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.

Who else is backing Lieberman? Among Democratic senators, only Sens. Ben Nelson (D-NE), Tom Carper (D-Delaware) andMark Pryor (D-Arkansas) . Who's supporting Lamont? National Democrats who have gone on record to support the will of Connecticut Democratic Party voters in the 2006 Senate campaign.
