Democratic candidate Randy Bryce, who is running for Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) open seat, wouldn’t say if he would support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) bid to become Speaker of the House if Democrats are successful in retaking the House in 2018 during an interview on Monday with NPR.

The NPR host asked Bryce whether he thought Pelosi was a liability for Democrats who are trying to flip Congressional districts in 2018.

“I think it depends on who you’re talking to. It’s not something I spend a lot of time thinking about,” Bryce said. “I’m extremely concerned about making sure we get another working person in Congress, and once I get there, I definitely would be anxious to see who wants to take the reins of the leadership position.”

The host followed up by asking Bryce for clarification about whether he was saying that he would not support Pelosi to be the Speaker of the House if Democrats are successful in retaking the House in 2018.

“Anytime that there’s an election in front of me, I take all the candidates, I look to see who’s running first of all, and then weigh them accordingly with interests of not just myself but it would be the people of the district,” Bryce said.
