A former Democratic vice-presidential candidate, Sen. Lieberman was born in Stamford, Conn., and received his bachelor’s and law degrees from Yale. He was elected to the Connecticut State Senate in 1970 and served there for 10 years, including the last six as majority leader. In 1980, he returned to private legal practice for two years, and from 1983 through 1988, he was Connecticut's 21st Attorney General. In 1988, he was elected to the United States Senate.

He lives in Stamford and Washington, D.C. with his wife Hadassah, the daughter of Holocaust survivors who has spent her career working on healthcare issues.
