Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman — deeply unpopular with voters in his home state — is unlikely to seek reelection, a knowledgeable source tells POLITICO ahead of the senator’s announcement on Wednesday.
Lieberman remains a registered Democrat and continues to caucus with Democrats in the Senate.
The Democrats’ 2000 vice presidential nominee on the ticket with Al Gore, Lieberman today is deeply unpopular with Democrats in Connecticut as well as nationally.
They feel betrayed by his strong support of the Iraq war, his opposition to the public option in health-care reform, and his endorsement of GOP nominee John McCain in 2008.
