Tracking the Democrats who refuse to endorse Pelosi for Speaker is getting to be tedious — because there's so many of them. This week, it' s Georgia’s Jim Marshall, North Carolina’s Mike McIntyre, and Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania, who didn't go quite as far as shunning her, but did call her a bad choice:

I hope that she is not a candidate for Speaker...I don’t think the issues that she’s pursued are good for the district I represent.

That makes eighteen total Dems who have either refused to vote for Pelosi for Speaker next term, or have strongly expressed — like Altimire — that they'd prefer not to have her in office.
