Joe Lieberman

The 2000 United States Senate election in Connecticut took place on November 7, 2000 in conjunction with the 2000 U.S. presidential election, other elections to the United States Senate in other states, as well as elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections. Incumbent Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman won re-election to a third term.

While running for re-election, he was also Al Gore's running mate in the 2000 presidential campaign. With Gore losing the presidency to George W. Bush, Lieberman returned to the Senate and remained there for another 12 years, when he retired. Had the Gore-Lieberman ticket won, Lieberman would have become U.S. Vice President and forced to resign his Senate seat, which would have led to a 2002 special election. It would also have led Republican Governor John G. Rowland to temporarily appoint an interim replacement.[1]

This is the last election in which Lieberman formally ran under the Democratic ticket. In 2006, his last election prior to retirement, he ran as an independent Democrat.

Major candidates




Lieberman, a very popular[2] centrist[3] incumbent, focused on his Vice Presidential campaign. He refused to show up at the debates.[4] Giordano was a heavy underdog, as he was ignored by the press and he debated alone.[5]
