Senate Preliminary Vote on D.C. Voting Rights

The Senate voted 62-34 Tuesday to effectively bring the D.C. voting rights bill to the Senate floor.

The Senate voted 62-34 in a cloture vote Tuesday to bring the D.C. voting rights bill to the Senate floor.  The bill would give D.C. a voting representative in the House — which violates the Constitution — and also give Utah an additional seat.  Eight Republicans voted yea to overcome the fillibuster on the bill: Cochran (Miss.), Collins (R-Maine), Hatch (R-Utah), Lugar (R-Ind.), Murkowski (R-Alaska), Snowe (R-Maine), Specter (R-Pa.), Voinovich (R-Ohio).  Two Democrats voted nay: Baucus (D-Mont.) and Byrd (D-W.V.).
