Democracy for All Amendment Blocked

People for the American Way reports than the Democracy for All Amendment, which survived an attempt to block it from advancing to debate in the U.S. Senate by a 79-18 vote a few days ago has been blocked today. It got 54 votes, six shy of cloture, on its historic first ever up-or-down vote.

Update: It should be noted that every Republican senator present voted against the amendment, weak as it is. This underscores the importance of getting out the vote on November 4 and, in particular, not letting the GOP take over the U.S. Senate.
