Skip to comments.More than 20 Democratic House candidates want Nancy Pelosi to step aside after 2018
Posted on 07/13/2018 2:33:48 AM PDT by Libloather
A close tally of Democratic House candidates who have said they wont support House minority leader Nancy Pelosi indicates Democrats would either have to win by a huge margin in order for her to hang onto her top leadership post in 2019 or those newly elected representatives would have to go back on a key campaign promise during their first vote in office.
Pelosi has already said she will run for speaker if Democrats win in 2018. But her path to victory in such a scenario is looking very narrow.
Vox has counted 23 candidates who have publicly said they will not support Pelosi for speaker should Democrats retake the House in 2018. Of those, 17 candidates are on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committees Red to Blue list, the list of Republican-held districts Democrats consider competitive. Red to Blue is the closest the DCCC comes to endorsing a candidate; those candidates get extra resources to help in their races.

I would post this on twitter, but banned.
Post the article or #walkaway will get you band? You could spell it wokawhey to screw with their heads....
either they have some integrity and don’t want to be led by such an evil woman,
they don’t have any integrity and don’t want to be led by such an evil woman WHO the American people have figured out is so evil .......(because this means she can’t get away with her evil tricks and lies anymore)
Aww come on dems, she’s doing a splendid job.
Are these the same twenty who wanted her to step aside in 2016, 2014, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2006, and 2004?
This is the cornerstone of the DNC...pretending there is change coming, and just being amused as people realize there is no change.
They could replace her and just tell her she is still in charge. She would not know the difference.
The uniparty has been quick to call into question Trump’s mental health, though there’s no evidence to do so.
Something is clearly physically and/or mentally wrong with Pelosi, dementia is not considered a mental illness BTW, and not a peep from the left, though whatever it is impairs Pelosi.
Pelosi is an evil disgrace. She should be made to clean the huge mess from the sidewalks of San Francisco.
Nancy knows the real truth—They are secret agents of Vladmir Putin!
The FBI gave her the files on these fake Democrats. ;-)
More than 60 million Americans want ALL Democrats to self-deport.
Best I can tell from that list no defections from the Clown Caucus. They are perfectly dumb, happy and paid off working Nancy’s Plantation.
If the Democrats take the House then Pelosi has the same problem that the next GOP speaker would have had - how to get 218 votes when a significant minority of your party don’t want to vote for you.

Uhh just like all the votes Peslosi didn’t get from RATS for Odungacare, and PDJT Tax cuts? That would be zero defections. Once the battle is over, whomever comes out on top to lead the Party, it is 100% blind loyalty or else. Marxist have no issue settling scores.
Yeah, good luck with that, dems. Once she retakes the Speakership, only a subsequent electoral defeat or death will make her give it up.
What she misses most is the Speaker’s 757 and well stocked government bar.
This'll be fun to watch. 2020 is going to be a LANDSLIDE for President Trump. Won't be a 49 state landslide like President Reagan but it'll be between 40-45.
It's gonna be FUN!!
yes, please... AFTER 2018.
by 2020 she will be so doddering it won’t even be a question
That was then, this is now. A significant percentage of the Democrat rank and file know that they won't get anywhere with the same old leadership of Pelosi and Schumer. Chuck's got an easier time of keeping his job - he just needs a majority of Democrats. Pelosi needs a majority of House members. The Republicans won't vote for her, just like the Democrats wouldn't have voted for Boehner. She needs 218 Democrats.
I want Pelosi to stay. She needs to continue to be the one of the kooky faces of the Democrat Party.
