Doug Schoen, pollster for Senator Joe Lieberman's (D-CT) 2004 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, has donated the maximum legally possible to Ned Lamont, the Senator's challenger in the Connecticut primary, according to today's Roll Call.

Schoen was also a pollster for Lieberman's bid for Vice President on the Al Gore presidential ticket.

Excerpts from the Roll Call story follow:


Federal Election Commission records show that Schoen gave $2,100 to Lamont on March 7.

Tom Swan, Lamont’s campaign manager, told us, “Doug and Ned have known each other for a very long time.”

Schoen is not Lamont’s pollster, however. “I chose to go in a different direction,” Swan said, adding that Lamont’s campaign has “avoided inside-the-Beltway firms.”
