"Support The Nominee Or Get Out"

Irony: a Democratic town chair resigns from his position in the party to support a "Democratic" candidate who won't resign from his (from The Politicker):

Lieberman will also get Bernie McLoughlin, Democratic Town Chairman of North Haven (which Lamont carried) who stepped down yesterday in a show of solidarity with the senator.

McLoughlin said that since he could not in good conscience support the Democratic nominee, it would be inappropriate to stay on as his town's Democratic chair.

"The Democratic apparatus is supposed to support the nominee of the party. Once that is concluded, you have an obligation as a leader of that party to support the nominee or get out," said McLoughlin, who chose to get out.

Joe Lieberman also has an obligation to either support Ned Lamont (D-CT) or "get out."
