Net Neutrality Bill Signers Lose ElectionsAll 95 of Them

first_imgLast night’s midterm elections weren’t pretty for supporters of net neutrality. Every single House and Senate candidate who signed a pro-net neutrality pledge last week lost their respective elections last night. There were 95 signatures in all.It seems a bit heavy handed to suggest that the outcome was somehow a referendum on net neutrality–given the state of the economy, wars, immigration reform, et al., the issue was, for better or worse, likely not at the forefront of too many voters minds. In fact, it’s probably safe to assume that many voters are still having trouble wrapping their heads around the important–if somewhat convoluted–issue.That said, the results likely don’t bode well for those hoping for some progress on the matter, come 2011.last_img
