Nancy Pelosi’s career is on the rocks.
She expected to cruise into the position of being next Speaker of the House.
But the last person anyone ever expected may have just driven the final nail in her coffin.
Nancy Pelosi Faces Opposition To Becoming Speaker of the House
Democrats won the majority in the House of Representatives.
Nancy Pelosi stuck out eight years as minority leader for this very moment.
She thought it would mark her return to power.
Instead, it could be her career’s death knell.
Over 50 Democrats campaigned on opposing Pelosi for Speaker of the House.
They promised their constituents they would vote against her.
Now 17 Democrats have signed a letter announcing their opposition to Pelosi.
And to make matters worse for Pelosi, this is just the floor for her opposition.
More Democrats wanted to vote against her, but were not comfortable going public with their opposition.
Pelosi got the hint that her opposition was stronger than she realized when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led 200 left-wing loons to protest in her office over so-called “climate change” legislation.
Ocasio-Cortez and the militant leftists who won election in 2018 don’t care what happened the last time the Democrats tried to pass this economy-killing legislation.
Pelosi rammed it through in 2009, but the Senate never took it up.
Dozens of Democrats lost their seats because they voted to roll the US economy back to the Stone Ages by strangling the energy sector to death with new taxes and regulations.
Democrat Congressman Seth Moulton said he is “100 percent confident” the rebels have the votes to topple Pelosi.
“I’m a busy person, but I will be the speaker of the House no matter what he said,” Pelosi fired back.
Opposition To Pelosi Grows
The opposition to Pelosi lacked one thing – another candidate for Speaker.
Now they may have one.
Marcia Fudge – a black Congresswoman from outside Cleveland – said she may throw her hat in the ring.
“People are asking me to do it, and I am thinking about it,” Fudge told cleveland.com in an exclusive interview. “I need to give it some thought and see if I have an interest. I am at the very beginning of this process. It is just in discussion at this point.”
Because of the Democrats reliance on black voters and identity politics, Fudge could be Pelosi’s worst nightmare.
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus believe they have been shut out of leadership.
They could join the anti-Pelosi freshmen in supporting Fudge.
Fudge also implemented identity politics as a selling point for her candidacy.
“When you look at the people who support this party the most, they are women and African Americans and especially African American women,” she explained. “We keep talking about diversity, but there is nothing diverse about the top of our ticket. We have to not just talk the talk, but walk the walk.”
That could spell trouble for Pelosi.
Younger Democrats place “diversity” at the top of their values pyramid.
It is the end-all, be-all for them.
And now Pelosi could be on the wrong side of their fight for “social justice.”
