6th District candidate Carter asks Pelosi to step aside

BY ERIC MILLER • Sumner County Publications

Democratic District 6 Congressional candidate Brett Carter is asking U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to step aside for the good of Democratic candidates.

Carter, in an announcement made in Nashville on Thursday morning, said he sent a letter to Pelosi requesting her to step aside.

“I think it is incumbent on Speaker Pelosi to step aside,” Carter said.

Citing a report in the Murfreesboro Daily News Journal, where Carter was described to have an albatross around his neck in the form of Pelosi, said the divisiveness she generates hamstrings his and other Democratic candidates’ abilities to focus on the issues.

“I don’t believe my situation is unique,” Carter said.

If elected, Carter said he would not cast his vote for Nancy Pelosi to be speaker.

It is this first vote that Carter said many of the public is focused on, rather than his qualifications as a candidate.
