Rep. Richard Neal, D-Mass., faces a challenge for re-election from a 30-year-old Massachusetts mayor campaigning on the House Ways and Means Committee chairman's inaction on obtaining President Donald Trump's tax returns, NBC News reported.

"I think his action is emblematic of a kind of leader, or lack thereof, that's he's been over the last 30 years," Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse told NBC News about Neal's authority to obtain President Trump's state returns.

"I know people here in western Massachusetts, and people around the country, are frustrated with the way in which he's handled this issue from day one. I mean, Democrats took back the House, and it took [months] to put a letter together. I know it doesn't take us that long to put letters together at City Hall when we have to look at legal issues.

"So, when you look at the timing here, we're now very unlikely to see any result before the 2020 election, because Congressman Neal dragged his feet. We also have people in New York that have worked tirelessly to give the American people access to his New York state tax returns."

Rep. Neal has held off using the New York state law to obtain his state tax returns because it might jeopardize the ability to obtain federal returns, according to the report. President Trump filed a federal lawsuit this week to block Rep. Neal from using the state law to obtain the federal return.

"It's unfortunate that there are folks who aren't living what he's living, making statements and comments and Monday morning quarterbacking the situation," a source told NBC News of Rep. Neal.
