29 House Democrats Are About to Be Promised the World

House Republicans note, “As of today, at least 69 Democrats have expressed opposition to the Speaker’s health care bill.”

The Democrats have 258 seats and Cantor has said no Republican will vote for the bill. Pelosi can lose 40 and still have a bare 218–217 majority. Which 29 are going to have their arms twisted the most?

John Adler of New Jersey will not be one of them.

Adler’s congressional district includes parts of Burlington County, Ocean County, and Cherry Hill in Camden County.

Republican Chris Christie won Burlington County Tuesday night by two percent after Corzine won it by five percentage points four years ago; Christie won 66 percent of the vote in Ocean County. Four years ago, Jon Corzine won Cherry Hill, 13,615 to 8,630. This year he won it 11,108 to 9,453.
