Republican presidential hopeful John McCain hasn't voted in the Senate since April 8.

That's when McCain and presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama joined 90 other senators in voting to limit debate on a proposal aimed at stemming the tide of home foreclosures. Two and a half months later, the Senate voted again Tuesday to limit debate on housing legislation, a new version this time (HR 3221). Neither McCain, R-Ariz., nor Obama, D-Ill., showed up for the 83-9 vote.

McCain was campaigning in California, where he called on the federal government to embrace green technologies for vehicles and buildings. Obama talked about his energy policy during a campaign stop in Las Vegas.
