She joined five other Democrats to vote against the bill:
The DREAM Act cloture vote just failed in the Senate, 55 to 41.
The cloture vote was on the version of DREAM that passed the House earlier this month.
Among Republicans, only Sens. Bob Bennett of Utah, Richard Lugar of Indiana, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voted for the bill.
On the Democat side, Sens. Jon Tester of Montana, Max Baucus of Montana, Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Mark Pyror of Arkansas, and Kay Hagan of North Carolina voted against the bill.
The other Democrat to vote against DREAM was West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, who must face voters again in 2012.
UPDATE: Turns out Manchin didn’t vote against DREAM, as reported in the link above. He skated on the DREAM vote and DADT by claiming he was at a Christmas party. THIS is the kind of courage West Virginians like?
