READING LIST:

The Connecticut Mirror: Lamont paints himself into a fiscal corner by ruling out solutions to deficit - "During an interview Tuesday, Lamont repeated his belief that using one-time reserves to cover recurring costs in the state budget is the easy way out. 'It takes all of the pressure off of the stakeholders to fix the structural deficit,' he said."

Hartford Courant: Joe Biden Coming To Connecticut To Campaign For Ned Lamont - "'Ned Lamont has dedicated his life to making sure middle-class families have a fighting chance to get ahead and stay ahead,' Biden said earlier this month when he endorsed Lamont. 'He's a person of character and integrity, who is in the public arena to make a positive difference.'"
