Joementum prevails … Joe Lieberman (I) defeats Ned Lamont (D) for CT US Senate seat


Joe Liberman (I) defeats far left Democratic opponent Ned Lamont in Connecticut US Senate race.

Branded a traitor and rejected by the Democratic Party, Sen. Joe Lieberman completed a dramatic political comeback Tuesday by defeating anti-war challenger Ned Lamont to win a fourth term. (FOX News)

A rather interesting victory in that the far left candidate was defeated. Which begs the question. If the Democrats pick up the necessary seats to win the Senate majority back tonight, what will the make up look like? Far left? Or very moderate? The extreme left of the Senate may have some opposition within their own party. After all, Lieberman voted for and supports the war in Iraq.

      Go Joe! I’m a republican, but I like Joe Lieberman. It’s too bad the Democrats can’t seem to ever nominate a moderate.

      Joe Lieberman is really a decent man. I met him in the early 90′s in CT and also go to follow his 2004 primary run in NH.

      Although I disagree with him on probably 75% of issues, he is what is needed in the Senate. A person who when the issue calls for it like national security is able to put country over party politics.

      Great win, Joe.
