DescriptionSen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Thursday he's open to supporting Republican Linda McMahon over Democrat Richard Blumenthal in the Connecticut Senate race, a move that would once again infuriate Democrats in his home state and in Washington.

“I said I’m open,” Lieberman told POLITICO. “Is it theoretically possible? Yes. I probably know Blumenthal better, but I know Linda McMahon — she was on the state board of higher education, and I met with her a couple of times in that capacity. This is the great privilege that voters of Connecticut gave me in 2006 as an independent. Wait and see.”

Asked whether he is concerned about backlash from the Democratic Party should he back McMahon, Lieberman said: “I’m just saying I’m not eliminating it as a possibility,” adding that he was undecided on which party’s candidate to support in the Connecticut governor’s race as well.
