Last year, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) broke with his former colleagues in the Democratic party to stump for Republican candidates all across the country, including John McCain. Yesterday, Lieberman said he’s planning a repeat performance on the congressional campaign trail in 2010.

Lieberman, from an interview with ABC News:

“I probably will support some Republican candidates for Congress or Senate in the election in 2010. I’m going to call them as I see them.”In addition to McCain, Lieberman hit the trail in 2008 for Republicans Sen. Susan Collins (ME) and Rep. Peter King (NY).

Both are moderates that like Lieberman have been known to support Democratic programs against the wishes of their friends in the GOP. And Collins, like Lieberman, has said she supports sweeping health care reform and also said she is ready to help block any bill that includes a public option.
