Friday News Round-Up
- Jane from Firedoglake has been on fire putting Lieberman and NARAL and Planned Parenthood on the defensive on Lieberman's vote for cloture on Alito, in light of South Dakota's recently passed abortion ban. Read both this post and this one from HuffPo.
- Ned will be speaking at Yale in front of the Yale College Democrats this Monday, Feb. 27th. Don't know if the event is open to the public.
- Live around Groton, Fairfield, or Torrington, and want to host a house party/meet and greet event with Ned in the next couple of weeks? Read this.
- Lieberman and Dodd sat down for an joint taped interview on Wednesday that will air on WTIC-61 this weekend.
- The Greenwich Citizen has a positive article up about Ned Lamont's appearance Thursday in front of the Greenwich DTC (entitled "Lamont, Darkhorse Candidate for Lieberman Seat, Magnetizes Dems"). Best quote is from Jeffrey Blanche:
"I have known him for 20 years and I have liked him for 20 years and I am ready to help," he told the Greenwich Citizen. "What will you do?" Blanche was asked. He answered: "Whatever Ned tells me needs done, I'll do." Folks huddled around Lamont seemed of a like mind. Lamont appears to exude charisma.
