"This morning, The Jackson Sun [a local paper] 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 Tuesday. "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.”

Herron’s views on Pelosi may be irrelevant. He trails Republican Stephen Fincher in the polls.
