Jim Marshall Runs Far Away From Pelosi In New Ad

Politico is all over this new campaign spot from 8th district Congressman Jim Marshall (D - Georgia):

Jim Marshall Does Not Support Pelosi (Ad)

Georgia Democratic Rep. Jim Marshall, a conservative Blue Dog, offers some of the sharpest separation from the California Democrat this election cycle. His ad shows hippies dancing while a voice with a southern drawl says “Georgia is a long way from San Francisco.”

Marshall joins the likes of Rep. Bobby Bright (D-Ala.) in putting serious distance between himself and the speaker. Democratic Reps. Peter DeFazio (Ore.) and Scott Murphy (N.Y.) have indicated varying degrees of uncertainty about voting for a Pelosi in a new Democratic Congress.

Sometimes it just doesn't pay to be a Pelosi Democrat.
