Lieberman to Stump For GOP And May Not Seek Dem Nod In 2012
Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman told ABC News he will campaign for some Republicans during the 2010 midterm elections and may not seek the Democratic nomination when he runs for reelection in 2012. After pledging to be a loyal Democrat, Lieberman was permitted to retain his chairmanship of the Commerce Committee, but now says, “I probably will support some Republican candidates for Congress or Senate in the election in 2010. I’m going to call them as I see them.”
Asked if he will seek the Democratic nomination when he runs for re-election in 2012, Lieberman said, “That’s an open question.”
“There are options,” Lieberman said. “The other, obviously, is to just start as an independent, which is where I ended up in 2006.”
Lieberman does say he’ll support Democratic Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd in Dodd’s reelection bid in 2010.Click here for reuse options!
