Bart’s bloc keeps dwindling down. Here’s the latest defect:
In a big step forward for House Dems, Rep Marcy Kaptur of Ohio, one of around a half dozen Stupak holdouts, just confirmed that she’s voting Yes on the Senate bill.
Kaptur made the announcement on WTVG-TV, the ABC affiliate in Toledo, at around 9:50 AM.
The interview is not yet online but I confirmed Kaptur’s quotes with WTGV investigative reporter Zack Ottenstein.
“Yes I will,” Kaptur said, when asked if she’d be supporting the Senate bill.
There have been numerous reports already that dems have the 216 needed to pass the bill, so that makes news like this even bigger. Imagine this bill passing by 8 or 10 votes with a lot of Stupak’s people voting in the affirmative. It will put a big ding in the whole abortion debate as it pertains to this legislation.
