The DADT Six

By on 12.18.10 | 1:10PM

Here are the six Republican senators who voted to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell":

Scott Brown (R-MA)

Susan Collins (R-ME)

Olympia  Snowe (R-ME)

Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)

Mark Kirk (R-IL)

George Voinovich (R-OH)

Only Voinovich, who is usually more conservative on social issues than economics, was a surprise to me.

UPDATE: Two more Republicans voted for the final passage of DADT: Sens. John Ensign (R-NV) and Richard Burr (R-NC), both surprises. The initial post referred to the six Republicans who voted to advance repeal by invoking cloture. All six voted for final passage.
