Bart Stupak (D, MI-01) cuts and runs.
(Via The Business Insider) No question mark on this: Marc Armbinder’s first mention has been expanded upon here, and CBS News is now reporting it as well. This should surprise nobody: we’ve been expecting this announcement since Wednesday. Particularly since the Tea Party folks are going to – justifiably – claim at least the assist on this scalp*.
