    Republicans overwhelmingly view President Trump as likable, but Democrats aren’t as enthusiastic about likely new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But among all voters, both Trump and Pelosi aren’t very beloved.

    What rewards do conquering heroes or heroines usually receive? Applause. Lots of money. Near boundless power. And, if enlightened, these leaders are allowed to lead. Think Revolutionary War General George Washington who went on to become the first President. And World War II General Dwight D. Eisenhower — another President. But, Nancy Pelosi, the first woman Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, the one who delivered some of the largest Democratic House wins in almost half a century, the one who turned the entire Northeast and reactionary Orange County blue — what does she get? A challenge by a...

    **SNIP** Fudge, a former CBC chair and mayor of Warrensville Heights, Ohio, who has served in Congress since 2008, said in an interview with HuffPost that Pelosi “has been a very good leader” but believes “it’s time for a new one.” She also told the website that she believes Pelosi hasn’t been as strong enough of an advocate for African-Americans in Congress. Fudge’s potential bid has split members of the Congressional Black Caucus, some of whom had privately encouraged Clyburn and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, a rising star who is running for a lower level leadership position, to...

    Nancy Pelosi, bless her stupid heart, has invited Ohio Democrat and Congressional Black Caucus member Marsha Fudge to run against her for Speaker of the House. This is a dream come true! If Republicans sit back and do nothing House Democrats will elect a flaming leftist anyway, so why not help steer the process to elect a flaming leftist of their choice? They should help elect Marsh Fudge. The election of Marsha Fudge as Speaker could happen with Republican help. Making this happen presents Republicans with unique opportunities that don’t come around very often. Fudge got less than 2 %...

    The Hill ^ | 11/15/18 | Melanie Zanona and Mike Lillis
    Rep. Marcia Fudge is in a serious bind as she faces mounting pressure to challenge Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for the Speaker’s gavel — a move that could divide the Ohio Democrat's allegiances between the insurgency she supports and the Black Caucus she once led. A group of anti-Pelosi insurgents has been ramping up efforts to recruit Fudge, a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), amid criticism that the majority-male cohort is trying to oust the top-ranking female Democrat in the “Year of the Woman.” Pelosi allies have been deriding the rebels as “five white guys,” a...
  • Dem lawmaker: 'There's plenty of competent females' that can be Speaker instead of Pelosi

    Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said Wednesday that a congresswoman besides Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should be the House Speaker. “There’s plenty of really competent females that we can replace her with,” Ryan told reporters, before listing people such as Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) as potential candidates, The New York Times reported Thursday. His comments come as the battle for Democratic leadership in the House intensifies. Pelosi, who held the Speaker position from 2007 to 2011, expressed confidence on Thursday that she had enough support to be voted into the role. But many lawmakers are insistent about the idea of having...

    **SNIP** 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 didn’t 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 didn’t 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,”...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., challenged Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, and anyone else to give her a run for her money atop the House Democratic conference, declaring that she has the votes to take back the speakership if the vote were held today. "Come on in. The water's warm" Pelosi said during her weekly press conference when asked of a possible challenge from Fudge.

    She does not have the votes to be Speaker. Not unless a lot of people were lying last night. Watch, then read on. @edokeefe: "If the election were held today on the House floor do you have the votes to be elected Speaker?"@NancyPelosi: "Yes." Note that she’s asked about a letter and fires back, defensively, “Have you seen the letter?” That’s a reference to a document that may or may not actually exist formalizing the opposition of 17 Democrats to Pelosi as Speaker. The Democratic majority next year will be small enough that if those 17 really, truly, sincerely resolve...

    The anti-Pelosi insurgents are coalescing around a new strategy in their quest to deny Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) the Speaker's gavel: recruit a woman to run against her. The shift in approach comes as the rebellious group has been faced with a barrage of criticism for trying to take down Pelosi, who became the first female Speaker of the House in 2007, on the heels of an election cycle being dubbed the "Year of the Woman." Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.), one Pelosi detractor, hammered the argument that the California Democrat's promotion is the only way to secure female leadership at the...

Al Sharpton and thanked him for "saving America." Pelosi spoke at the National Action Network's (NAN) legislative and policy conference, where she laid out the Democratic Party's agenda before introducing Sharpton, who founded the non-profit civil rights organization in 1991. The organization was focused on turning out voters during the midterms. "We are going to be visionary. We are going to be unifying. We are going to be healing. We...

    Moments after arriving on Capitol Hill for freshman orientation, Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., went to the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. It wasn’t to speak with Pelosi about her run for House speakership. But to join an impromptu sit-in outside of Pelosi’s office to push for congressional action on climate change. “We need to tell her that we’ve got her back in showing and pursuing the most progressive energy agenda that this country has even seen,” Ocasio-Cortez said while standing in the middle of a group of around 200 protestors holding signs reading “Green Jobs For All.”

    New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the most prominent of the progressive millennials elected to Congress in the midterm elections, joined a protest led by left-wing groups Justice Democrats and the Sunrise Movement outside House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's personal office calling for House Democrats to put forward a climate plan. Protesters called for Democrats, who will have a substantial majority in the House next year, to create a select committee to develop a plan to switch to 100 percent renewable energy. The demonstration was spurred by a recent United Nations report that showed that the world only has 12 years to limit global warming to manageable...

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) is urging fellow Democrats in the House to support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) bid for Speaker, writing in a note to colleagues that not doing so could result in "a self-destructive leadership battle." Cummings writes in the note, which was obtained by Politico, that new Democratic members of the House "should not be pressured into voting against our party’s nominee." "That will only play into the hands of House Republicans and President Trump. Our new members promised their constituents to bring stability and common-sense to a dysfunctional Washington — not to be drawn into...

    A trio of likely House committee chairmen and prospective Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday laid out their oversight investigation strategy. Democrats secured sweeping victories this month in House races to secure a majority in the lower chamber of Congress. The party will soon wield the ability to launch investigations and subpoena witnesses as a result, setting up a potentially acrimonious next two years with the White House. Democrats on Sunday previewed some of those likely investigations, starting with whether Trump's actions impact special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and including possible interference with the media and the census. The White...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in an interview published Sunday that President Trump could still be impeached even if special counsel Robert Mueller does not indict him in his Russia investigation. "Recognize one point. What Mueller might not think is indictable could be impeachable," Pelosi told The Atlantic. Pelosi said, however, that she wants to see irrefutable evidence so that Republicans would join any impeachment effort. Some Democrats, notably top donor Tom Steyer, have argued that Trump has already committed impeachable acts. "What you have is a president who has declared war on the Constitution publicly this week....
