From CongressDaily (subscription required): "Asserting his status as an independent and his loyalty to a long-time friend, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., said Thursday he is supporting the 2008 re-election of Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, even though Democrats have already targeted her seat to try to keep control of the Senate.
"I'm going to support Sen. Collins' re-election," he said in an interview with CongressDaily reporters. Lieberman, who was re-elected last year as an independent but continues to caucus with Democrats, added that his leadership PAC has already made the maximum contribution of $5,000 to Collins' campaign.
"This is without regard to who the Democratic nominee would be," he said. "I would just feel that I was not being honest to myself and everything I've said about what our politics should be like now if, for partisan reasons, I didn't support somebody who I think is a great senator."
This is not going to make Lieberman any new friends on the left.
