Don't re-elect SOPA supporters on Tuesday

As elections draw near, remember that it's not just about the President. We'll vote on a number of Congressional seats too.

If you haven't take a second to get a quick read on your senator and representative, do that now.

As you're considering congressional leaders, take note of who never came to their senses with regard to SOPA, the bill that was going to break the internet. For quick reference, if you're in one of these states or districts, please pay extra attention.

Jon Kyl (AZ) is retiring
Lee Terry of NE was one of the original 12 cosponsors of SOPA:
Sen. Gillibrand (D-NY) gave a really weak retraction of her support for SOPA and co-sponsored PIPA.
Gallegly (CA-24) is not running.
Sen. Bob Menendez from New Jersey should be on this list.
If this was the only issue worth voting for, I would definitely vote against these incumbents. There are much bigger things at stake right now.
Thanks for this. Very helpful.
Senator Kyl is not running for re-election.

Congressmen Berman and Sherman are running against each other in California's "top two system." One of them will win, period.

Conyers (D-MI) is running in the 13th district now due to redistricting:'s_14th_congressional_district
I'd be very interested in seeing a followup post on which of these representatives won and which lost after Tuesday.
Pete King is running in New York's 2nd district due to redistricting.
Thank you, this is a very useful resource. Although it will not be the sole determining factor in my vote, I WILL take it into consideration as a major factor.
And yet my alternative to Brown is Josh Mandel ... no thanks.
I'd gladly send senator Feinstein home for SOPA support, but Elizabeth Emken is so wrong on so many important issues. Not to mention I doubt she would support free internet. So, pass.
I wrote my elected officials about SOPA/PIPA a while back. Only Nancy Pelosi wrote me a reasonable response, saying explicitly that she agreed that "these bills were not the right answer for innovation." Several of the other folks (including Feinstein) told me I didn't know what I was talking about regarding internets. I have an MS in CS/CE, worked for a search engine owned by a major book-seller right out of college, and now build really smart routers. I know how "internet" works.
