Sen. Joe Lieberman, the independent from Connecticut, announced Wednesday that he will not seek re-election, telling reporters at a midday press conference “I have decided that it’s time to turn the page to a new chapter.”
“I’ve loved serving in the Senate and I feel good about what I’ve accomplished. But I know that it is the right decision, and I must say, having made it, I am excited to begin a new chapter of life with new opportunities,” said Lieberman Wednesday.
Thanks for your help with DADT, Joe. Otherwise, later!
