BOSTON - CNN on Tuesday called the contest to replace retiring Senator Joe Lieberman for Democrat Chris Murphy over Republican Linda McMahon in Connecticut.
Lieberman became an Independent after losing the Democratic primary in his last race, but most of his career was spent as a Democrat and he continued to caucus with them even after becoming in Independent.
