Incumbent Lieberman wins Connecticut Senate race, CNN projects
(CNN) -- Democratic senator-turned-independent candidate Joe Lieberman will win the Connecticut Senate race, defeating the Democratic nominee, Ned Lamont, and Republican candidate Alan Schlesinger, CNN projects.

Lieberman ran as an independent after losing the Democratic primary to Lamont.

Exit polls indicated that support from Republicans and independents propelled Lieberman to victory. Seventy percent of Republicans voted for the incumbent senator (compared to 21 percent who backed the party's official candidate, Alan Schlesinger). A bare majority of independent voters supported Lieberman, with 38 percent voting for Lamont.
