LZ: House Democrats who oppose House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s becoming the next speaker released a letter on Monday detailing their opposition to her.
“We are thankful to Leader Pelosi for her years of service to our Country and to our Caucus,” said the letter, which was obtained by Politico.
“She is a historic figure whose leadership has been instrumental to some of our party’s most important legislative achievements.”
Pelosi is assumed to be the next speaker, given her past experience.
She previously served as speaker for a few years before conservatives were able to regain control of the House. She continued her role as the party leader in the chamber afterward as minority leader.
But there’s been a growing movement among progressives to replace her.
“We also recognize that in this recent election, Democrats ran and won on a message of change,” the letter also said. more
