Reid Aide: Lieberman Likely Will Lose Chairmanship
Thursday, November 06, 2008 at 6:39 pm
As I wrote earlier, Harry Reid (D-Nevada), the Senate majority leader, met with Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) today about whether Lieberman would stay in the Democratic caucus and, if so, whether he would keep his chairmanship of the Senate oversight committee.
While no announcement was made after the meeting, a Reid aide told the Associated Press that the Senate leader is “leaning toward” stripping Lieberman of his chairman duties.
Lieberman gave no indication about his future, telling reporters this afternoon that he will spend a “few days thinking about what Sen. Reid and I discussed.”
