Senate '06: Stem Cell Roll Call

Posted by James L.

So, the Senate voted in favor of the embryonic stem cell research bill by a veto-vulnerable 63-37 margin.

Here's a list of the nay votes, with Senators up for re-election this year in bold:

Allard (R-CO)
Allen (R-VA)
Bond (R-MO)
Brownback (R-KS)
Bunning (R-KY)
Burns (R-MT)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coburn (R-OK)
Coleman (R-MN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Craig (R-ID)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeMint (R-SC)
DeWine (R-OH)
Dole (R-NC)
Domenici (R-NM)
Ensign (R-NV)
Enzi (R-WY)
Graham (R-SC)
Grassley (R-IA)
Hagel (R-NE)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Kyl (R-AZ)
Martinez (R-FL)
McConnell (R-KY)
Nelson (D-NE)
Roberts (R-KS)
Santorum (R-PA)
Sessions (R-AL)
Shelby (R-AL)
Sununu (R-NH)
Talent (R-MO)
Thomas (R-WY)
Thune (R-SD)
Vitter (R-LA)
Voinovich (R-OH)

Of all the top-tier targeted Democratic races, only Sen. Chafee (R-RI) voted in favor the bill. With a veto more than likely, Democratic challengers now have one more salient attack to make in these key states. Even "second tier" races, like those of Jim Pederson's in Arizona and Jack Carter's in Nevada, should be made much more interesting if these guys launch an effective attack.

UPDATE: You can read Jack Carter's statement here. It really hits all the right notes.

You can read the Jim Webb campaign's statement here. Jim Pederson has a petition up on the issue. It's good to see some rapid response on this. Now how about the rest?
