JAMESTOWN – Democratic Congressional candidate Eddie Sundquist of Jamestown says if elected to congress, he would not support keeping Nancy Pelosi in a leadership vote. Sundquist made his statement Thursday via a news release, saying he believes there is a need for a new generation of leadership in Congress.
Pelosi not only serves as the current minority leader, but in the past had served as the first female speaker of the House.
Sundquist also said its time for a new caucus in Congress that focuses squarely on building political power for real change in order to confront the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Sundquist is one of five Democrats in the 23rd Congressional District seeking the party’s nomination in a June 26 primary. The winner will move on to face incumbent Congressman Tom Reed, a republican from Corning who’s served in the house since 2010.
