Is your senator up for reelection? Our stalwart commenter Nina gives us a list.

The following Democratic Senators are standing for re-election in 2006:

Alito supporters:
Byrd, Robert - (D - WV)
Nelson, Ben - (D - NE)

Filibuster opponents:
Conrad, Kent - (D - ND)
Nelson, Ben - (D - NE)

May vote no on Alito but won't necessarily vote no on cloture (aka Clueless Caucus):
Akaka, Daniel - (D - HI)
Bingaman, Jeff - (D - NM)
Cantwell, Maria - (D - WA)
Carper, Thomas - (D - DE)
Kohl, Herb - (D - WI)
Lieberman, Joseph - (D - CT)
Menendez, Robert - (D - NJ)
Nelson, Bill - (D - FL)

Not standing for re-election (so why not do the right thing?)
Dayton, Mark - (D - MN)
Sarbanes, Paul - (D - MD)

Republicans Olympia Snowe, ME and Linclon Chafee, RI are also standing for re-election this year.

Is one of these yours? Call 'em and tell them your vote depends on them supporting this filibuster. Just click on the 'Congress' link in the left sidebar to find out how to contact them.

An aside to Nina: If you'd drop me an email I'd be appreciative. Thanks for the info, darlin'.
