The teaser from Drudge says, “Lieberman making contingency plans to quit presidential race…”
So long, Joe.
UPDATE: AP has the story:
Democrat Joe Lieberman, facing an uncertain showing in his must-win state of Delaware, was making contingency plans Tuesday to withdraw from the presidential race, according to sources close to the campaign.
The campaign was making calls to close supporters asking them to be at the Hyatt Regency in Arlington, Va., Tuesday night at the postelection party. If Lieberman does not win at least one state – and his best hope is Delaware – he will make his concession speech there, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
He then would head home to Connecticut for a formal announcement in Hartford Wednesday.
While campaign staff continued to insist that Lieberman was moving on to campaign in Virginia this week, others close to the senator confirmed they have been told about a tentative 3 p.m. event in Hartford on Wednesday.
Campaign spokesman Adam Kovacevich denied that calls were being made.
I like Lieberman, but it would be nice to see him exit the race while he still has some dignity.
