CNN airs Nancy Pelosi profile amid House speaker fight

CNN airs Nancy Pelosi profile amid House speaker fight

And in an interview with ABC affiliate WCVB over the weekend, Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Massachusetts, another member of the group, said he'd "obviously support Nancy Pelosi" on the House floor if forced to choose between her and a Republican. Stephanie Murphy and Darren Soto seeking broad rules reform in the U.S. House of Representatives responded Friday to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's appeasement effort by saying it is not good enough and they can not support her for House Speaker.

Said Ms. Bash: "Nancy Pelosi certainly knows her power more than any woman I've ever covered in politics".

Rep. -elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY said in a tweet: "I hope that we can move swiftly to conclude this discussion about party positions, so that we can spend more time discussing party priorities".

Five incoming freshman signed a letter in support of a challenger to Pelosi, but the group did not include freshman New York Rep. -elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who came out in support of Pelosi this week.

She also announced her hope that the Democratic Caucus would formally adopt a version of the National Football League's Rooney Rule, which requires interviewing at least one person of color for every top staff position.

Pelosi believes that if Democrats had tried to impeach Bush when she was speaker, voters may never have elected Barack Obama as president in 2008. "People sent us here to get things done, not "negotiate" with an admin that jails children and guts people's healthcare".

After one potential rival stepped aside, Pelosi is expected to easily win the majority from her ranks.

Republican Rep. Tom Reed, co-chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus, has said that he was willing to vote for Pelosi if she committed to congressional reform. Pelosi was speaker from 2007 through 2010 when Democrats held the majority and has been the party's leader since 2003. Lynch's suggestion that he would vote for Pelosi over a Republican on the House floor suggests he is ready to back her if she wins the nomination.

Others signing were incumbents Jim Cooper of Tennessee; Bill Foster of Illinois; Brian Higgins of New York; Stephen Lynch and Seth Moulton of Massachusetts; Ed Perlmutter of Colorado; Tim Ryan of Ohio; Kurt Schrader of OR and Filemon Vela of Texas.

"Leader Pelosi remains confident in her support among Members and Members-elect", spokesman Drew Hammill said in a written statement.

Smart Republicans know that Democrats are very likely to shoot themselves in the foot when they get a chance at controlling anything, and young Dems are proving this by attacking California Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi has activated an aggressive campaign for the job involving House colleagues, prominent outside Democrats and party-aligned interest groups.

At the same time, a leader of the anti- Pelosi movement, Seth Moulton, said he wants to hold talks with Pelosi to discuss changes to the leadership team.

The small group of House Democrats struggling to prevent Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi from becoming the next House speaker got a boost Monday when Gil Cisneros, a Democrat who just won a race in a conservative district in California, announced he would sign a letter pledging not to support Pelosi on the floor. "In addition, I have assured Members our committee ratios will be fair and our committees will have representation from all corners of our Caucus", she said.

"Our outstanding victory from sea to shining sea has made this truly a Thanksgiving of Hope", Pelosi wrote in the letter, which was distributed by her office. "You don't run away from the fight", Pelosi said. "I don't want to shake the confidence of the millions of people who stepped out to vote".
