Pro-Israel Donors Rally For Joe, as Left Takes Aim (Jennifer Siegel, June 23, 2006, The Forward)

With Senator Joseph Lieberman facing an increasingly tight primary fight, pro-Israel interest groups are stepping up their support for the former vice presidential candidate. [...]

The Lamont-Lieberman race has emerged as one of the most closely watched primaries in the country, in large part because unseating Lieberman, one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress, has emerged as a priority among activists on the left. MoveOn.org — the Web-based liberal organization whose fund-raising efforts gave wings to Howard Dean's presidential campaign in 2004 — decided to support the Lamont campaign after it held a mock primary on the Internet last month.

It's no a good sign when a simple renomination bid forces the contradictions in your coalition.
