Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.) told a small group of bloggers in St. Paul the GOP would embrace Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman if he decided to cross party lines.

“We certainly would welcome him,” McConnell said. “He would be out of sync with most of our members on domestic issues, but frankly we have other members who are.”

“He is the last Scoop Jackson Democrat,” McConnell added.
