Brown1.pngDaily Caller columnist Matt Lewis went digging through the roll call votes on judicial nominees while researching a post on Indiana Senator Richard Lugar. Lugar is facing a primary challenge for the first time since he was elected in 1976.

Lewis found that Lugar voted for all but six of a possible 98 appointments by President Obama, meaning he voted for the nominee 94% of the time.

Senator Scott Brown, another guy who is in the fight of his political life, voted for all but five of a possible 77 appointments that he was present for, meaning he voted for the nominee at the same rate as Lugar after being elected in early 2010. According to this account, Brown has the second most moderate voting record among Republicans when it comes to Obama appointees.

One of Brown's "no" votes was for the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.
