NASHVILLE - Sen. Lamar Alexander supported President Barack Obama’s positions on Senate bills in 2012 more frequently than any other Republican senator from the South, an independent voting analysis shows.

A study by Congressional Quarterly shows that on bills on which Obama had a clearly stated position, Alexander voted with the president 62 percent of the time.

Only Republican senators from Maine, Massachusetts, Alaska and Indiana had higher “presidential support” scores.

Alexander’s presidential support scores in recent years include 63 percent in 2011 and 52 percent in 2010. In both of those years, he voted with Obama more often than any other Republican senator from the South.

“Only Republican senators from Maine, Massachusetts, Alaska and Indiana had higher “presidential support” scores.”

Those senators being Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Scott Brown, Lisa Murkowski and Richard Lugar.

Three of which are now gone and a fourth had to fight for her political life and get democrats to vote for her as an independent when she lost her primary.
