Desperate House Dem Calls In For Help From Nancy Pelosi After Promising To Run Grassroots Campaign
Earlier this week, House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a San Francisco fundraiser for Emilio Huerta, a candidate in California’s 21st district.
Huerta previously vowed to run a local, grassroots campaign. A January headline in the Bakersfield Californian was titled “House Hopeful Keeping National Party At Arm’s Length—For Now.” But apparently Huerta became too desperate for Pelosi’s financial support after he failed to obtain his party’s endorsement at his party’s state convention.
So much for Huerta’s insistence that he would keep Pelosi and the locally despised DCCC out of the race.
