Lieberman (R-CT)

Basically, Joe Lieberman (R-CT) is now the official Republican Senate nominee in Connecticut.

The NRSC has confirmed that they will not support the actual Republican nominee, Alan Schlesinger.

They figure that since Schlesinger really does have no chance, having Lieberman is better than having Lamont. I have yet to hear a condemnation of these tactics from Lieberman, so, bascially, he is assenting. He is tacitly agreeing to be the Republican nominee for Senate in Connecticut. So sad to see a man so dedicated to power that he will forsake everything he supposedly believes in.

At least the DSCC is actually loyal to their own party. Since the August 8th primary, the DSCC and a vast majority of Democratic officials have publicly endorsed their own candidate, Ned Lamont. Even those with close personal connections to Lieberman, such as Al Gore and Chris Dodd, have endorsed Lamont.

But the NRSC, actually declining to support their own candidate? Absolutely shameless.

Could you please post the OFFICIAL statement from the NRSC that shows they are genuinely backing Lieberman.

Uuntil then, its huff and puff hearsay.

Of course there's been no press release.

But, refusing to support their own candidate? Assenting to their party's members supporting Lieberman? Cheney, Rove and Mehlman all hinting at their support?

I don't think it gets any clearer than that.

And of course a lot of the fault lies with Lieberman, for not repudiating all of these people. C
