State confirms Lieberman's petitions to appear on November ballot
The state confirmed Wednesday that U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman has gathered enough signatures to secure a spot on the November ballot with a new party.
The certification means that Lieberman will run for Senate re-election as part of the Connecticut for Lieberman party against Democrat Ned Lamont and Republican Alan Schlesinger. Lieberman was able to get 8,215 validated signatures. His campaign had collected more than 18,500 signatures, but the secretary of state's office stopped counting because he had more than the 7,500 needed.
Lieberman lost the Democratic primary to Lamont on August 8. Lamont, a Greenwich businessman, had criticized Lieberman for supporting the Iraq war and for being too close to Republicans.
