In what is becoming something BIGGER than just gaining the Speakership?
Nancy Pelosi seems to be attracting a widespread national Democratic backing not just for the Speaker job she’ll get…But also making her the voice of the opposition party to Trump and Republicans…
Some feel Democrats where sadly missing a point person…
It seems Nancy Pelosi is gaining support to be the person….
Washington Post: “While congressional leadership fights have historically revolved around insular matters such as committee assignments and rules changes, the battle over who will lead the newly empowered House Democrats has exploded into a national political campaign.”
“At stake is not merely the House speakership, a job second in line to the presidency, but who will emerge as the country’s most high-profile counterpoint to President Trump — who will set the strategy for investigating him, who will lead the opposition to his agenda, and who will be the face of the Democratic Party ahead of the 2020 campaign.”
“The country’s biggest unions, arguing that Pelosi is the best equipped to take on Trump, have lobbied Democrats to back her. Top donors have placed calls to lean on undecided members. Celebrities have weighed in as well, and prominent liberal activists have openly discussed fomenting primary challenges in the next campaign against the leaders of the anti-Pelosi opposition.“
