Is Lowell Weicker back?
Posted by Peter W. Schramm
Former CT Gov. Lowell Weicker "criticized Senator Joseph I. Lieberman’s continued support of the war in Iraq and said that if no candidate challenged the senator on the issue in the 2006 election, he would consider running." I sent money to Liberman in 1988 when he ran against Sen. Weicker who then called himself a Republican; I may have to do it again. Weicker is not one of my favorite politicians.

As a native Connectican, and as someone who is generally critical of GOP ducking of the serious issues on taxes, I think that Weicker is a great candidate. It took guts to institute the income tax in CT in the mid-1990s, but as far as I understand it, the states finances are the better for it.
