Hamilton County Clerk of Courts Aftab Pureval (D) became the latest candidate to pledge not to back House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as speaker. Pureval: “I’m running for Congress because I genuinely believe we need a new generation of leadership. Washington is broken. It’s toxic, and it’s on both sides."

He’ll face Rep. Steve Chabot (R) in November in a heavily gerrymandered seat in Cincinnati. (Cincinnati Enquirer)
