Lieberman off the fence, a “yes” on the debt deal

A spokeswman for Sen. Joseph Lieberman said this morning that the Connecticut independent will be a “yes” vote on the debt-ceiling deal, which is set for a noon vote in the Senate today.

Lieberman had said yesterday that he was on the fence over the agreement, citing concerns about the possible defense cuts included in the measure. But he’s now apparently on board and will be explaining his decision in a Senate speech later this morning.
