Lieberman To Campaign With Rob Simmons (R) Today

The fifth-party candidate will help out one of the main targets of Democrats who want to take back the House (with whom he shares pollster Neil Newhouse) today:

Lieberman will appear with two prominent Republicans, Gov. M. Jodi Rell and U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, R-2nd, to celebrate last year's reversal of a Pentagon decision to close the Groton submarine base.

Meanwhile, Ned Lamont (D) will be helping out Joe Courtney (D) today, who is challenging Simmons.

Lieberman had previously endorsed Courtney and exactly two weeks ago said he would continue to support Courtney as well as the other Democratic House candidates:

Lieberman said that he will continue to support the Democrats running for Congress even though they now support Lamont.

"It is a little bit harder, but I have endorsed the three of them," he said. Lieberman endorsed Joe Courtney over Rep. Rob Simmons, R-2, and Chris Murphy over Rep. Nancy Johnson, R-5.

(Update: As an aside, Ned Lamont won Groton in the primary, 55% to 45%.)
What is going on with erasing Lieberman from the Democratic list in New Haven???? Not only does the forming of a new one person party provide enough ammunition under Connecticut General Statutes sec. 9-61, but his blatant rejection of the Democratic Party should seal a decision to erase him (from the list and the Senate). Who is letting him run amok? Has he hired Tom Cruise's new manager?
Wait, wait!

Isn't he really a "tied for third" candidate?
I don't get it. He campaigns with Simmons and supports Courtney? I think it's time for Harry to have a little talk with Joe.
yes i see..Joementum is "helping" Courtney by campaigning with Simmons and Rell..
