On January 16, 2003 the Jewish Bulletin News reported that "Joseph Lieberman's formal announcement Monday that he has jumped into the presidential ring has touched off a quiet undercurrent of concern that 2004 may not be as opportune a time for a breakthrough Jewish candidacy as 2000... Some Jewish leaders even worry that the Connecticut senator's candidacy could trigger new anti-Semitism in a nation on edge over the sinking economy, Mideast turmoil and the specter of new terrorism."
