Lamont rallying support for Senate campaign

By Neil Vigdor Staff Writer February 6, 2006
On the wall of an office in Republican Greenwich hangs a sign: Ned Lamont for U.S. Senate. It might as well be a collector's item because it's the only one. But it's a start, says Lamont, a local businessman and former town selectman who fueled the Internet blogosphere last month when he revealed that he was considering a challenge of Sen. Joe Lieberman. Lamont is no Republican, however. That's a label he says is more fitting for his would-be opponent."Joe is clearly the most popular Democrat for all Republicans," said Lamont, who called the entrenched incumbent out of touch with state Democrats such as himself.

Businessman makes moves toward challenging Lieberman
February 7, 2006
HARTFORD, Conn. --Wealthy Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont took steps Monday toward becoming an official challenger to U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, naming a campaign manager and forming a candidate committee.
Lamont, 52, also began searching for a headquarters for a possible Democratic primary contest against Lieberman, a three-term incumbent and the 2000 Democratic nominee for vice president.
"It is a significant step forward," said Tom Swan, who is managing what he calls an exploratory campaign. "I am happy that Ned asked me to play a role within this campaign."
Lamont is president and founder of Lamont Digital Systems, a cable television company. He expressed interest last month in a possible challenge of Lieberman, who has been criticized by fellow Democrats for his support of the war in Iraq.
Lamont has also created a Web site and gone on an informal speaking tour. He has said he wants 1,000 volunteers to sign up on his Web site, http://www.nedlamont.com, before taking his exploratory campaign to the next level........................
