It seems that Chuck Schumer is trying to quietly move away from the tough spot he found himself in this week with regards to Connecticut’s Democratic primary.

According to a line in today’s New York Times, Schumer’s advisors say the DSCC chair will support Ned Lamont if he beats Joe Lieberman, a modification on the ‘I don’t speculate’ position he expressed on Sunday’s Meet The Press.

We have calls into the DSCC to find out exactly where Chuck stands on the matter, but are there any ideas what would motivate Chuck’s shift?
