|Description||With public opinion polls showing him trailing challenger Ned Lamont for the first time among likely Democratic primary voters, U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman is calling on some of his party's heaviest hitters. |
Former President Clinton and U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., will stump for him at separate events tomorrow in Stamford, Norwalk and Waterbury, which analysts said could help change the dynamics of the race.
"That could certainly be the difference," said Stuart Rothenberg, author of the biweekly Rothenberg Political Report and columnist for the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call. "I think that's the A-team in terms of trying to get Democratic voters to vote for Lieberman. They both credential Joe Lieberman among Democrats. The subtext there is that it's OK for Democrats to support Lieberman."
