Democratic Congressional Candidate: National Democrats won’t give me money because I won’t support Pelosi

Well, you’ve got to respond to the bad news somehow:

State Sen. Roy Herron (D), who’s running for the opening seat held by retiring Rep. John Tanner (D) in Tennessee’s 8th congressional district, suggested the DCCC’s decision to cancel ad buys in the race was tied to his refusal to back Pelosi.

“This morning The Jackson Sun reported for the first time what I’ve repeatedly told citizens: I will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker,” Herron said in a statement. “If the DCCC pulling ads is the price of independence and following my conscience, so be it. That’s the kind of congressman I’ll be.”

The real reason that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is pulling out of Herron’s race that he’s got a snowball’s chance in hell. But he gets an “A” for effort!
