Unofficial Final Count: Lamont at 33% (this will probably drop a few points)

Ned Lamont is CRUSHING Joe Lieberman. Lieberman's expensive tent and lavish support and paid armies of staffers weren't enough. His side is incredibly dejected - their crowd of thunderstick cheerers, who cheered whenever a town went lopsided for Joe, have disbanded and are chatting. The Lieberman supporters aren't even dejected, they are bored.
Lieberman has $5 million of a smear and slime campaign coming. This is a big win. Time to saddle up.
Simsbury just said: "We asked for a visit from Lieberman in February and we're still waiting for a call back. Simsbury proudly casts 5 votes for Ned Lamont."
Update: Wow, Lamont's at 28%!
Final Count: 496 out of 1502 counted went for Ned. They are now asking for any changes.
