Well over 500 people gathered at Stamford High School Sunday evening to participate in a candle light vigil lead by a coalition of faith leaders from around Connecticut. After gathering at the school, residents poured out en mass into the street and crossed the road to stand with candles lit, praying for Sen. Lieberman not to filibuster health reform.
The question today is will Lieberman change his stance and not side with Republicans on the filibuster they propose? Sen. Lieberman caucuses with Democrats and is also a committee chair. If he joins with Republicans and filibusters the health reform bill, not even allowing it to be debated on the floor of the Senate, what action should Senate Democrats take? Answer our poll below.
