Out of 20 Democratic House candidates, only ONE wants Nancy Pelosi to remain the leader of the House Democratic Caucus.
That is a DISMAL 5% “thumbs up” ratio within the party and means her time as a “leader” will soon be OVER.
A survey of 20 Democratic House candidates found only one willing to vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to remain leader of the House Democratic Caucus, and one who would vote for someone else.
The other 18 declined to say whether they would vote for Pelosi, McClatchy reports. Kia Hamadanchy, the lone Pelosi supporter and a former Senate staffer, is running in California’s 45th district, which includes parts of Orange County.
By contrast, Kenneth Harbaugh, who is running in Ohio’s seventh district, was unequivocal in his opposition to Pelosi.
“We are overdue for a new generation of leadership,” he said. “We have a remarkable opportunity in front of us, and it’s going to take new thinking and new leadership to capitalize on it.”
“You are the captain of that ship and commander of that aircraft, and if it runs aground, it doesn’t matter where mistake was made … the captain is held accountable,” the former Navy pilot added.
Other candidates did not outright discount supporting Pelosi, but were extremely cautious in their comments on her.
“President Putin probably has a better approval rating in Georgia than Nancy Pelosi,” said David Kim, who is running in Georgia’s seventh congressional district, directly adjacent to where Democrat Jon Ossoff managed to lose to Republican Karen Handel in a special election in June.
