    That’s CT-4, presumably.

    I’ll say this for the CT Greens: at least they extracted a concession, however unenforceable, from the Ds, in return for folding.

    Typo fixed. Not sure what they got from the concessions. You can make arguments both ways about whether the GP did the right thing here.

    The concessions are of questionable value (“Farrell has agreed to post Green Party issues on her campaign Web site and to support the party’s participation in future debates.”), but they’re something.

    Farrell apparently endorsed Lieberman in the CT primary, and criticizes Iraq for not being sufficiently pro-Israel(!) .

    I don’t like it myself. But I appreciate the principle of getting something, however small, in return.
