One year ago today, Ned Lamont defeated a three-term senator on the Democratic ticket. For a day, Lamont HQ was the center of the American political universe.
It was an amazing place to be!
UPDATE! Spazeboy reminded me about the Primary Day coverage on this blog. Kirby and I worked in tandem to frequently update the blog during the entire day, and when websites around the world were getting jammed up from excessive traffic, we somehow managed to stay up. Check out the archives for August 2006, or to see the entire day's reportage in chronological order, visit my Primary Day blog (no comments, but the posts tell the story).
Here's my videos from the day:
CT Keith saved all his signs from the beginning of the push to oust Lieberman, and Tim Tagaris shows off his juggling skills.
A report from Lamont HQ, along with a Matt Browner-Hamlin interview.
Tim Tagaris answered Gerstein's allegations that the Joe website was hacked; taped moments before, the room burst into applause when the segment ended. Check out my busted laptop!
Ah, victory, there is nothing sweeter!
Even though we didn't win in November, the political status quo was changed forever due in large part to Ned Lamont's heroic campaign.
And we'll always admire you for it, Ned!
