Breaking news: Independent Senator and former Democrat nominee for Vice President Joseph Lieberman will endorse Republican Senator John McCain for President.
Sen. Joseph Lieberman (Conn.), who was on the national Democratic ticket in 2000, will cross the aisle to endorse Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) tomorrow, Republican sources said.
The two will appear together on NBC’s “Today” show tomorrow, then at an 8 a.m. town hall in Hillsborough, N.H.
Don’t think this will help McCain any place except in New Hampshire where Independents may vote for him. In fact, it very much reminds the GOP base why they mistrust McCain’s GOP values in the first place.
This endorsement in the short term may hurt Mitt Romney in New Hampshire, help Rudy Giuliani in Michigan and help Fred Thompson in South Carolina.
John McCain will be the net loser in this latest deal. But, what does he care? McCain lost this battle for the Presidency long ago.
