Democrat Kathleen Rice: Pelosi Has Got To Go

The Hill reports:

A Democratic lawmaker who supported House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) during her last leadership challenge now says “you’d have to be an idiot” to believe Democrats can take the House back from Republicans with her leading the party.

Rep. Filemon Vela told Politico on Wednesday that Pelosi’s leadership makes a Democratic majority in the lower chamber impossible.

“I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top,” Vela said. The two-term Texas Democrat supported Pelosi over Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) during leadership elections at the end of last November.

Vela pointed to Pelosi as a key reason why Jon Ossoff, the Democrat who unsuccessfully ran against Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s special election Tuesday, wasn’t able to win despite his efforts to make the election a referendum on President Trump.
