JUST POSTED ON TAP: THE ANTI-JOE. No wonder Joe Liebermanseemstesty these days -- the three-term senator faces his most serious primary challenge since taking office. Marie Cocco, in the latest issue of the Prospect, looks at the man who would be senator, Ned Lamont, and his potential path to victory.
On Friday March 10, the Prospect hosted the second in its series bringing together elected officials and a select group of journalists. The guest was Congressman Sherrod Brown, a Democrat who represents Ohio's 13th district, which includes suburban Cleveland and Akron. Brown is a candidate for U.S. Senate this year, running against Republican incumbent Mike DeWine. A recording of the event is available here.
