CAFTA Passes Senate 54-45: House to Vote After July 4th Recess
July 1, 2005
After a long day of debate yesterday, the Senate voted 54-45 to approve DR-CAFTA. Until very recently, many thought that DR-CAFTA was a done deal in the Senate. Yet the trade pact passed by only 9 votes the closest margin ever for a Free Trade Agreement in the Senate.
Study the vote: (10 Dems voted for it! 12 Rebups against!)
