Payback: DCCC Pulls Ad Money for House Democrat Who Said He Wouldn’t Support Pelosi as Speaker

Don't mess with Queen Nancy. Democratic Congressional candidate Roy Herron (D) believes the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has pulled support for him because he has publicly stated he won't support Nancy Pelosi for Speaker.

The Hill reported:
A Democratic candidate for Congress accused the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) of pulling its support for his campaign because he said he wouldn’t support Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) as House Speaker.

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.
