The multimillionaire garnered a national following last year by snatching the Democratic Senatorial nomination from incumbent Joe Lieberman, prompting Lieberman to seek re-election as an Independent.

Lamont is making his latest pitch to the blogosphere, which propelled him from political obscurity into the national spotlight, on behalf of ActBlue. The two-year-old organization collects small donations via its Web site and disperses the money to Democratic candidates.

“Our campaign would not have been possible without your support last year,” Lamont wrote in a missive distributed last week. “And future underdog campaigns will not be possible without the opportunities for engagement ActBlue provides.”
