Former Democratic U.S. Sen. and 2000 vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman endorsed Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick for re-election in the 1st Congressional District.
During his time in the Senate, Lieberman chaired the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and was a recipient of the American Patriot Award.
“I know Brian, he’s a bridge-builder and a problem solver and has been rated as one of the most bipartisan members of Congress in either party. America needs Brian Fitzpatrick in Congress, particularly at this time of division and partisanship. You don’t find too many Brian Fitzpatricks and when you have one, you should keep him fighting for you,” he said.
“Now more than ever, it is important to set aside party politics and put our country first. I’m honored to have the support of Sen. Lieberman, who has been a model of bipartisanship and independence both in Congress and his work since,” Fitzpatrick said.
