Lamont Keeps Writing Those Checks

If you ever needed confirmation that the DSCC has completely abandoned Ned Lamont - their chosen candidate - in his Senate bid, you need only look to how the Greenwich millionaire finances his campaign. For all intents and purposes, it's a self-funded effort. The party apparatus that is tasked with supporting the election efforts of its designated Senate candidates has clearly "cut and run" from CT.

The Hartford Courant reports the tally:

Ned Lamont donated another $2 million Monday to his U.S. Senate campaign, bringing his personal investment to $4.5 million this month.

His personal total for the campaign is now nearly $11 million.

His main rival, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, had raised nearly $15 million as of Sept. 30, the close of the last reporting period.

$4.5 million this month works out to over $264,000 per day.

Joe Lieberman, a man without a party, can raise $15 million but Ned Lamont - like a panicky buyer on eBay who keeps clicking the "bid now" button as the clock ticks down - keeps tapping into his bank account to keep his campaign afloat.

Calling Chuck Schumer...Schumer? Sen. Schumer?
