House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wants you to know that if Democrats take back the House of Representatives, she isn’t going anywhere. This news is stunning, considering Pelosi’s many recent gaffes, as well as sources close to her saying she was ready to hand the gavel over to another Democrat, such as Massaschusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy.
The Boston Globe reports:
Nancy Pelosi wants you to know she’s not going anywhere. Despite grumblings from some Democrats and dismal approval ratings, the House minority leader aims to keep an iron grip on her leadership role, saying in an interview Tuesday that she fully intends to lead House Democrats if they recapture control of the chamber in November, as many prognosticators believe is likely. “We will win. I will run for speaker. I feel confident about it. And my members do, too,” Pelosi told a meeting of Globe reporters and editors. She was in Boston for a Democratic fund-raiser hosted by Representative Katherine Clark…“It’s important that it not be five white guys at the table, no offense,” Pelosi said, referring to the top two leadership spots in the House and Senate and the presidency. “I have no intention of walking away from that table.”…Pelosi’s determination to hang on could not delight Republicans more. The GOP, desperate to stave off a blue wave in November, is pounding Democrats in swing districts by linking them to the 78-year-old former speaker…And some in her own party are scrambling to disavow her.
Speaker Pelosi has had reoccuring episodes before the press, confusing President Trump with George Bush, whose term ended nearly a decade ago, as well as stuttering excessivly. The episodes have been attributed to fatigue, and other various health concerns. The former speaker’s name rallies Republicans, as they remember her for focing Obamacare through Congress, saying infamously that “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it….” . Her legacy has been a burden to Democrats, and Republicans will rejoice at facing their enemy once again on midterm battlefields.
