Maryland Congressman Frank Kratovil's vote against health care legislation may not help him in a tough re-election bid, political analysts said.
The freshman Democrat's opposition to the health care bill will help establish him as an independent voice but probably won't win him any new supporters, analysts said.
Kratovil was one of 34 Democrats to vote against the bill Sunday night. He cited concerns about the cost of the legislation.
Harris faulted Kratovil for enabling U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to have a leadership role in the House, which he said paved the way for the legislation's approval.
