Bysiewicz to vie for Lieberman's Senate seat

(CNN) - A prominent Connecticut Democratic politician announced Tuesday her intention to launch a bid for the state's Senate seat currently held by independent Sen. Joseph Lieberman.

Former Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz's announcement may encourage others eyeing the Democratic nomination to announce their intentions sooner rather than later. Reps. Joe Courtney and Chris Murphy are said to be considering a bid; Lieberman's Democratic colleagues are rumored to be encouraging him to run for re-election as a Democrat.
