Democrats had a poor performance in the recent election and because of that Nancy Pelosi’s days as Speaker appear to be numbered.
According to The Daily Wire:
Things did not go well for House Democrats on Election Day.
While some races are still being tabulated, Democrats lost some of “their most vulnerable members and have not picked off a single Republican incumbent heading into Wednesday evening,” The Hill reported. After all the votes are counted, Republicans could end up gaining as many as 10 House seats.
The dismal performance — Democrats were expected to add seats, not lose them — has once again sparked talk of ousting 80-year-old House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The California Democrat has served in the House for 33 years and held two stints as Speaker, but her time at the top may be coming to an end — and that talk is coming from at least two moderate members of the party.
Two centrist Democrats told The Hill on Wednesday that they were “reaching out to their colleagues about backing one of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (NY), for Speaker in the next Congress.”
The Democrat lawmaker stated that Jeffries is the only one ready for the position and bridges moderates and progressives better than anyone while reiterating that most importantly he is not Nancy Pelosi.
