House GOP Leader Candelora Statement on the Passing of Former U.S. Sen. Lieberman

Posted on March 27, 2024

 House Republican Leader Vincent Candelora on Wednesday released the following statement regarding the passing of former U.S. Senator and Vice Presidential Candidate Joseph Lieberman:

“Joe Lieberman has always embodied the spirit of bipartisanship in politics. Willing to see the best in his political opposites, he saw them as colleagues who could help forge the best outcomes for Connecticut, rather than enemies to be dismissed because they simply disagreed with him on an issue.

“And Joe Lieberman was a force on the national political scene for decades, drawing people from all walks of life into his sphere, giving Connecticut a more robust voice on the national stage. Going back to 1970 when, during his run for state Senate in Connecticut as a Reform Democrat, he engaged a young Yale student named Bill Clinton to work on his campaign. The rest, with Joe Lieberman’s legacy as a state Attorney General, four-term U.S. Senator, vice presidential candidate and statesmen, as they say, is history.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Haddassah and the Lieberman family.’’
