(CNN) - Freshman Rep. Walt Minnick of Idaho is the latest House Democrat to distance himself from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying he hasn't decided if he would back Pelosi again for speaker.
"I'm going to have to see who's running," Minnick responded when asked whether he supports Pelosi.
But Minnick also seemed to send a signal he will consider a change in the leadership lineup even if Democrats retain the majority but lose House seats, saying " when a party loses seats, that leads to leadership changes."
Minnick pointed to recent political history: "There's a precedent for leaders if they lose seats to assess whether they want to continue or not," he said, "and I will end up voting for whomever I think represents my views and interests of my district."
He won Idaho's 1st district by less than 5,000 votes in 2008 with 51% of the vote. Although the district has been historically conservative, the Cook and Rothenberg Political Reports currently rank the race as "lean Democrat."
