“For the second time in nine months, the Senate today passed a bill that would loosen President Bush’s restrictions on human embryonic stem cell research, but once again falling short of the 67 votes needed to override a promised veto.” Sen. John Sununu (R-NH), the critical swing vote, sided with President Bush and voted against stem cell research.

UPDATE: Blue Hampshire has more on Sununu.

UPDATE II: Towleroad notes on the very day conservatives voted against this bill, a medical study was published documenting how hematopoietic stem cells were used to cure insulin-dependent diabetics.
