Candidates' State Delegations and How They Voted

John McCain, for all his bluster of leadership and delivering the votes, not a single person in the Arizona congressional delegation voted for the bailout plan. From Politico:


Democrats — Giffords, N; Grijalva, N; Mitchell, N; Pastor, N.
Republicans — Flake, N; Franks, N; Renzi, N; Shadegg, N.

UPDATE: In Illinois -- though Obama had staked less on his personal ability to win over doubters -- the bill split the delegation 9-9, with one abstention. Democrats favored it narrowly, though former Obama antagonist Bobby Rush and his supporter Jesse Jackson Jr., like may in the Congressional Black Caucus, voted no.

UPDATE: Ryan Grim notes that Rush "went to the desk after the vote was over and changed from yes to no. So he was with Obama and the leadership if they needed him.
