Senator's Nephew Killed in Iraq

Marine Cpl Phillip Baucus -- a nephew of Sen Max Baucus (D-MT) -- has been killed in action in Iraq.

Cpl Baucus died in combat in al-Anbar province on July 29. Sen Baucus voted to authorize the use of military force in Iraq.

Only a handful of Congressmen have relatives serving in Iraq. Sen John McCain's son Jimmy volunteered for the Marine Corps last month. (Bloomberg)
