The NRSC has confirmed that it’s backing Lieberman:
“This morning, a source at the National Republican Senatorial Committee confirmed in a phone interview that the party will not help Schlesinger or any other potential Republican candidate in Connecticut, and it now favors a Lieberman victory in November."
Adam Schlesinger is running on the Republican ticket. The NRSC, perhaps realizing its blunder, called back and tried to back off its original statement:
"An NRSC spokesman just called to make clear the distinction between actively and openly supporting Lieberman, which they're not doing, and merely opting not to support a Republican in Connecticut."
Democrats should take a cue from Republicans, who flood Green candidates with money so that they can get on the ballot and draw votes from Dems. They should shower Schlesinger with campaign contributions (after donating as much as they’re allowed to Ned Lamont.)
