Nancy Pelosi Claims She Has 'Overwhelming Support' to Be House Speaker

Nancy Pelosi holds a news conference following the 2018 midterm elections

With Democrats reclaiming the majority after last week's midterm elections, House Republicans will relinquish the gavel, and Pelosi recently said she had "100 percent" confidence in reclaiming it.

"Winning 23 seats in a voter-suppressed, gerrymandered map was a wave - was a wave". "That's really a very big - nearly a tsunami".

"Dark hates light", she tweeted.

Ben McAdams has joined a chorus of Democrats who vow they won't support Rep. Nancy Pelosi for House speaker, amping up a fight for one of the most powerful positions in Washington.

"That didn't matter to me". Just because she has a sense of style doesn't mean Ocasio-Cortez has stacks!

"I have overwhelming support in my caucus to be speaker", she told reporters.

While she has asked the incoming Rules Committee chairman, Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), to address those proposals, she still hasn't signed on, and one of the leaders of the group, Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), told reporters Thursday that "nothing's changed".

So the people know, he is from Manchester but the people knows the team he supports?" I tried to hit the ball, it happens. Not only Man City - 10 points from Liverpool, a lot of points from the other ones as well.

"We're not feeling the love", she added.

"Come on in, the water's warm", she said, suggesting that she is unconcerned about a potential challenge, when asked about the possibility that the Ohio Democrat could launch a bid to become Speaker in the next session of Congress when Democrats hold the majority.

Pelosi did not appear anxious Thursday by the possible challenge from Fudge. "I think Nancy has been a very good leader", Fudge told HuffPost.

"I don't have a pitch because at this point I've not decided I'm going to run", Fudge said, "but I would say this: My concern about the caucus is the same concern I have about the country. Just as there is this undertone of racism in the country, there's also that in our caucus". In a quote tweet, she reminded her followers of the double standard women in politics face. "She understands what the American people want", Moulton told CNN Thursday.

"She's in touch with middle America".

If the past two years have taught us anything it's that the Republican Party in Congress today is a toxic mix of white nationalism and corporate greed led by people who will lie, cheat, and steal in order to hoard more wealth, more power for themselves and their billionaire donors. "She is someone that people will look at and say, that's the future of our party. And I don't think people look at our current leadership and see that right now".
