Never On Shabbat

Continued from preceding page

Weicker, a three-term in-
cumbent, has been labeled a
friend of Israel during his 18
years in the Senate. Accor-
dingly, pro-Israel political ac-
tion committees consistently
have donated money to his
campaigns.
Such support groups, in-
cluding heavyweights Multi-
. Issue PAC and Washington
PAC, have continued in 1988
to offer Weicker financial sup-
port despite efforts by another
pro-Israel and Jewish
challenger who hopes to land
a job on Capitol Hill.
"A lot of PACs feel they
shouldn't abandon friends of
Israel," says Toby Dershowitz,
spokesman for the American
Israel Public Affairs
Committee.
News that he was not secur-
ing funds from such PACs sur-
prised Lieberman, who says
PACs could support two pro-
Israel candidates without
abandoning a friendly incum-
bent. To date, the Weicker
camp has raised $1.9 million,
compared to Lieberman's $1.5
million.
"Mr. Weicker does have a
good record on Israel, but I
am convinced I can be a more
effective advocate for the peo-
ple of my state and for Israel,"
Lieberman says. "Lately, he
has made a lot of noise and
not a lot of difference. He's
been there 18 years and he is
vulnerable."
Lieberman, whose political
career spans nearly 20 years
and includes just one major
defeat in a 1980 race for U.S.
House of Representatives,
says he opted to run against
Weicker at the urging of
members of the Democratic
National Committee.
In his last re-election bid,
Weicker edged former U.S.
Rep. Toby Moffett, a Democrat
from Connecticut, by a 4 per-
cent victory margin. To date,
polls show Lieberman bet-
ween five and 18 points
behind Weicker.
Weicker could not be reach-
ed for comment. His press
aides say his only statement
is that the best man will win.
He is the only Republican to
win statewide office since
1970.
Of Connecticut's 3.2 million
population,
675,000
registered voters
are
Democrats, 450,000 are
registered Republicans and
558,000 are unaffiliated. Con-
necticut's Jewish population
is estimated at 150,000.
In 1982 and 1986, Lieber-
man was the state's top vote-
getter on the Democratic
ticket. He hopes to secure the
swing votes of the unaf-
filiated to win the race that
analysts say could go either
way.

Lieberman's political career
began in 1970 when at 27 he
was elected to the state
Senate. A graduate of Yale
University school of law, his
career includes several years
as an attorney, serving as an
assistant dean of the Yale
University school of art and
architecture and writing four
books — The Power Broker , a
biography of the late
Democratic Party Chairman
John Bailey; The Scorpion
and the Tarantula, a study of
early efforts to control
nuclear proliferation; The
Legacy, a history of Connec-
ticut politics from 1930 to
1980; and Child Support in
America.
He lives in New Haven with
Haddassah and their four
children. ■
