In a lesser-publicized McClatchy article, Clyburn for the first time gave some insight into who he is targeting, naming four Congressmen who previously voted No in November:

Clyburn took the unusual step of naming four former Democratic opponents who he’s hopeful are preparing to vote for the reform legislation: Reps. Brian Baird of Washington state, Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania, Bart Gordon of Tennessee and John Boccieri of Ohio.

“That’s four people right there who voted no before,” Clyburn said. “Why don’t we talk about them? Everyone’s talking about who we might lose.”


Looks like Clyburn is trying to put the screws to the four dems  by targeting. Hannity just said that he talked to Altmire’s office and they are angry with Clyburn, that he had not made up his mind.

RECENT UPDATES: Reps. John Boccieri, Charlie Wilson, Baron Hill, John Boccieri, Brad Ellsworth, David Wu, Lincoln Davis, Harry Mitchell, Tom Perriello, Eliot Engel, Gabrielle Giffords, Russ Carnahan, Bobby Rush, Michael Arcuri and Betsy Markey

House Democrats not on this list are expected to vote yes. However, some members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus who are not mentioned below have threatened to vote no unless the Senate’s immigration-related provisions are changed.
All House Republicans are expected to vote no.

If every member votes and all GOP lawmakers vote no, the maximum amount of Democratic defections to pass a bill is 37, which would lead to a 216-215 tally. Tally link below.
