Less than an hour before U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman's campaign bus pulled up outside City Hall, the city registrar's office had no idea the senator was coming.
Hardly anyone else did either.
Not until about 9 p.m. Wednesday did Democratic Party leaders in Bristol find out that Lieberman was heading to town the next morning. When city Councilor Ellen Zoppo got word, she said she tried to send out e-mails to people who would want to know but it was already quite late.
The party chairman in Bristol, Dean Kilbourne, waited for Lieberman for about 20 minutes at City Hall before heading to his law office. He never did see the senator.(Collins)
The sad thing is that, according to the article, there were people who genuinely wanted to see him.
