Lieberman Gets His First Dem Challenger

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) can expect opposition from Democrats and Republicans if he decides to run next year.(Liz Lynch)

January 18, 2011
There was some speculation that Lieberman may meet with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee about the race, but he has since said that if he runs it will be as an independent. For Bysiewicz to be successful, she'll need to overcome several missteps that have called into question her competency. Most recently, there was a significant hiccup in the ballot counting process after the 2010 election. She also briefly ran for governor last year before switching her focus to the attorney general's race. That proved to be a mistake, however, when the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that she wasn't qualified for that position. On the Republican side, potential candidates include 2010 contender and former WWE CEO Linda McMahon, who has met with the National Republican Senatorial Committee about the 2012 race.
