Organizers gathering signatures for a letter they say will show the strength of their opposition
Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, one of the leaders of a small Democratic contingent opposing Nancy Pelosis bid for speaker, said Tuesday he is 100 percent confident the group has enough commitments to block the California Democrat from being elected speaker on the floor.
The anti-Pelosi group has been gathering signatures from new and returning members on a letter that calls for new Democratic leadership. It also notes that the signatories will not back Pelosi during the January floor vote for speaker.
Moulton suggested they already have enough signatures to prevent Pelosi from getting 218 votes but declined to specify exactly how many.
The whole point of the letter is to accelerate this process so that it doesnt peel out on to the floor, he said. Shes the one thats trying to drive this to a floor vote. We want to make it clear before it comes to that.

Speaker is not Majority Leader , it is Speaker of the entire house. She is due to get her Speakership back.
well THIS is going to be fun!
Hopefully, the gop will support this aged loon for speaker (that is, if any of them survive the “provisional” vote recounts).
The GOP should unanimously support her. Why allow a more eloquent Socialist to take the gavel when Ms. Gaffe-A-Minute is ready and willing to resume damaging her partys interests? :)
They better be careful, or Nasty Nancy will have them all impeached.
“Moulton suggested they already have enough signatures to prevent Pelosi from getting 218 votes but declined to specify exactly how many.”
I’m guessing fewer than 50. All he needs is about 50, assuming that the GOP also votes against her.
But that is a big assumption, and I don’t know it will pan out. The GOP might not vote for her, but why bother to vote at all?
No, vote with the upstarts! Heklp them defeat Pelosi!
The more radical the House leadership is the more America can see who they really elected!.................
It’s hard for a grass roots group to beat the Elitist Rich White folks in the House to block Pelosi.
The GOP should vote with the radicals to defeat Nancy Pelosi.
That way the American people can see what lunatics they have elected ......................
I know how badly these people want to eat their own. They’re purist commie nutbags, and they will ruin the rat party for us.
Hey Nan, do you hate the wall more than you love being speaker?
They’ll all be good little “Nancy Boys”.
Are you sure America cares?
I heard Ocasio-Cortez said she herself doesn’t want to be speaker. She said she didn’t want to bite off more than she can chew, since she just got elected to Congress.
They don't give a shit except for their stupid TV shows and sports.
Best thing will be to retire pelousy ASAP!
I just feel sorry for the good Republicans that will have to keep their engines on idle.
If she promises no impeachment maybe the republicans will vote her in.
Rat Fights! Get your popcorn.
