Lieberman Says He Was Promised Seniority
Very few Democratic senators openly back his independent bid for re-election, but Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) says he's been promised his seniority if he wins the general election against Ned Lamont (D), according to The Hill.
"Lieberman said he assumed that would mean he would continue to serve as the top Democrat on the governmental affairs panel... That could create big problems with Democrats in Congress and around the country if their party takes over the Senate.
The governmental affairs panel is primarily responsible for oversight and investigations of the executive branch."
