UPDATE 8:24 p.m.: Kanjorski and Donnelly are both 'yes's. Boucher and Sanchez remain the odd members out.
UPDATE 4:30 p.m.: With the Stupak deal going through, Dahlkemper, Driehaus, Rahall and Mollohan now appear to be 'yes's.
There now remain fewer than 10 vulnerable Democrats who are undecided on the healthcare bill. Here’s a recap:
-Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.) – was thought to be a pretty firm no until recently. Represents one of the most conservative districts held by a Democrat.
-Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper (D-Pa.) – unclear where she stands, but we know abortion language (she opposes federal funding) is a big issue for her.
-Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) – said he couldn’t support public funding of abortion, but so did Rep. Chris Carney (D-Pa.), and Carney has decided to support the bill.
-Rep. Steve Driehaus (D-Ohio) – sounds a little firmer that Carney and Donnelly if Stupak concerns aren’t met. His office reaffirmed Saturday he is a no unless something changes on abortion.
-Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) – has taken the same tack as Driehaus, but he’s a chairman, so if leadership needs him, he may be more willing to sign on.
-Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) – faces challenges from the left and right this year. Continues to be mum.
-Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-W.Va.) – faces a more difficult race than his West Virginia colleague, Rahall.
-Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) – sounds like a ‘no,’ but she has broken late before. After missing some votes Saturday, she will be there for the healthcare bill.
