For Arizona's Senators, FINAL VOTE: New START, Old Story

We have been following the Senate debate on the New START Treaty between the U.S. and Russia, and how Arizona Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl have been part of a shrinking group of Republicans opposing ratification.

The final vote took place an hour ago (12:30, Arizona Time), and our Senators found themselves on the short end of the 71-26 vote to approve the treaty.

Worth noting, 13 Republicans in the Senate DID vote to approve it, and three others (Brownback, Bond, Bunning) did not vote.
