Baldwin Blinks


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) A spokesman for Alec Baldwin says the actor has no plans to challenge Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman in the 2012 election.

Matthew Hiltzik said Monday that Baldwin does not plan to move to Connecticut or to run against the independent senator. He says Baldwin doesn't want to see Lieberman leave the Senate because there are so few moderate Republicans in the Senate.

It's a reversal from Baldwin's comments published last week in Playboy magazine, in which the "30 Rock" star mulls a Senate campaign and says he had "no use" for Lieberman.

Lieberman, who was asked about the issue Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," says he respects Baldwin as an actor, but dared him to "make my day" with a senate challenge.

Heck, I'd have bought tickets to watch Holy Joe wipe the floor with that guy.
