Lieberman weighs in on the Senate race results

After staying on the sidelines of Connecticut’s hotly-contested U.S. Senate, Sen. Joseph Lieberman offered his opinion on the results Wednesday morning.

In a press release, Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-Independent who is up for re-election in 2012 himself, congratulated Blumenthal and welcomed him to the congressional delegation. “I look forward to working closely with Dick and the other members of our delegation as we move forward together to address the pressing issues facing Connecticut and the nation,” he said in the statement.

It’s unclear if Blumenthal will harbor any resentment against Lieberman over the senator’s refusal to endorse him in his brutal contest against Republican Linda McMahon.
