Yet another major Democratic congressional candidate is running away from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Roy Herron, the Democratic candidate in Tennessee's 8th Congressional District, says he won't vote for her to continue as speaker if he’s elected and Democrats remain in control of the House, Politico reports. Herron says he wouldn’t support House Minority Leader John Boehner for the position, either.

Pelosi, Herron, Boehner, Tennessee, House"I think both of them are too extreme," Herron said in a speech, according to the Jackson Sun.

There seems to be a good reason Herron came out against Pelosi. He’s in a close battle with Republican Stephen Fincher for a seat that's important for Democrats to win if they hope to maintain their majority in the House.

Like Herron, who has the endorsement of the National Rifle Association, a number of conservative Democrats have criticized Pelosi in their campaigns.
