Lieberman to Hang It Up in 2012
Posted on Jan 18, 2011
The last decade has been a politically eventful one for Connecticut’s Sen. Joe Lieberman, who kicked off the millennium with a vice-presidential near miss and went on to raise Democratic hackles more recently with his changing loyalties and positions, but his long run is about to end. According to The New York Times, Lieberman is gearing up to announce that he won’t seek re-election when his current term is up in 2012. —KA
The New York Times:
Mr. Lieberman, whose term is up in 2012, chose to retire rather than risk being defeated, said the person, who spoke to the senator on Tuesday.
“I don’t think he wanted to go out feet first,” the person said.
