WASHINGTON – Nancy Pelosis undeniable commandment to serve as the next speaker in the House may not be fully guaranteed after all, the long-standing Democratic leader reiterates her confidence that she will win back the coveted gabled.
A small but powerful contingent of democratic members – partnering with a large part of incoming freshmen as unseated Republican commander – could terminate the process by remaining against Pelosi as the speaker of the House.
The group, which contains long-term anti-Pelosi members as Reps. Seth Moulton, circles a letter against Pelosi. Consisting of a handful of current members and incoming freshmen who promised not to support Pelosi, the letter today has 1
7 signatures, according to a democratic source.

The group’s main problem is that they still have no willingness to actually challenge Pelosi. While Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge mulls a leap in the speaker, nobody has officially jumped in and left Pelosi unresolved.
Fudge confirmed Wednesday that her colleagues have encouraged her to run, but discussions are still ongoing.
“We will not allow Republicans to have a speaker, so there will surely be someone who will go up,” she said. “And these discussions are continuing now.”
Fudge, one of the members who signed the letter against Pelosi, described her frustrations with Pelosi and the current leadership in a HuffPost interview.
“I have no pitch because I have not decided to run this point,” she said. “But I would say this: My concern about caucus is the same concern I have about the country. Just as there is this subtlety of racism in the country, there is also our caucus.”
Fudge added that “to a certain extent,” Pelosi is an elitist, why she is often the Republican goal – which until 2018 had worked well in the election for the past eight years.
“If we are giving her credit for the winnings, why is she not responsible for all losses?” Fudge said.
A defiant Pelosi raised the difficult way forward during a press conference on Thursday and told reporters that she would easily win the speaker’s halt if the vote was held immediately math says something else.
“I have overwhelming support in my boyfriend to be a speaker in the Chamber,” said Pelosi. “And surely we have many many in our caucus who can earn in this capacity. I think about this time I’m the best person for it.”
For rumors she could potentially rely on the Republicans to vote “present” instead of opposing, Pelosi laughed at the view and she intended to “win the loudspeaker with democratic voices.”
And she welcomed a challenge from Fudge or someone else who thinks they are up to the task and say, “Come in. The water is hot.”
And Pelosi has more to do with than just the people who signed the sign. There is a lot of frustration from non-coastal members, who are primarily represented in the whole leadership.
“I think it is critical that we send a message to Democrats across the country that we do not leave for any group, any region, that rural America can be represented in our leadership,” told Illinois Rep. Cheri Bustos INSIDER.
“I think the management team is important,” added Bustos. “I know the focus is that everyone is being asked about the speaker’s race, but leadership is important in every way. And one of them is geographical diversity.”
