Here’s Ned Lamont. Looks a bit different from 2006. 🙂

Mags I hope will give us the low down on the races in CT.

First results expected around 8:25 ET.

Very early, but Lamont looking good re: the primary. Here’s with just 3% in:

(Needless to say, Ganim is a crook, and most ppl know that by now.)

Mags, what’s the story on Ganim?

Ganim is ethically-challenged. Am I allowed to say that?

Here’s a taste of the ex-mayor of Bridgeport who did time for 7 years, came out of prison and got re-elected in 2015…somehow.

First elected mayor in 1991, Ganim ran the city until 2003, when he was convicted of 16 counts of racketeering, extortion and bribery — crimes that allowed him a taste of a millionaire’s lifestyle: fancy meals, custom-made shirts, cases of fine wine, improvements to Ganim’s house and other luxuries.

As reported in 2001, Ganim received a $250,000 loan from his father to pay for his legal defense. Then, following the mayor’s conviction, the elder Ganim bought his son’s Bridgeport home for $302,500 and quickly sold it for $605,000.

There are more sordid details here.

Now that’s a wrap! Thanks for the info, Mags!

Hey TPW Birdies. Vetwife has got a diary up right now at TOP. She is raising holy h3ll over all the crap and insults we progressive Floridians endure. You all get over there and give her a T and R!1 She is super good people!!

I went there, to DK, for you, a good diary, am glad that you, and your fellow Floridians, were able to get some of that out of your system. It’s really unfair how many pre-conceived ideas you have to deal with.

Some of the hardest-working progs I see on twitter are out of Florida. There’s obviously a ton of corruption there! So, it’s very challenging.

Okay, where is wi60? We need a boots-on-the-ground report from WI. T and R, humphrey!!!!

magsview

Hang in there, polls there don’t close til 9pm our time?

I wonder if wi60 has any idea of the anticipation here about his thoughts on today’s going on? Been seeing tons of references!

Hello TPW land, late day at work and just got back from voting, decent turnout in my ward a little above average, going to scour the local papers for any turnout info and get on a web site to track the results. I post some more info in a little bit–polls close 8pm CDT

There you are! Am just catching up & just saw you. Many mentions of hoping that you’d pipe in. (fistbump)

orlbucfan

Upraised fist–Hey wi60–upraised fist! Vetwife over at TOP wrote an angry, eloquent diary blasting the insults thrown at Floridians. I added a lot of supportive commentary. You ought to see all the comments I’m getting. LOL. Rooting for longshot Cathy Meyers. Scott Walker needs to be history just like Sick Rott.

Benny

I was there to T & R comments.

Humphrey gets ponies too!

no kidding!!!!!!
