Mississippi Sen. Trent Lott co-sponsored an amendment Wednesday that would have eliminated a round of base closures scheduled for 2005.
Lott attempted to attach the measure to the defense authorization act. However, it failed to pass by a ten-vote margin.
Lott spokesman, Lee Youngblood, called it a ''good shot'' and said Lott will continue to try to defeat the base realignment and closure process that he considers unfair.
