Update From CT: Schlesinger Chased From Race? (National Journal)

Hartford Courant columnist Kevin F. Rennie sends along this late breaking news:

Connecticut Republicans may soon have a vacancy to fill for their United States Senate nomination.

Former state Representative Alan Schlesinger is being dogged by gambling rumors, and Bradley Beecher, former commanding officer of the state police’s casino licensing and operations unit, says he received a call from Schlesinger on Tuesday, July 11th seeking information on who was checking out his gambling habits. Beecher is now a consultant on casino security and law enforcement. He’s also a critic of Connecticut gaming policies. [...]

Republican state chairman George Gallo has conferred with Schlesinger and is concerned about the implications of the brewing gambling scandal.

Karl Rove clears the decks for the party switch.

Joe will only go as far as I and vote with the Dems. It will be interesting to see if the GOP problems help Lamont or Lieberman
