Senators up for Election

Thought you might want to consider their votes on suspending earmarks (pork-barrel politics) in this year’s election. A “NO” vote is against limiting the earmarks. A “Yes” vote is in the best interests of the individual taxpayer.
Class II - Senators Whose Terms of Service Expire in 2009
Senators in Class II were elected to office in the November 2002 general election. Their terms run from the beginning of the 108th Congress on January 3, 2003 to the end of the 110th Congress in January 2009. The Yes and NO indicated how they voted on establishing a moratorium on earmarks.

Hey Rick,

Thanks for the heads-up. I notice however, that the column of Republicans appears to cut-off on the right side. I wonder if that signifies anything? What do ya think?

(:D) Best regards...

Ummm... that should be "appears to BE cut-off on the right side". Sheesh!

The right side appears cut off on my browser too; must be a template thing...

Sorry for the table not displaying correctly. I redid the layout. Post is a lot longer, but you can see all the votes.

I don't spend as much time here as I probably should. The post looked good when I mailed it in.
