Feingold Amendment Fails on Procedural Vote

The Feingold Amendment to cut off funding for the war lost 29-67 on a procedural vote. Following are the Senators who voted in favor:

Akaka (D-HI), Biden (D-DE), Boxer (D-CA), Byrd (D-WV), Cantwell (D-WA), Cardin (D-MD), Clinton (D-NY), Dodd (D-CT), Durbin (D-IL), Feingold (D-WI), Feinstein (D-CA), Harkin (D-IA), Inouye (D-HI), Kennedy (D-MA), Kerry (D-MA), Klobuchar (D-MN), Kohl (D-WI), Lautenberg (D-NJ), Leahy (D-VT), Menendez (D-NJ), Mikulski (D-MD), Murray (D-WA), Obama (D-IL), Reid (D-NV), Sanders (I-VT), Schumer (D-NY), Stabenow (D-MI), Whitehouse (D-RI), Wyden (D-OR).

The candidates for the Democratic nomination all voted for it, as did John Kerry. It is unusual here in Michigan to see Debby Stabenow make the more liberal vote while Carl Levin let us down.
