From the Hotline, we find out that Joe Lieberman is calling in the heavy artillery:

Lieberman Campaign Announces Former President Bill Clinton to Campaign for Sen. Joe Lieberman

Will Make Campaign Stop Next Monday in Waterbury
July 20, 2006

Hartford, CT- The Lieberman Campaign announced today that Former President Bill Clinton will make a campaign stop for Sen. Joe Lieberman next Monday, July 24 in Waterbury.

“We are thrilled to have President Clinton come to the state to campaign for Sen. Lieberman,” said Marion Steinfels, Lieberman campaign spokesman. “It is not only a big day for our campaign, but it is a big day for Waterbury and Connecticut.”

Clinton and Lieberman have known each other since Clinton worked on Lieberman’s first campaign for State Senate in 1970 while he was in school at Yale in New Haven. Years later, Lieberman was the first Senator outside the South to endorse Clinton in his 1992 Presidential Campaign.

Waterbury has been the site of several high profile political visits including a visit by then Sen. Kennedy on the eve of the 1960 presidential election.
