Through the years I have noticed that it takes a significant amount of courage to stand solitarily against the collective will of a body.
Knowing he had absolutely nothing to gain by abstaining, and that it would probably cost him his Senate leadership role in the Agriculture, Rural Affairs, and Homeland Security Committee and the Committee on State Affairs, Senator Estes had the character and the courage to stand alone against the collective will of the Senate majority by not following the herd. He abstained from voting on a very popular bill among Senate Republicans; a bill I would have likely voted for.
