A bit less than half way, Lamont at 32%!!!! He's kicking ass in the small towns.
These are the latest numbers, according to our dear friend Scarce, who is following the convention on CT-N via the web I presume: 144

These are the blogs following the convention:

La Resistance

My F-Ing server is failing me. I'll post a delegate update in a minute.
I'm in the cheering section right now, and there are folks booing mayor John Fabrizi of Bridgeport.

I love this!

Lt. Governor Kevin Sullivan (D) steps in to prevent the antiwar protestors from being arrested. Thanks to DeanFan84 for that heads up, plus we got an important person (whose name I cannot remember) on film discussing how Democrats are the party of the protestors, the party of dissent, and that anyone who would have them arrested ought to question which party they're a part of.

The anti-war protestors, here to denounce Joe Lieberman.DSCF1357

I saw Senator Lieberman again, and began to follow him around with my video camera while Matt Stoller waited patiently to ask him a question. Funnily enough, every time I got a good shot of my Senator, some woman in red with an earpiece managed to stand directly in front of my camera. It's odd, almost as if I was predicting where she would be, and pointing my camcorder there. Hmm....

OK. We're Live. Lamont is being nominated right now. The stats will start running when the voting begins.
Running very late to convention. Still need to fix template to display delegate info properly. Don't blog and drive. Traffic sucks but I should make Hartford on time.
Later today this page will be updated with information about the convention. I've been promised that there will be wi-fi inside the convention center. Unless our oh-so-supportive (heavy sarcasm) state chair pulls a fast one, we will be live blogging from the floor.

I'm also creating a database to post the delegate counts in real time. Please visit starting at 6pm Eastern Time tonight, join the fun, and root for Ned Lamont.

I'll also post a roll of other blogs covering the convention live.

Go Ned. Get that 15%. We know you can do it!
