Lieberman Declines Invitation—Stand-in Sought / MoveOn.org Statement on Connecticut Online Primary for U.S. Senate

From a MoveOn.org press release to RAW STORY.

#

After initially agreeing, Senator Lieberman has declined our invitation to participate in the MoveOn.org Political Action online primary for U.S. Senate in Connecticut.

We invited both candidates to send an e-mail to MoveOn members in Connecticut as part of our endorsement process. When we spoke last Thursday, the Lieberman campaign agreed to submit an e-mail from the Senator or a surrogate as they did during our 2004 online presidential primary. We received notice after 5:00 PM last night that they would not submit an e-mail to MoveOn members for the primary.

The online primary will go forward. We want our members to have the opportunity to hear a case for endorsement from both the Lieberman and Lamont camps, and we hope to provide a stand-in for the senator.
