The Senate passed the bill by a 62-37 vote; Kander's campaign pointed to a report which noted $77,9000 in campaign contributions from members of a business coalition backing the Trans-Pacific Partnership to Blunt. "It is clear that Senator Blunt's vote is for sale to the highest bidder," said Kander's campaign manager. "Jason opposed fast tracking TPP because, unlike Senator Blunt, he believes a trade deal this big should get a full vetting from Congress instead of giving the President special power to negotiate on his own," the campaign manager said. "Missourians deserve a senator like Jason who will stand up to special interests and the President when Missouri jobs are on the line."
