Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    Ned Lamont Announces Run for CT Gov

    This came from Ned Lamont:

    I wanted you to be one of the first to know that, this afternoon, I will be filing papers to establish a committee to explore a potential candidacy for Governor of Connecticut.

    Since our 2006 campaign for Senate, I have continued to meet with citizens across our state -- as co-chairman of the Obama campaign in Connecticut, founder of a state policy institute at Central Connecticut State University, and as an outspoken advocate for health care reform. I have been constantly reminded during these conversations that Connecticut is not living up to its potential and that too many of our families are still being left behind.

    Whether it has been health care and the economy, losing jobs, young people leaving the state, or the never-ending budget crisis, we have all seen our state head in the wrong direction.

    Simply put, Connecticut's current Chief Executive is not getting the job done.

    Over the next few weeks, I look forward to continuing these conversations with voters across the state. And I also look forward to hearing from all of you.

    I hope to have your support as we start this new chapter together.

    Ned Lamont defeated Joe Lieberman in the Democratic Primary in Connecticut. I noticed that Lamont ran an amazing campaign in that primary. Problem was that the great organization in the primary slumped before the general election where Lieberman ran as an independent. Lamont is good. I hope he has learned that you have to have the money and grassroots organization to go all the way, not just through the primary.
