Politics1 reports problems in the Lieberman campaign:

Despite Joe Lieberman’s continuing lead for the Democratic Presidential nomination in national polls, he continues to lag in the key early contest states and in the hunt for money. According to the Washington Post, top Lieberman fundraiser Shari Yost quit on Monday — despite a personal plea from the candidate that she stay on. Yost’s top deputy is also departing in the wake of what the newspaper described as “a weekend of turmoil inside the campaign over how to cut costs and put Lieberman into position to compete with better-funded rivals for the Democratic nomination.” The Hartford Courant reported today, however, that Yost will remain a “consultant” for Lieberman. A campaign spokesman said the move came as the campaign looked to “tighten our expenses” while continuing to fundraise.
