The United States Senate did not end up voting on a no-confidence vote for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales Monday, because senators failed to get the mandatory 60 minimum votes to consider the move. The measure failed 53 to 38 on a roll call.
Senators in our region voted along party lines on whether to consider the resolution against Gonzales.
In Ohio, Democrat Sherrod Brown voted yes, while Republican George Voinovich voted no.
Both West Virginia Senators Jay Rockefeller and Robert Byrd voted to consider the resolution. Both are Democrats.
In Kentucky, both Republican Senators Mitch McConnell and Jim Bunning voted against considering the resolution.
