Senate Dems Voting Much More in Step Than GOP

July 12th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

“At the other end of the spectrum, the lowest party unity score among Democratic freshmen was registered by Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill (76.2 percent), who has the third lowest Democratic score overall. McCaskill, who ousted Republican incumbent Jim Talent, opposed the immigration overhaul legislation that the Senate recently scuttled. And last month, McCaskill was one of just four Democrats who voted against an overhaul of energy laws that called for increasing the Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards to 35 miles per gallon by 2020. McCaskill said the measure would hurt Missouri’s automotive and other manufacturing sectors.”
