Ms. Fudge is thinking about challenging Mrs. Pelosi, said Assistant Minority Leader James Clyburn (D., S.C.), who spoke with the Ohioan on Thursday. Mr. Clyburn, the top-ranking black lawmaker in the House, said he didnt encourage or discourage Ms. Fudge, who is also black, to run. Both are members of the influential Congressional Black Caucus, whose ranks include about 45 House Democrats.
A representative for Ms. Fudge didnt respond to requests for an interview. She told Cleveland.com, her hometown news outlet, on Wednesday that she was giving it some thought. I am at the very beginning of this process, she said. It is just in discussion at this point.
Ms. Fudge is also a member of the progressive caucus, which represents the Democratic Partys left wing. She was first elected to the House in 2008 to represent a swath of northeast Ohio near Cleveland, and was chairwoman of the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

The Demagogic Party remains riven by a multi-gang war, which will become much more dangerous if the Sheeple continue to vote them into power (or if they manage to pull of coups via ballot box stuffing and other fraud) -- but the upside is, we get to watch with glee as it turns from figurative bloodshed to actual bloodshed.
What an unfortunate name. LOL!
I’m surprised but Nancy’s coronation is in serious doubt.
Of course they can’t have a man “take it away from a woman” hence Marcia Fudge.
I don’t know guys, I think that’s a person we can demonize very effectively they might not be doing themselves any favors.
I think the rats will work this out before hand but IF there is fight on the floor the GOP conference must decide if they wanna take sides, only 17 or so rat votes will be needed if every Republican votes for one of the rat candidates. Or we could allow a deadlock and multiple ballots to occur.
As some of you have intimated we could even start the fun by voting for say, Ocasio-Cortez out of the blue, tempting nutters to join in, only 17 or so would need to. Gamesmanship. Why the hell not?
In other news I heard Nancy wants the “vacate the chair” rule gone.
“Come on Maxine, dont let that racist old rich and corrupt white woman who lives in a mansion hold you back.”
Guess you haven’t seen Maxine’s mansion. It’s not in her district, but I will bet you it’s every bit as big as Pelousey’s place in SF.
Maxines house is probably as large, but not the land.
We all know the ‘white liberal elite’ will win - because blacks are window dressing that props up the real power...
I was being sarcastic and facetious. I was basically mirroring them.
The better-armed faction will win.
