Within the past hour, the Massachusetts Senate defeated an amendment offered by Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) to close the loophole by which unions are able to give $15,000 to a single candidate in a single year. The vote was 10-28, with all 4 Republicans in support, the Democrats splitting 6-28 against, and Senators Gale Candaras (D-Wilbraham) and Therese Murray (D-Plymouth) not voting*.

*In general, the Senate President rarely casts any roll call votes.
