In case you were wondering--and this may well become a campaign issue--New Hampshire Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen was NOT among the seven Democrats who infuriated the White House yesterday by voting against cop killing defender Debo Adegbile as the top lawyer in the Justice Department's civil rights division.
This would be a great trivia question.
Given seven choices, how many could you come up with?
Joe Mancin, of West Virginia, comes to mind immediately and he is in fact one of the seven.
If you were to guess the red state Democratic incumbents who are deemed to be involved in tough re-election battles, you would be mostly wrong.
Only Mark Pryor of Arkansas was one of the seven (not Hagan from North Carolina or Landrieu from Louisiana nor even Begich from Alaska, go figure; this vote could come back to bite all three).
The other five were: Chris Coons, of Deleware; Heidi Heitkamp, the surprise winner in North Dakota two years ago; Bob Casey of Pennsylvania (that makes sense); Joe Donnelly of Indiana; and John Walsh of Montana.
