Rahall delivers abortion ultimatum

Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) is standing with the Stupak bloc.

Rahall told the Charleston Daily Mail that the lack of abortion language in the Senate bill is a deal-breaker for him.

When asked if he would vote against a bill that didn't include such language, Rahall said, "Correct."

He joins Stupak and Reps. Steve Driehaus (D-Ohio), Chris Carney (D-Pa.) Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) in explicitly saying that the lack of abortion language will lead to their 'no' votes. At this point, if Democrats lost all of them, they could only lose one or two more Democrats.

Republicans hope to go after Rahall with former state Supreme Court Justice Spike Maynard.
