Democrat Mike McIntyre is keeping his distance from Speaker of the U.S. House Nancy Pelosi as he makes a bid for re-election in North Carolina's 7th Congressional District.

McIntyre, whose district includes Cumberland, Duplin, Robeson, Sampson and Scotland counties, said last week that, if Pelosi runs again to be speaker, he plans to support her opposition.

McIntyre, who has voted against Pelosi for the position in the past, is running against Republican Ilario Pantano in the Nov. 2 election.
