The Washington Post has analyzed the Republican caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives to try to understand its various factions. The factions range from representatives who won't vote yes on anything to representatives who stand squarely behind the speaker, John Boehner. I was curious to see which faction the Post had Rep. Renee Ellmers in.
They have Ellmers, who represents North Carolina's 2nd District, in the "Maybe Yes" faction. This is how it is described:
The largest of our five groups with 114 members (49 percent of the House Republican conference), this is a faction that has backed four of the six key votes. These are people who are almost always going to be behind the leadership — not a single person in this group voted against Boehner for speaker — unless there is a specific issue in their district (or their personal belief system) that keeps them from saying “yes”.
Here is the Post story.
