Vote to remove Stevens from U.S. Senate Republican Conference postponed

Stevens may not be headed back to the Senate in January, but he survived the threat of getting kicked out of the Republican Conference today. A vote was scheduled for this morning on whether to strip Stevens of his place in the Conference, and remove him from committee seats. But the vote was postponed since Stevens’ election results weren’t yet known. Some of his fellow Republicans say they don’t want Stevens in their caucus because he was convicted last month of failure to report gifts on financial disclosure forms.
