Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND) told Fox’s Chris Wallace that Sen. Joe Lieberman’s campaigning for the Republican president candidate and some Republican Senators was not acceptable behavior for a someone with a Democratic Chairmanship. “The question is, is that acceptable? The answer is no,” said Dorgan

Dorgan said that Democrats will meet next week to vote on whether Lieberman will be allowed to keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee.

Sen. John Kyle (R-AZ) told Chris Wallace that Republicans would welcome Lieberman into their caucus. Dorgan pointed out that Democrats have no intention of kicking Lieberman out of the Democratic caucus.
