Rep. Mike McIntyre, D-N.C., says Pelosi ‘probably not going to run for Speaker again’

Bear in mind that Congressman McIntyre is in trouble and probably desperate to say anything to save his campaign, but this is taking the increasingly common “I won’t support Pelosi” caveats to a whole new level:

Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) said that not only would he not back Pelosi (D-Calif.) for Speaker again, but also that he’d heard she would not seek another term in that position.

“From what we’re hearing, she’s probably not going to run for Speaker again,” McIntyre told WWAY-TV in North Carolina. “And if she does, I’m confident she’s going to have opposition, and I look forward to supporting that opposition.”

The seven-term centrist Democrat is facing Republican Ilario Pantano in one of the toughest reelection challenges of his career. The district, covering the southern tip of North Carolina, is seen as generally favorable territory for Republicans, though the nonpartisan Cook Political Report rates the race as a “lean Democratic” contest.
