WASHINGTON (AP) Sixteen Democrats whove opposed Nancy Pelosis quest to become speaker released a letter Monday saying they will vote for new leadership when the House picks its leaders in January, underscoring a significant threat to her effort to lead her partys House majority in the next Congress.
The letters release suggests that rather than spending the next six weeks focusing on a fresh agenda to present to Americans, House Democrats could be consumed with a bitter and attention-grabbing internal leadership fight.

Music to my ears. I want the Democrats to go Far Left.
They’re holding out for bribes.
“Make it worth our while, Nancy, and we’ll back off.”
Sixteen - Wow! - I am so impressed. That is 16 out of how many? What percentage is that??
She can lose only 18.
To hold on, she would need GOP support.
Again, Alex Occasional-Cortex is too young to be Speaker (praise kek).
It would be Marcia Fudge if the insurgents back her bid.
Just think she already commissioned a trophy shop to make even bigger gavel this time. I hope it gets used just like Hillarys firework show did
Which CINC has publicly promised her, just to twist the shiv in her leveraged ass.
Fudge was temp DNC chief while it was imploding around DWS.
The fix is in,
She will allow 17 of crazies to vote for another to please their base, but everyone else will fall in line
They have already gone full commie, not sure how further left they can go
I think this challenge is coming from her right actually, some of the “moderate” Democrats from swingy-er districts.
She may need GOP support? Then she’s not worried.
Surely, Cortex could be speaker for at least one of the three branches of Congress, couldn’t she?
I don't know. I'd pay good money to see Alexandria Infrequent-Cortex wield (hold, like, with her hands 'n stuff) the big hammer thingy.
Sixteen is a good number. Get 9 more ‘Rats and all the Republicans, and Nancy goes packing.
Wouldn’t that be a hoot.
