Rep. Heath Shuler of Waynesville said this morning that there is “no communication” between the Blue Dog Democrats and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Appearing on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” program, Shuler said “there's been really no communications whatsoever” between his group and the California Democrat, Politico reports.
“We still have not had the connection between the Blue Dog members and the leadership,” said Shuler, who challenged Pelosi, in a symbolic vote.
He said Pelosi didn't go to the Blue Dogs meetings. He said Pelosi would not be welcome in the districts of other centrist Democrats but he said other House leaders such as Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryaldn and Assistant Leader James Clyburn of South Carolina would.
