Breaking: Joe Lieberman May Endorse Scott Brown (Updated)

Nutroots. Heads. Exploding.

The word on the street is that the good independent senator from Connecticut, Joe Lieberman, may endorse Scott Brown.
Before It’s News reported, via Red Mass Group:

Hartford, CT- Joe Lieberman may be close to announcing his suppport for Massachusetts Senate Candidate Scott Brown. Citing the historical Healthcare Reform Bill as the main issue attracting Lieberman to endorse Brown’s Campaign. Scott Brown is vehemently opposed to the proposed Healthcare Legislation.

Joe Lieberman has run against many of his Democratic Counterparts in the Senate over the so called Obamacare Health Care Reform Bill. Back in December, with the public option dead, Democrats revived an old proposal to expand Medicare, but Lieberman voted no. That plan was considered by a small percentage of liberals as a decent alternative to the public option leaving Lieberman at odds with Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid.

Speculation is such that if Lieberman were to endorse Scott Brown over the coming weekend that would most likely seal the defeat of Martha Coakley for Senate.

Latest Polling has Brown leading Coakley by a margin of 1 to 4 points.

Joe Lieberman has always been a staunch supporter of the war against radical Islam so this makes sense considering Coakley is so lost on national defense.


UPDATE: The Hill is reporting that Senator Lieberman has no plans to endorse in the Mass Senate race.
