With word circulating that an exit poll has Ned Lamont leading Joe Lieberman, Dan Gerstein, Lieberman’s campaign press secretary, says he’s not surprised. “We expect this will be a two or three point race,” he said shorty after 7:00. “It’s going to be close.” There is anecdotal evidence, Gerstein said, of higher-than-expected turnout — “but not necessarily in places where Lamont is supposed to be strong and we’re supposed to be weak.”
For whatever that’s worth.
