Politics Daily reports that North Carolina Democrat Rep. Heath Shuler says he may run for Speaker against Nancy Pelosi if his party keeps control of the House. The disclosure came in his debate with Republican opponent Jeff Miller:
During the debate, Shuler said, “If there is no viable alternative [to Pelosi], I will be running for speaker of the house.”
Later, Miller pressed the congressman for details. “You’re saying you would not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker?” Miller said.
“If that’s the alternative, I will be voting for myself,” Shuler answered.
“If she’s there, you wouldn’t vote for her? You’d vote for yourself?” Miller clarified.
Shuler replied, “I don’t know how I can be any clearer. I can do as good a job as anybody in the U.S. Congress, because I can actually bring people together.”
