Lieberman's campaign manager "unaware" of third-party deadline
Read this money quote.
Lieberman’s campaign manager, Sean Smith, said the senator had previously refused to rule out running as an independent, but is not making any contingency plans to do so.Ah, yeah, right. Lieberman won't rule out a running as an independent but his campaign manager is unaware of the deadline? Who is he trying to fool?
Smith said he was unaware of the deadline for filing third-party candidacies relative to the primary date.
"It’s not something we’re planning for, or are allocating any thoughts or resources for. We are mounting an aggressive Democratic primary campaign, and we intend to win," Smith said.
