Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-NV) is voicing a hint of dissent against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) continuing as Minority Leader — saying that she did vote for Pelosi in the leadership contest, but wouldn’t have actually run if she’d been in the same shoes:
“If I was the Speaker and I had lost 63 votes I would not have stood election. But the fact is she did, there was nobody to seriously challenge her,” Berkley said in an interview with Jon Ralston.
“If I were Speaker, I wouldn’t have,” Berkley added. “But she did and she had no serious opposition as much as I like Heath Shuler…”
