John Dennis, a longtime Republican challenger of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in San Francisco, took to Twitter late Thursday to show just how deep the support for the liberal Democrat is in the district, even after she was caught using a shuttered salon in the city for a blowout.
“I live near the salon where Nancy Pelosi went for her mask-less wash and blow out,” Dennis wrote. “Right now people in my neighborhood are on Next Door vigorously defending….PELOSI. They’re mad at the owner of e Salon. Now do you understand why I’ve had some difficulty defeating her?”
Dennis lost to Pelosi during the general election for California’s 12th Congressional District in 2014 and 2012, never receiving more than 17 percent of the vote, according to Ballotpedia. During the district’s primary election in March this year, he received less than eight percent of the vote.
He wrote in a Twitter post how local residents were using Next Door, a social networking service for neighborhoods, to defend Pelosi and excoriate Erica Kious, the owner of eSalonSF.
