Lincoln Chafee: No to Alito

This was my guess about a week ago, that Chafee would vote “No.” It was based on a post I read in the conservative Rhode Island blog in which they quoted Brian Nick of the Republican National Senatorial Committee saying on CNN that Lincoln Chafee did not need the Republican party to get elected in Rhode Island. His constituency, when all is said and done, is a percentage of the minority Republican party in the state, and a large swath of the unaffiliated (which I am) and Democratic voters in the state.

Chafee is the only Republican to announce he is breaking with the Republican party to vote his conscience on Alito.

Thank you, Senator Chafee, for remaining loyal to your constituency.
