They don't all cave!

Tom Udall (D-NM), who is running for Domenici's vacated Senate seat, has this to say:
Why I Voted 'No' On FISA
by Tom Udall for Senate
Fri Jun 20, 2008
The FISA bill we considered today would compromise the constitutionally guaranteed rights that make America a beacon of hope around the world.

Today's vote was not easy. I stood up to leaders of my own party and voted against this bill, because I took an oath to defend Americans and our Constitution, and it was the right thing to do.

That duty is most important when it is most difficult. We can protect our nation while upholding our values, but unfortunately, this bill falls short.
If you're so inclined, you can send his Senate campaign $$$ to encourage this behavior:ActBlue Eschaton Challenge.

I note that Udall is running for Domenici's vacated Senate seat - Domenici was NM's Republican Senator. Udall's challenger, Steve Pearce (R-NM) ran his primary campaign against Heather Wilson (R-NM) on the claim that Heather wasn't a real conservative!

Somehow, Udall isn't afraid that his vote against FISA will come back to haunt him in November.

Hooray for Tom Udall!
