In 2006, was part of a grassroots Progressive network that helped Ned Lamont overcome a 59 point deficit to defeat then Sen. Joe Lieberman by 4 points in the Democratic Primary. Served on board of CT NOW that year and helped it persuade national NOW to endorse Lamont over Lieberman. NOW was only national feminist group that endorsed Ned Lamont in 2006.
