Wyden Backs Lamont in General Election

From spokesman Geoff Stuckart in Wyden's Portland office:
As Vice-Chair of the DSCC, Senator Wyden will support the Democratic nominee, Mr. Lamont.

Just-asked but not yet answered questions:
Will he consider supporting him financially or campaigning for him, and will he ask Majority Leader Reid to strip Lieberman from committee assignments if he refuses to acknowledge the party's nominee?

Good on ya, Ron. As with the previous statement pre-primary, I think he's just following Chuck Schumer's lead as head of the DSCC, but that's OK. He's picked the right course.
