Ken Salazar to Back Joe Lieberman

|

Colorado’s Sen. Ken Salazar has made his decision. Despite Connecticut Democrats choosing Ned Lamont as their Senate candidate, he will support Joe Leiberman in his independent party bid for the U.S. Senate.

“I want to see Joe Lieberman back in the Senate because he is one of those senators in the center, one of the moderate Democrats and Republicans who get things done,” Salazar said Wednesday in Pueblo. “I gave him my word that I would support him and I will.”
