Democrat In Special House Election Looks To End Pelosi’s Reign As Party Leader


The Democratic nominee in the year’s first special congressional election said Monday that he’d like his party to replace Nancy Pelosi as its leader in the House, a stance that could undercut one of the Republican Party’s major campaign plans in 2018.

In interviews with Pittsburgh’s two major newspapers, Democrat Conor Lamb, a former U.S. attorney running to represent Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district, said that Congress needs “new leadership on both sides” and was clear that he meant an end to Pelosi’s 13-year role as House Democratic leader.

“My take is, if these people have been around for several years and they haven’t solved these problems that have been hanging around, it’s time for someone new to step up and get it done,” Lamb told the Pittsburgh Tribune.

  1. Again we see how it’s the DEMOCRAT party that are the racists, sexists, homophobes, etc… How do they have the gall to kick out a hard working female and replace her with an inexperienced male??? If the Republican party would dare do something like that, the world would end as we know it. The media would be apoplectic. Hypocrites hypocrites hypocrites!
