– Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman announced today he will be retiring and will not run for re-election in 2012. It’s now expected that Linda McMahon will be running. In related news, CT Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz announced that she will be running in the Democratic primary for Lieberman’s seat.
