2. Lieberman spokeswoman, "Clinton have both been supporters of Senator Lieberman for many, many years.
Lieberman spokeswoman Marion Steinfels said the three-term senator is "totally focused on winning the Democratic primary."

"Senator Clinton and President Clinton have both been supporters of Senator Lieberman for many, many years. He greatly values her friendship and her support in the primary," Steinfels said. "The support is part of the reason he's working so hard, with a single-minded focus to win the Democratic primary."
