Dodd Retirement Could Help Dems, Lieberman
Why’s that? Because Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut’s popular attorney general, has already announced that he’ll be entering the race for the seat soon to be vacated by retiring Sen. Chris Dodd (D).
The Hill’s Aaron Blake explains that the shake-up might also spell good news for Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), because Blumenthal was eyeing a shot at Lieberman’s seat in 2012.
“Blumenthal’s decision leaves Lieberman some breathing room, for now, in 2012,” Blake writes.
