New York Rep. Brian Higgins said that he will not support Nancy Pelosi’s bid to maintain her role as House minority leader on Thursday.

“I will not support her,” Higgins said in an interview with the Buffalo News. “She’s listening, but this is my conclusion: She’s aloof, frantic and misguided.”

The New York Representative cited a weak collective Democrat strategy as a source of his frustration.

“I’m giving voice to a frustration that I hear every single day,” he said. “It’s members. I don’t want to call anybody out, but this is the conversation that is taking place.”

“Democratic voters, at least, and voters at large feel politically homeless, and it’s because we are not offering something affirmative to give people hope and something to invest in, in the way that we want to do things,” Higgins continued.

Pelosi has been consistently critical of President Trump. Earlier this week, she released a statement after President Trump’s summit with Kim Jong Un expressing her discontent with the outcome. (RELATED: NANCY PELOSI NOT SATISFIED WITH TRUMP’S DEAL WITH KIM JONG UN)

Pelosi has been the House minority leader since 2011. She served as the speaker of the House four years before that.
