Lowell Palmer Weicker Jr. (/waɪkər/; born May 16, 1931) is an American politician who served as a U.S. Representative, U.S. senator, and the 85th Governor of Connecticut. He unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for president in 1980. He was known as a liberal or Rockefeller-style Republican in Congress, causing conservative-leaning Republicans to endorse his opponent Joe Lieberman, a New Democrat in the 1988 Senate election which he subsequently lost. He later left the Republican Party and became one of the few third party candidates to be elected to a state governorship in the United States in recent years, doing so on the ticket of A Connecticut Party.
