Democrat Distances Himself From Pelosi
The latest ad from Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) attempts to distance himself from the national party as we have seen with many Democrats in conservative districts, but goes further than most Democrats usually dare to go. In this ad, he proudly proclaims that he “voted against Nancy Pelosi’s energy tax on Hoosier families.” A reference to the cap-and-trade bill that cleared the House, but will not see the light of day in the Senate.
I suppose the next question is will Travis Childers call Pelosi out like that? Like Donnelly, he has pointed out his “independent” record, but we have never really heard any negative comments from the Congressman toward the Speaker. I am guessing Donnelly won’t be the last Democrat to do this either, but will Childers feel like he needs to put more distance between himself and Pelosi…We will see.
