Lamont and Lieberman Go Toe to Toe in Debate
Posted on Jul 7, 2006
Conn. businessman Ned Lamont, who in the polls is closing in fast on Joe Lieberman, forced the three-term senator in a debate Thursday night to defend his strong support for President Bush over the Iraq war, in addition to charging that Lieberman has made his bed in Congress with lobbyists and special interest groups.
A few elbows were thrown.
