erku's picture

United States (U.S.) Senator Joe Lieberman is scheduled to speak at the Republican party convention, according to a member of the John McCain campaign who wishes to remain anonymous.

Joe Lieberman, who was the Democratic vice presidential candidate in the 2000 presidential election, has been one of Republican party candidate, John McCain's, staunchest supporters.

The official who informed the press of this announcement stated that Lieberman is slated to speak on the second day, a Monday, of the convention. There has been a lot of speculation in the past months that Lieberman would speak at the convention. In a interview with David Brody of CBN, Lieberman stated in response to the question about the possibility of him being at the convention that, "well, it's not clear yet but you might just see me there."

Lieberman is currently in Georgia, with Senator Lindsey Graham, responded when asked if he would be speaking at the convention that "it's quite possible, but I'll let them announce it." Lieberman's office has not commented on this announcement.

Lieberman has been recently considered a possible candidate for the republican vice presidential seat. The convention will be held in St. Paul, Minnesota from September 1 through the 4th. He is currently a Independent Senator in Connecticut, who caucuses with the democratic party. Lieberman was the democratic vice presidential candidate back in 2000, when he ran with Al Gore.
