Senator Joseph Lieberman speaks at the announcement event of a Pro Bass Shop opening in the Steel Point redevelopment in Bridgeport on Sunday, July 8, 2012.

The Bull Moose and Whig parties have nothing on Connecticut for Lieberman.

Despite the fact that the its enigmatic namesake is retiring from the Senate in less than six months, CFL still has 79 members, according to the latest voter registration totals from the secretary of the state’s office.

Joe Lieberman’s supporters created the small party in 2006 after he lost the Democratic Senate primary to Greenwich cable television entrepreneur Ned Lamont.

The party has even picked up three new members since the start of 2012, two of whom are in the 18 to 29-year-old age bracket, according to the SOTS.

Lieberman went on to win re-election as an independent, inflaming many Democrats, though he still caucuses with his old party.

Connecticut for Lieberman still maintains a website and is holding a caucus to nominate candidates at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9, at Javapalooza at 330 Main St. in Middletown.

Or, as Lieberman would bill it, a Cup of Joe.
