PELOSI'S SACRIFICE:

Rating Change: NRCC Takes Spratt to the Mat (John McArdle, 11/24/09, CQ-Roll Call)

Democratic Rep. John M. Spratt Jr. is in his 14th term representing South Carolina’s 5th District and might have coasted to re-election in 2010. Then came the House vote on massive health care overhaul.

After months of talks and committee work, the chamber passed the sweeping overhaul bill (HR 3962) by vote of 220-215, with Spratt’s “yes” vote among them. [...]

Republican freshman state Sen. Mick Mulvaney announced his intention to challenge Spratt in early November. Mulvaney is a former one-term state House representative who is viewed as an up-and-comer in the state party.
