Reid mum on Lieberman’s political future

WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declined tonight to discuss the political future of Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, but said the two are expected to talk Thursday.

Lieberman, the Independent Democrat, has been at odds with Democrats over his support for Republican presidential nominee John McCain.

But the party has refrained from taking action. The Senate was narrowly divided before tonight's election, when Democrats widened their majority.

Republicans, including Nevada Sen. John Ensign, have said they would welcome Lieberman should he choose to switch parties.
