bi-partisan Senate voting…

Interesting to figure out this voting configuration.  The major news coming out of this is presumed 2020 Presidential candidate bidder Cory Booker voted no, against an amendment Bernie Sanders proposed that would allow pharmacists to import identical, but much cheaper, prescription drugs from Canada and other countries, alienating liberals who might otherwise go big with some grillings Booker has for a Trump appointee.

Republicans who side with Bernie Sanders, as against “Big Pharma”.

Boozman (R-AR)
Collins (R-ME)
Flake (R-AZ)
Grassley (R-IA)
Heller (R-NV)
Kennedy (R-LA)
Lee (R-UT)
McCain (R-AZ)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Paul (R-KY)

The libertarian-tinged or “tea party” Lee, Paul, and Flake.  McCain represents a lot of retirees.  Collins sits on the Canadian border.  Dean Heller may be eyeing a race of some vulnerability in two years.

Democrats who vote nay, and maybe sidestep the issue with “nuance”.

Bennet (D-CO)
Booker (D-NJ)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Carper (D-DE)
Casey (D-PA)
Coons (D-DE)
Donnelly (D-IN)
Heinrich (D-NM)
Heitkamp (D-ND)
Menendez (D-NJ)
Murray (D-WA)
Tester (D-MT)
Warner (D-VA)

Who’s running in 2 years off this list?  Donnely, Henrich, Heitkamp, and Tester gots to get their campaign cash from somewhere.
