Pocan, Moore back Pelosi for Democratic House leader

Pocan, Moore back Pelosi for Democratic House leader”

Under Pelosi's leadership, Ryan noted, Democrats have been reduced to the smallest Congressional minority since 1929, the year Republicans took a political hit when the stock market crashed.

Tim Ryan on Thursday wrote a letter to his colleagues in the House, announcing his intention to challenge California Rep.

"He announced Thursday that would run to be the House minority leader, launching a challenge against Pelosi (D-Calif.) Pelosi, trying to stave off a challenge, said earlier this week that she had support from the necessary two-thirds of members. We got to win seats there, upstate NY", he said.

This week, House Democrats pushed back their leadership nomination vote to the end of the month to give the party additional time to figure out whether they want to continue to move forward with Pelosi as their top voice in the junior chamber. "I'm just hoping for something positive, a good thing to come out of it", he said. "I know I can do that".

"While having a position in Democratic Leadership has never been my life's ambition, after this election I believe we all need to re-evaluate our roles within the Caucus, the Democratic Party, and our country", Mr. Ryan said.

Pelosi has held the top slot in House leadership since 2003, first serving as minority leader for four years before becoming the first-ever female Speaker of the House when Democrats won back control of Congress in 2006.

Ryan began receiving calls late last week from fellow House Democrats urging him to challenge Pelosi. In the letter, Ryan said he spent hours talking to House members about his plans. Nancy Pelosi for the role of House minority leader. "Tim Ryan's average constituent makes $57,000 a year". Vote for me and I will dedicate all of my energy to lead us back into the majority.

"No single person deserves more credit for House Republicans' historic majority than Nancy Pelosi", NRCC Communications Director Katie Martin said in a statement.

On the budget front, House Republican leaders said Trump wants a short-term spending bill to keep the government running through March. "I've been doing it my whole career". "We need leaders who can go into these Great Lakes districts" and relate to the people there.
