Every House and Senate candidate who signed a pledge to support net-neutrality rules lost his or her election on Tuesday, according to an analysis by Scott Cleland, a net-neutrality opponent.
Ninety-five Democrats signed the pledge, released last week. It was organized by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC). The pledge said signers would support strong net-neutrality rules on wireless and wired broadband networks.
Update: PCCC responded by saying that it is a positive sign for net-neutrality that 95 Democrats were willing to campaign on the issue. PCCC co-founder Adam Green said candidates did not campaign against net neutrality, "for the obvious reason that such a position is a big political loser."
