Democrats in the 32nd District convened to chose their candidate in the special election to fill the vacant State Senate seat left behind by the resignation of Lou DeLuca. The promptly and efficiently chose the crappiest candidate of two contenders.
Tossing a former US ambassador with an extensive and impressive resume to the curb, Democrats chose Ken Curran, a man who I suspect has played Dungeons & Dragons in his basement as recently as Friday.
Curran (pictured) has a terrific background. He is a blogger. He is chairman of the Bethlehem Democrats, worked on Joe Liberman's campaign, and he managed Hartford Mayor Eddie Perez's campaign. And oh yeah, he served on some local boards and commissions. He will face Watertown Republican Councilman Rob Kane in a January 15th Special Election.
The leftwing blogosphere is distraught... Lieberman and Perez are detested by this group. He may need to recruit some elves and wizards to work on his campaign.
