Pelosi Renounced by Candidates in Her Own Party
Advertisements [?]
PERRY, Ga. As if embattled Congressional Democrats did not have enough on their hands, some are opening up a new front in their fight to save their seats against Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House and a leader of their own party.

Representative Jim Marshall, a Democrat here in central Georgia, spent much of a debate on Thursday night renouncing Ms. Pelosi, whose liberal views and San Francisco district have always been anathema to this region.

Pelosi was never my choice for speaker, Mr. Marshall said, eliciting boos from a skeptical audience in an arena here at the Georgia National Fair. Mr. Marshall actually voted for Ms. Pelosi as speaker but said he had not wanted her for the job and would not vote for her again.

As the midterm campaign barrels through its final weeks, more Democrats many but not all in conservative districts in the South are backing away from Ms. Pelosi and declaring their independence.
