In what could be seen as yet another blow to the Democrats, following on the footsteps of two major losses for Governor in New Jersey and Virginia, a Congressional party switcher to the GOP, and a major Senate seat switch from Democrat to Republican in Massachusetts, Connecticut Independent-Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman has now declared himself completely Independent. He has previously identified himself as an “Independent-slash-Democrat.”
Asked by an interviewer which affiliation would he run for re-election under in 2012, Lieberman responded:
LIEBERMAN: I must tell you at this moment in our political life, which is so partisan… I like being an Independent. So, if you asked me that would be the most likely of the choices.
EYEWITNESS NEWS REPORTER: Could you see yourself as a Republican? Is that possible?
LIEBERMAN: Yeah, it’s possible. A good old fashioned New England moderate Republican.
Note – a full switch by Lieberman, plus a Republican pick-up in CT of the Dodd seat, would put the GOP at parity with the Democrats in New England Senate seats, 6 to 6.
