Senate Republicans lauded Lieberman's possible candidacy, but that support did not extend across the aisle.

The scene was reminiscent of Trump's very public search for a vice president and his transition period, when potential Cabinet picks were paraded through the lobby of Trump Tower in NY. Previously, the president had expressed interest in Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Tex.) for the post.
