That’s what I thought. 34 Senators got up enough courage to say they would vote against it./

UPDATE: Senator Inhofe (OK) gave a statement a few days ago stating that he has at least 35 senators who oppose the Law Of the Sea Treaty (LOST)

31 who signed the Demint letter

2 who signed a joint letter in opposition (Senators Portman & Ayotte)

1 who said is he’s “still researching” but will oppose this session (Senator Alexander)

Plus, Inhofe stated that if Kerry brings this to a floor vote many more will oppose.

It will be interesting to see if either Senators Graham or Manchin begin to squirm. No one likes to “swing in the breeze” when the whip count is sealed. Getting on the record with LOST is not a good move.
