Democratic Senators Up For Reelection This Year

While we should be calling all Democratic senators and urging them to support John Kerry in his quest for a filibuster against Samuel Alito’s nomination to the Supreme Court, the following have terms expiring this year and should get some extra attention:
  • Daniel Akaka (D-HI)
  • Jeff Bingaman (D-NM)
  • Robert Byrd (D-WV)
  • Maria Cantwell (D-WA)
  • Thomas Carper (D-DE)
  • Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
  • Kent Conrad (D-ND)
  • Mark Dayton (D-MN)
  • Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
  • Edward Kennedy (D-MA)
  • Herb Kohl (D-WI)
  • Joe Lieberman (D-CT)
  • Robert Menendez (D-NJ)
  • Bill Nelson (D-FL)
  • Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)
I’ve intentionally excluded Ben Nelson (D-NE) because he’s a GOP-lite piece of trash who has already announced his support for Alito. Also note that Senator Paul Sarbanes (D-MD) is retiring but should still get a call.

Get on those phones, folks!
