West Hartford loves Lieberman

Poking around on opensecrets.org to see which politicians got cash in West Hartford during last year’s race, I was not surprised to find Joe Lieberman cleaned Ned Lamont’s clock here.

Based solely on the list of top donors in each West Hartford zip code, Lieberman got $298K while Lamont collected merely $11K.

Chris Dodd raked in $96K.

Democratic congressional winners Chris Murphy and Joe Courtney did well here. Murphy got $47K while Courtney hauled in $82K.

John Larson, our own congressman, pocketed $40K here, which is $40K more than he needed.

Nancy Johnson, who lost to Murphy, beat out every other Republican. She took in $50K from West Hartford.

The presidential candidates trailed all of them in fund-raising here.
