Analyst declares winner in round one of Stamford U.S. Senate debate
(10/16/06) STAMFORD ? Three U.S. Senate candidates from the highly publicized Connecticut race wasted no time attacking each other during a debate Monday at the Stamford Marriott.
Democrat Ned Lamont, Independent candidate Joe Lieberman and Republican Alan Schlesinger made a point of targeting each other. Lieberman touted his experience, but was also criticized for his stance on Iraq. Lamont presented himself as the choice for people who want change.
However, Schlesinger may have given himself some political momentum with a strong showing. The Republican presented himself as the only moderate choice running against two liberals. Gary Rose, a political science professor at Sacred Heart University, pegged Schlesinger as the clear winner. Rose says Schlesinger was clear in presenting his ideas and connected with the audience.
