Ned Lamont defeated incumbent U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman in the Connecticut Democratic primary by an approximate margin of 52 to 48 percent.
Lieberman conceded, but he indicated he will try for re-election as an Independent.
Mr. Lieberman did not say specifically that he would run as an independent candidate in November, as he has suggested in recent weeks, but his defiant tone suggested he would.
He said the he could not let the results stand, "for the sake for our state, my party, and our country."
His party? Does he mean the one that just turned him out?
He is going to defy the results of a democratic election for the sake of his country? How selfless.
