Disclosure: I worked for the Lamont campaign doing web design and production and some writing for the official blog (from 9/5/06 to 11/07/06).

Two Things

1. Ned Lamont has challenged Joe Lieberman to a spending cap. Lieberman has refused. Lieberman has raised millions more dollars than Lamont, and has millions more in the bank than he does. Anytime you hear Joe claim poverty, or whine that he is running against some self-funding behemoth of a campaign, please realize that he is talking out of his ass.

2. No one - certainly not Ned Lamont - is trying to "force" Joe Lieberman out of the party. Ned has repeatedly challenged Joe to stay in the party and support the primary winner (that's what members of parties do, Joe). Lamont supporters want Joe to remain a Democrat. We just don't want him in the senate anymore. Please understand the difference.
Local Dem town chairs have mixed reactions to Lieberman's indie bid. Some wear "step on me" t-shirts and some don't. Ask yours.
