The Washington Prognosis: Joe is looking good

posted on October 19th

We know that we still have a tough fight ahead of us for the last 19 days of the campaign. But we take some comfort from knowing that more and more national political observers are saying Ned’s paté may be cooked.

Today’s prognosis comes from the Washington Times, which ran a story under the headline, “Lieberman seen set to win re-election.”

Three weeks before Election Day all indications are that Sen. Joe Lieberman is headed for re-election after stumbling in his party's primary over the summer.
The Connecticut Democrat, who is running as an independent, leads Democratic nominee Ned Lamont in the polls, has raised more campaign money, and has won a number of endorsements from both parties.

A University of Connecticut poll released last week shows Mr. Lieberman leading Mr. Lamont 46 percent to 39 percent, with 12 percent of poll respondents saying they remain undecided. Republican Alan Schlesinger received just 3 percent in the poll.

The Lieberman campaign also has a fundraising edge, with campaign finance reports showing Mr. Lieberman has raised $14.8 million, compared with $9 million for Mr. Lamont. Mr. Lamont has spent $11 million of his personal fortune on the race, including a $2 million donation made last week.

What was all that whining about Lamont's fund when obviously millionaire Joe LIE-man is literally being funded by all kinds of interest groups/lobby? So who do Joe owes more to?

More evidence of Joe LIE-man's whoring, if you must ask me.
