great one!Lowell Weicker is re-elected to the US Senate in 1988, defeating Joe Lieberman. I think this may have been one of the very few elections where William F. Buckley, Jr. actually made the difference. Buckley (who was of course a resident of CT) had a special disdain for liberal Republicans like Weicker; he backed Lieberman and very likely persuaded enough conservatives to vote for Lieberman to enable Lieberman to win that very close race. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Senate_election_in_Connecticut,_1988
Without Lieberman Al Gore might choose Bob Graham or Jeanne Shaheen as his running mate--and might therefore win FL or NH, either of which would be sufficient for an Electoral College victory.
