Bloomberg to campaign for Lieberman

HARTFORD, Conn. --Republican New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will host a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman at the mayor's Upper East Side town house, Lieberman's campaign announced Sunday night.
Lieberman, who lost the Democratic primary to Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont, is running for re-election as an independent, a move that has alienated many Democrats.
Dan Gerstein, a spokesman for Lieberman's campaign, said the fundraiser will be held on Nov. 1 and will be co-chaired another Republican, New York Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, and former Democratic Mayor Ed Koch.
Bloomberg also will appear with Lieberman's wife, Hadassah, at an Oct. 25 fundraiser in Chicago and is hoping to do another appearance on Lieberman's behalf in Connecticut, Gerstein said.
"Sen. Lieberman is extremely grateful to Mayor Bloomberg for being so generous with his time," Gerstein said. "The mayor is renowned as a leader who puts people ahead of politics and gets things done for his constituents and his support and validation mean a lot to our campaign."
Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser said the mayor is looking forward to helping Lieberman.
"The mayor thinks the world of Sen. Lieberman, because he speaks his mind and does what he thinks is right," Loeser said............

of course da liebs is calling for 'unity' AND he went off on people who went off on those who opposed the war. he's just doing everything in his power to try to get more votes (well everyone running does that in all fairness). however, da liebs is punching below the belt on this one.
