Once again, so many House Dems on the list, so few Senate Dems. Also, looking through Phil Bryant's donors, one thing keeps jumping out at me: How many contributions he got from Mantachie, Fulton, Iuka, know, the part of the world that Mr. Franks represented for the last twelve years, and several prominent Senators. They're voting with their pocketbooks, obviously.
