Lieberman sinking fast ...
All eyes are on the Connecticut Democratic primary as Sen. Joe Lieberman, the party's 2000 vice presidential nominee, is going down to defeat.
Both the Drudge Report and Daily Kos are reporting challenger business Ned Lamont getting 52 percent and a difference of about 6,000 votes, with 74 percent of the votes tallied. This means, it is pretty close to over at this point. Traditionally, Democratic primaries get around 25 percent turnout. Today, as many as 50 percent of registered Democrats are expected to vote.
Lieberman has been threatening to run as an independent and has told aides and media reps that he will not accept defeat.
