Senate Democratic Caucus Holds Firm

Despite pre-midterm speculation that Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Ben Nelson (D-NE), two centrists in the Democratic caucus, could choose to caucus with Republicans in the next Congress, each have recently ruled out the possibility of changing their affiliations.

Asked about whether he was considering a switch in an interview with Roll Call, Nelson said, "I'm certainly not planning to, and the answer I've been giving is 'No.'"

Lieberman gave a similar answer to CapitolBeatOK, stating, "I will remain an Independent, but will caucus with Democrats in the Senate. That's my tradition and I'll stick with it."
