Stupak Schedules, Postpones Press Conference, Part II

STUPAK SCHEDULES, POSTPONES PRESS CONFERENCE, PART II…. Yesterday, Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) scheduled a Capitol Hill press conference for 11 a.m. (ET). It wasn’t clear what he’d say at the event, but it had to do with his bloc’s willingness to support health care reform.

Shortly before it began, Stupak cancelled.

Today, Stupak scheduled a Capitol Hill press conference for noon (ET). It wasn’t clear what he’d say at the event, but it had to do with his bloc’s willingness to support health care reform.

Shortly before it began, Stupak cancelled again.

Whether this is encouraging or discouraging is something of a mystery, but there’s no shortage of activity on this front. Consider this an FYI, for now.
