Loretta Sanchez’ Chief of Staff confirmed to the OC Register that she would make it to Washington in time to vote on the health care bill today.

I’d feel more comfortable putting her in the undecided category at this point, based on what I know. Groups like the Courage Campaign and OFA are really pressuring her.

In addition, I think you have to pull Rick Boucher into the undecided column. He’s been wavering for days after coming out as a pretty sure no.

That would make the vote count 206-207, with 9 undecideds and 9 possibly in the Stupak bloc. Stupak scheduled another press conference that was postponed; stay tuned.

UPDATE: Incidentally, here’s what Sanchez tweeted on March 16, 5 days ago:

1 in 4 Californians lack health insurance (including over 190,000 in Orange County). Major, major drag on state & local economy!
