That’s the word this afternoon:
Dem Rep Jim Marshall, a prominent Blue Dog who voted No last time but was believed to be open to backing the Senate bill, is now a definite No, his spokesperson confirms.
“Marshall is a no,” Marshall spokesperson Doug Moore tells our reporter, Ryan Derousseau.
Marshall is one of 39 Dems who voted No last time that reform proponents were hoping to flip to Yes, in order to make up ground and get to 216 votes. The confirmation that Marshall will vote No reduces that pool a bit.
I hear Rep. John Barrow is against it as well, but there is nothing concrete on that at this time.
