Second District Congressional candidate Mel Hall said he will not support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
In a statement put out Wednesday evening, Hall said, in part, "Washington is broken – and career politicians in both parties are to blame."
He said electing new leadership in both parties is a big step in getting Congress to work for the people.
Hall, the former CEO of Press Ganey Associates, will face Republican Congresswoman Jackie Walorski in the general election in November.
Below are Hall's full remarks:
“I do not currently support and will not support Nancy Pelosi for leadership in the next Congress. Washington is broken – and career politicians in both parties are to blame.
“People are working hard in the 2nd District, but Congress isn’t working for them. And, in my experience on the farm, as a minister, and in business, when something isn’t working you fix it.
“Electing new leadership – in both parties – is an important step in getting Congress to work for the people who elected them instead of simply helping themselves. Finally, Hoosiers in northern Indiana need a representative in Congress who will be a problem solver and serve as an independent voice.”
