2006 changed everything for Connecticut senate races. Before then, we had real snoozers that ended up in blowouts for Joe Lieberman and Chris Dodd, with wreckage at the side of the road named Brooks Johnson and Philip Giordano, among others.
Six years ago, businessman Ned Lamont made national headlines when he defeated Lieberman in the Democratic primary. It was a tremendous downfall for Lieberman, who only six years earlier was the Democrats’ choice for vice-president.
After the primary though, the race turned in Lieberman’s favor, and in the closing weeks of the campaign he was ahead in the polls. This Sunday on Face the State, our flashback takes us back to October 30, 2006 when Lieberman and Lamont were campaigning around the clock.
You can watch the entire flashback reported by Susan Raff this Sunday at 11 AM on Face the State, only on WFSB Channel 3.
