Baldwin: No Lieberman Challenge

A spokesman for Alec Baldwin says the actor has no plans to challenge Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman .

Matthew Hiltzik said Monday that Baldwin does not plan to move to Connecticut or to run against the independent senator. He says Baldwin doesn't want to see Lieberman leave the Senate because there are so few moderate Republicans in the Senate.

Earlier this summer, Baldwin was quoted in Playboy magazine saying that he was interested in politics and would love to run against Lieberman. His brother, Stephen Baldwin, said last week that his older brother is serious about politics.

Lieberman, who was asked about the issue Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," says he respects Baldwin as an actor, but dared him to "make my day" with a Senate challenge.

"30 Rock" airs on NBC.
