Can She Survive? Some Democrats Mull Ousting House Speaker Pelosi After Dismal Election Showing


Things did not go well for House Democrats on Election Day. While some races are still being tabulated, Democrats lost some of “their most vulnerable members and have not picked off a single Republican incumbent heading into Wednesday evening,” The Hill reported. After all the votes are counted, Republicans could end up gaining as many as ten House seats. The dismal performance — Democrats were expected to add seats, not lose them — has once again sparked talk of ousting 80-year-old House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The California Democrat has served in the House for 33 years and held two stints as Speaker, but her time at the top may be coming to an end — and that talk is coming from at least two moderate members of the party.
