Lamont to announce candidacy for Lieberman's Senate seat
March 8, 2006
HARTFORD, Conn. --Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont will formally announce next week that he will challenge U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman in the August Democratic primary, his campaign said Wednesday.
Lamont, 52, who has already taken steps toward becoming an official challenger to the three-term incumbent, will make the announcement Monday at the Old State House in Hartford.
The founder and president of cable television company Lamont Digital Systems and former newspaper editor said he is dissatisfied with a number of issues, including the war in Iraq, access to affordable health care and economic policies that provide education and good jobs.
"This president plays on our fears, not our hopes," Lamont said in a written statement. "In too many ways our country is going off course. And Connecticut's Sen. Lieberman is doing nothing to stop it -- and is in fact supporting many of the president's misguided policies."
Lieberman has come under fire from members of his own party for his support of the war in Iraq.........
