Newly Elected Dem Rep Flips, Now Says She Will Support Pelosi for Speaker


WFB: A newly elected Democratic congresswoman from Connecticut says she will support Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) for House speaker after previously saying she would vote against her. Jahana Hayes, who was elected to represent Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District earlier this month, discussed her decision Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“I came into Washington with an open mind. I said I want to hear all the information, and I want to cast a vote that’s best for the people in my state. No one has asked me for a vote other than Nancy Pelosi. You know, last week we were here for orientation and we caucused and I was of the mind, put up or shut up,” Hayes said. “Nobody came to me, and at this point I think it’s unreasonable for anyone to expect a vote when they haven’t even asked. So I’m prepared to support Nancy Pelosi in caucus tomorrow when votes are cast.”

Hayes added that she met “face-to-face” with Pelosi last week, and the House minority leader explained her platform.

“I expressed my concern about, you know, people have spoken. They are looking for shifts in leadership. They are looking for some generational change. Many of the things I spoke about on the campaign, and we have to acknowledge that. We have to make a path where we are bringing people along and positioning people for leadership,” Hayes continued. “And she acknowledged that she thought that was important, and she flat-out asked me for my support. And I told her I need to hear all the information and I was waiting just to hear if anyone else would step up, if anyone else would ask for a vote, if anyone else would present a contrast to what she was saying. And that never happened.”

During her final primary debate in August, Hayes said she would not support Pelosi for speaker.

“I would not vote for Nancy Pelosi,” Hayes said.

After the midterm elections, Hayes began to walk back her previous position.  more here

  1. After hearing Ocasio-Horseteeth turned on a dime to support MussoPelosi,
    it’s no surprise her iron fist works on the rest.

  2. what a way to go through life. No standards, no scruples. Screw anyone and everyone. Like a hooker but with no morals.

  3. Self-abasement is a socialist attribute.
    To subscribe to the nihilistic totalitarian dialectic you cannot be burdened with logic, reason, or self-respect – you must be ready, willing, and able to sacrifice everything for the cause.

    Go back and re-read accounts of the Soviet Show Trials and the ludicrous “admissions” and “confessions” of those about to die. It took more than just torture to elicit those foolish self-abnegations – it took a core belief that their convictions and executions were “just.”
