Lieberman wins, but will Democrats embrace him
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Connecticut, won another six-year term Tuesday night, but there appears to be some hard feelings from the party faithful after he chose to run for re-election following a loss in the Democratic primary this summer.
At a Democratic campaign party in the nation's capital, Democrats cheered each time it was announced a Democrat had won a race. That was until it was stated Lieberman, who ran as an Independent in the general election, had defeated Democratic nominee Ned Lamont.
Hushed boos and grumbling echoed throughout the hotel ballroom when Lieberman's name was called.
