  15. Wicker (R-MS)

Senator Bob Bennett, who denounced the measure to a RedState contributor, did not vote at all.Friends, we can change the Republican Caucus in the United States Senate. But we have to unite behind the real small government conservatives out there. We must get on the same page to improve our own.Here is the list. We need these guys:Ken Buck in ColoradoChuck DeVore in CaliforniaMichael Williams in TexasMarco Rubio in FloridaRand Paul in KentuckyPat Toomey in PennsylvaniaDanny Tarkanian in NevadaMarlin Stutzman in IndianaMike Lee in UtahAnd if we can, I say we go with Ovide LaMontagne in New Hampshire and Christine O’Donnell in Delaware. Let’s go all and all in for small government conservatives. This year is our last best chance in a long time to get a slate of solid conservatives.
