It’s official: Judd Gregg will vote against the stimulus package.
On the one hand this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. His refusal to vote for it even while he was the Commerce Secretary-designate — his recusal was effectively the same as a No vote on all cloture motions — indicated he was never really on board.
But having him now officially against the bill, the day after he dropped his own nomination to join the cabinet, should tell us where things will be going forward. A week ago he was a bipartisan member of the Obama Administration — and now he’s a solid opponent.
