Monday, Sen. John W. Warner will join Republicans in voting to block his own resolution condemning the President's new Iraq strategy. We're not sure what swayed him, but there were 32,000 signatures on a petition from people who said that they would refuse to give so much as a penny to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) if Republicans who voted for the Warner bill were later supported by the NRSC.
The message could be intrepreted to be, "You either stick together as Republicans now, or hang together in the next election."
Right now it appears that there are more than enough GOP members on board to filibuster a vote on the resolution.
(framer)Update- That would be all 49 Republicans. Possibly Lieberman as well. Finally, Leadership. Thank you John McCain.
