Lieberman told Fox Business he would vote for Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, in November.

He had left open the possibility of supporting Trump, the GOP nominee, in recent days. 

"I'm one of those people, and there are a lot of us, who don't quite feel comfortable either way yet," Lieberman said on Fox News last week.
