It's Primary Day: Lamont v. Lieberman
Today voters go to the polls in the most-watched race of the primary season. Ned Lamont's steady gain on Lieberman has been fueled by increasing anti-war sentiment in Connecticut. A poll last week showed Lamont beating Lieberman 54-41 percent. The latest poll shows Lamont holding a 6 point lead.
Amy Goodman discusses the wider implications of the primary with, Hartford Courant columinst and former Connecticut state senator, Bill Curry.
Curry sums up the primary by saying this:
"For all mainstream Democrats watching what's happening to Lieberamn, it's like a herd of gazelles seeing one be cut down from the herd by the loins. Even should the senator escape with his political life, they've watched this primary. I think it's the most important primary since Gene McCarthy took on Lyndon Johnson in New Hampshire in 1968 over the Vietnam war."Video courtesy of DemocracyNow!.
