Shays Spills GOP Secret Party Backing Off Talk Of Joining Lieberman's Side (secret, my big fat butt!)
By MARK PAZNIOKAS Courant Staff Writer March 1 2006

It's been the subject of whispered conversations among top Republican officials for the past month. Now, U.S. Rep. Chris Shays, R-4th District, has let slip the secret: GOP officials have discussed cross-endorsing Democratic Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman this fall.In an interview Monday with the editorial board of The Advocate of Stamford, Shays said he intends to vote for Lieberman and is encouraging a Republican endorsement of the three-term senator.The remark was not immediately reported by The Advocate, but it set off a flurry of calls among Republicans who have been gauging support for the idea among GOP candidates, including Gov. M. Jodi Rell and U.S. Reps. Rob Simmons, R-2nd District, and Nancy L. Johnson, R-5th District.One GOP operative who was aware of the discussions said premature public disclosure of the possible cross-endorsement probably would kill the idea.That seems to be case......
