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...

Lamont 56.52% 19,591
Lieberman 43.48% 15,072

Bye, bye Joe

Goodbye you ass, goodbye

There goes Connecticut
With someone new
Ned sure looks happy

Goodbye to tyranny

The world is watching

Over a FireDogLake a commenter from Canada had this to say...it gave me chills...

Every single person who worked hard for Ned Lamont should take particular pride in the fact that hardly a single CT website is functioning well tonight.

They are, each one, overwhelmed with traffic…and it isn’t merely from CT.

The world is watching, hanging on the results as precinct totals dribble in. It has been a long time since America had a political tale this optimistic, a democratic parable this enlightening, or a politician this inspiring.

It seems there’s life in old Liberty yet.

Win or lose, you have changed the rules. Congratulations.

It's holding pretty steady

If Lamont wins, there'll be a party like the blogosphere's never seen.

If a people-powered movement boosted this successful progressive Democrat into office, candidates and potential candidates will realize that the sky's the limit if you work in the interests of the people.

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

...and come to think of it

As Lamont's lead shrinks, I wondered what if Lieberman wins.

And I realized it's almost the same response. There's an energy to be harnessed, and it would have come within a whisker of dethroning a man widely considered to hold one of the safest seats in Congress.

We've got 92 days to whip that energy up into a Kisselly, Shulerly frothy lather.

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

no way...

I think we've reached a tipping point in this election. If we lose expect to see people going offline and maybe actually hitting the pavement.

thousands of people were hitting the pavement

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.

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?

Some concession speech...

http://www.courant.com/news/politics/hc-sen-race-0808,0,6578875.story?co...

Lieberman told supporters that he'd called Lamont to congratulate him; then he took a few swipes at his rival.

"Of course I am disappointed by the results, but I am not discouraged," Lieberman said..

"The old politics of partisan polarization won today," Lieberman said. "For the sake of our state, our country and my party, I cannot and will not let that result stand."

"Tomorrow morning our campaign will file the necessary petitions … so that we can continue this campaign for a new politics of unity and purpose."

Lieberman spokeswoman Marion Steinfels said that lawyer Daniel Papermaster will file the senator's petitions for an independent run at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Secretary of the State's office in Hartford.

Ever get the feeling this is all about Joe? He doesn't give a crap about his party. He is gonna run as an indy, and now we get to see 3 more months of coverage of this one race. 3 more months of netroots $$ flowing to Connecticut to Lamont instead of to great candidates all across the country, including our own Larry Kissell, Heath Shuler, and Brad Miller.

Joe is gonna stand in the way of the Democratic tidal wave - damn him.
