Pryor stands by Lieberman

Posted By on Thu, Jul 6, 2006 at 4:30 PM

A Baltimore blog claims it ascertained that U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor will support U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman's re-election effort in Connecticut -- even if Lieberman does not win the Democratic primary next month.

(Lieberman faces a tough challenge for the Democratic nomination, and earlier this week he said he would run as an independent if he loses the primary. This has caused turmoil among Democrats over whether loyalties should be to the person or the party. Daily Kos is keeping track of where senators stand, under the headline "Who's a loyal Democrat?")

UPDATE: We just spoke with Pryor's communications director, Michael Teague, who confirmed the report.

"He will be supporting [Lieberman] no matter what the outcome," Teague said. "Mark and Joe Lieberman are personal friends, and [Lieberman] has been a trusted mentor. They both served on Senate Armed Services Committee together and [Pryor] told me he will be supporting him no matter what the outcome."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
