Backpost: Lieberman Endorsements

Backpost: 7/29/06. 11:08 PM. This was sent to the guest-moderator at TPM, named DK. The whole thing is intact from back them. As such, I'm keeping this post in its original date; 4/15/08.

I too find the NYTimes endorsement of Lieberman significant. I decided to
check out, though, the Connecticut newspapers.

First the "Hartford Courant", the largest CT daily, endorses Lieberman. So does the "Connecticut Post" (Bridgeport)

The Stamford Advocate says they will provide endorsements, but just not yet...

Most of CT newspapers don't seem to have specific websites (its all very
strange) and all link to the Courant piece from the AP.

The two Democratic House members (Rosa DeLauro and John B. Larson) endorse Lieberman as well.

You can see Lieberman's endorsement page to confirm these.

I think this issue holds an important angle. For the non-Connecticut crowd,
the New York Times is huge. For Connecticut, especially the poor part, the
local newspapers may carry more sway.
