Here’s a Northeastern Democrat ‘No’ Who Still Sounds Like a ‘No’

He wasn’t mentioned as a potential Pelosi Suicide Squad member, but for some reason, I figured John Adler, New Jersey Democrat, would be one of the most likely House votes to flip from “no” to “yes.” Probably because he’s the lone New Jersey Democrat to vote “no.”

Of course, Adler is also running for reelection against a 330-pound, former Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle.
