Not only has Utah Democratic Congressman Jim Matheson voiced his option to skip the convention he has announced he will vote to hold Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. “It just compounds the tragedy when both sides play politics instead of releasing the facts. The Terry family, the public and Congress deserve answers.”
An unknown number of Democrats will defect. Thank the NRA for this. After the National Rifle Association announced that the contempt of Congress vote would be used in its tabulation of Congressional ratings a growing number of House Democrats have declared their intention to cross party lines on this vote. Let's face it, in Utah and many red states, the NRA plays a lot better than Obama.
