UPDATE May 4th, how the Virginia Congressmen voted on Trumpcare here.Â
President Trump and Vice President Pence have worked hard to convince conservative members of the House to support his health care bill.Â Â Trump doesn’t have the votes yet although he may have them when they vote later this evening after compromises with the Freedom Caucus. Â How will Virginia Republicans vote?
As of now, we know there are three Republican Congressmen who will vote against the bill, 1st district Rep. Rob Wittman, Â 5th district Rep. Tom Garrett, and 7th district Rep. Dave Brat. Â Ninth district Rep. Morgan Griffith has not said how he will vote but as a member of the Freedom Caucus, he too may vote against the bill.
Two Republicans will vote for the bill, Rep. Robert Goodlatte of the sixth district and second district Rep. Scott Taylor.
Barbara Comstock, representing the 10th district, has not yet said how she will vote. Â Comstock’s district voted for Hillary and Comstock is likely to be the only Virginia Republican who could face a serious Democrat challenger next year. Democrats and conservatives will not like a ‘yes’ vote from Comstock but sheÂ is close Speaker Paul Ryan, so she’s in a tough position. It looks like we won’t know until tomorrow evening how Rep. Comstock will vote.
