Loserman is forgiven

Posted By on Tue, Nov 18, 2008 at 12:25 PM

The Senate Democratic caucus today allowed Sen. Joe Lieberman to keep his committee chairmanship. Vote was 42-13, TPM said. More here.

The vote was secret. I've asked the offices of Sens. Pryor and Lincoln for comments.

UPDATE: Lincoln and Pryor voted with the majority.

Pryor said: While I was disappointed with Joe’s actions during the campaign season, I agree with President-elect Obama that there is no need to hold grudges and it’s time to move on.”

Lincoln said: “Like others in our caucus, I was disappointed in Senator Lieberman’s handling of the campaign.  But as President-elect Obama has said, now is the time to move forward.  Our country faces some extraordinary challenges, and our caucus is as united as we’ve ever been to address those issues head on.”
