Neugebauer pledges to oust Pelosi

By Ben Lawson - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Congressman Randy Neugebauer says it's time for conservatives to regain control. His plan includes ousting democrat Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. To do so, Neugebauer pledged $250,000 to help conservatives from other districts win their campaigns. Money will come from his campaign as well as fund raisers.

Pam Brink with the Lubbock County Democratic Party says an extreme conservative message is no longer playing out across America, and she feels Pelosi is not the problem. "I think that she works very well with people who are willing to negotiate," Brink said. 

She called Neugebauer's announcement Tuesday somewhat egotistical. "I think it's interesting that Representative Neugebauer is so confident about the extreme conservatism of his own district that he is willing to take his campaign money and invest it in other places as if he doesn't need it at home," Brink said. 

"These are drastic times. These are times to take action. Many of us are mad; I'm mad, but it doesn't do any good just to be mad. We're mad and we're going to do something about it," Neugebauer said. 

He says people don't want the government to tell them what to do, and feels Pelosi has shut out democracy. That's why he pledged to help true conservatives around the nation win their campaigns. "I had people come up to me and say I want to give to this cause. So, I think when the people are so motivated right now, they're going to rally around this cause," Neugebauer said. 

Neugebauer will go to Hobbs, NM Thursday to campaign for Steve Pearce who is running for congress.
