War Stance Could Mean a Primary Battle for Lieberman
Businessman Ned Lamont emerges as a possible protest candidate for the Senate.By Ronald BrownsteinTimes Staff WriterJanuary 27, 2006WASHINGTON — Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, who rose to national prominence as the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee, appears likely to face a serious primary challenge this year that could measure the depth of his party's discontent over the Iraq war. Ned Lamont, a businessman and war critic, last week began publicly seeking support for a run against Lieberman in the state's August nominating contest. Lamont is attracting interest largely because of Democratic grumbling — in Connecticut and nationally — about Lieberman's unflinching support of President Bush's policies in Iraq. "The indications I have is that a primary would be good for the party and very doable," said Lamont, 52, who founded a cable television company.Lieberman, 63, said he was prepared for a fight. "I am totally energized by this," he said. "I'm proud of my record and I'm ready to defend it.".............
