EUFAULA, Ala. (AP) - Democratic U.S. Rep. Bobby Bright of Alabama says that if re-elected, he will not vote to give California Democrat Nancy Pelosi another term as House speaker.
Campaigning in Eufaula on Thursday, Bright said he also would not vote for House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio to be speaker.
Bright blames the deep partisan divide in Congress on the leadership of Pelosi and Boehner. He said he doesn't know who he would support for speaker, but it would be someone more moderate from either party.
Bright voted for Pelosi after his election in 2008 and his Republican opponent, Martha Roby, has made it an issue of her campaign.
