Which Democrat Is Not Supporting Joe Lieberman?

Fox News

Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman's lead over challenger Ned Lamont in the Connecticut Senate primary is shrinking fast, dropping from 20 points to just 6 in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll.

Now, Lieberman's running mate in the 2000 presidential election has refused to come to his aid. Former Vice President Al Gore says he won't endorse Lieberman, though he calls him a "close friend," telling Bloomberg TV, "I don't get involved in primaries."

But that did not stop Gore from endorsing Howard Dean for president during the 2004 presidential primary season, while Lieberman was still in the presidential race.
