WASHINGTON A growing number of Democratic congressional candidates are bailing out on Nancy Pelosi as they try to inoculate themselves against Republican attacks on the House Minority Leader.
"I'm not supporting Nancy Pelosi," Democrat Andrew Janz, who is running against Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told NBC News in a recent interview.
"I think she's done a lot of good for the party; I think she's done a lot of good for the country," he added. "However, I think it's time for a new generation of leaders to go to Washington, and this is with respect to both Democrats and Republicans. I think the country, and my district in particular, is hungry for change."
Janz is one of about a dozen Democratic candidates who have publicly signaled they would not support Pelosi since Conor Lamb won a special election earlier this month. Many others candidates have demurred on the question.
In Pelosi's home state of California, arguably the central battleground for the House this year, a survey of 34 Democratic candidates by The Mercury News found only two willing to publicly commit to voting for Pelosi to be their leader if they make it to Congress next year.
Pelosi herself has not yet asked any Democratic candidates for their support, a Pelosi aide told NBC News, suggesting that retaking the House overrides any other concerns for her even as some senior members of her caucus have called on her and other party leaders to step aside.
