From the August 23 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show:
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Well, you know, I got to tell you something, and I supported you last time; we put you on the program a number of times last time. I warmly offer you my endorsement and my support. I think you'd be a great senator.
KELLI WARD: Thank you.
HANNITY: And so you can tell your crowd there that Sean Hannity just endorsed you again.
WARD: Sean Hannity just endorsed me.
HANNITY: All right, there you go. By the way for some people that could be the kiss of death. Just so you know Joe Lieberman, when he was running as an Independent said, “Could you just not talk about me? I mean I know we agree on Israel and terrorism and I know that there's no other choice and we don't agree on every social policy.” But he goes, “Everytime you mention my name you're killing me because they say Joe Lieberman's friends with Sean Hannity.”
