Howard Dean Can't Openly Support Lamont Over Lieberman, But His Brother Can
Howard Dean is chair of the Democratic National Committee, which unlike the non-party-affiliated Democratic Leadership Council and the party-affiliated but DLC-influenced Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, does not pick favorites in Democratic primary races. So, appropriately, Dean is remaining mum on the Lamont v. Lieberman primary race in Connecticut.
But Dean's brother James heads Democracy For America, the progressive group that emerged from the remnants of Dean's 2004 Presidential-bid grassroots organization, Dean For America. And James Dean has come out in support of Ned Lamont.
