Raising Kaine: Lieberman v. Weicker, 1988
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 06:35 PM by Catchawave
This is a great investigative diary, here's a snip:

Copyright 1988

The New York Times Company

The New York Times

February 23, 1988, Tuesday, Late City Final Edition

Attorney General Joseph I. Lieberman, stressing family and consumer issues and such statewide concerns as high housing costs, today formally announced his campaign to unseat Republican Senator Lowell P. Weicker Jr. ''Connecticut needs a Senator who will put Connecticut first,'' Mr. Lieberman said, standing in freezing temperatures on the steps of the Connecticut Supreme Court Building, surrounded by about 120 supporters.

''I see the United States Senate as much more than a debating society, more than a bully pulpit for a narrow personal agenda,'' he added. ''I see the United States Senate as the place where we can light a spark that can truly change our lives.''

snip

Mr. Lieberman also has said that he will attack Mr. Weicker as a Senator who has pursued his own personal agenda rather than such issues concerning many Connecticut voters as clean air and water, consumer affairs and the cost of education.

Although considered by both Democrats and Republicans to be a slight underdog, Mr. Lieberman contended that Mr. Weicker was vulnerable after nearly three terms in office.

''Connecticut needs a Senator who will bring new energy to Washington and new help back here in Connecticut,'' he said. ''And, bottom line, I am running for the United States Senate because I know deep in my heart that the people of Connecticut, after 18 years, are ready to say, 'Thanks Lowell. Now, it's time for a change.' ''

2. Ironic.....
as 18 years later, Connecticut Democrats are saying the same thing "now, it's time for a change."

Thank you for that!
