Calls for New Leadership to Fix a Broken Washington
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Today, 2nd District Democratic Congressional Candidate Mel Hall announced that he will not support Rep. Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House or for Minority Leader in the next Congress.
“I do not currently support and will not support Nancy Pelosi for leadership in the next Congress,” said Hall. “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,” Hall continued. “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,” Hall concluded. “Finally, Hoosiers in northern Indiana need a representative in Congress who will be a problem solver and serve as an independent voice.”
This announcement follows Hall’s first TV ad of the general election campaign, in which he pledged to use his Hoosier values to fix Washington. He rejects corporate PAC and lobbyist contributions, will not take advantage of any congressional perk, and will only serve three terms in Congress. Hall is a new kind of candidate, committed to fixing Washington with the Hoosier common sense he learned on the farm, in his church, and while leading a business.
