It's no suprise that Mel Martinez ranked 9th among Republican senators in voting most often with President Bush in 2006. But Florida's other senator, Bill Nelson, wasn't too far down on the list either.

Nelson ranked 7th among Democratic senators, according to Congressional Quarterly, our sister publication which compiles the annual list. He voted with Bush 60.3 percent of the time; Martinez voted with him 92.4 percent.

Among Republican House members, former Rep. Katherine Harris came in 3rd (100 percent) and Rep. Allen Boyd came in 13th among Democrats (61.5 percent)
