary Voters who supported Lamont have no intention of voting for Lamont in the Fall - and if they want to they still can can - but many know that would be stupid and they have no intention of wasting a vote when it counts...

The vast majority had the protest vote and now plan to return to practical matters and send Joe back to DC.

He has been a fantastic Democrat and terrific for the state. He will be reelected as an Independent.

I wish the followers would lead... With a voice so strong in would knock me to my knees...

"We all know many . . . "

How many is "many?" You seem to know a lot more about this than anyone else I've run into. Where do you get your numbers?

My router is feeling better, but my AC died today. Argh. Watching these returns is too much. My nerves is all a twitter!

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."
