Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi didn’t think it would come to an end this soon. But her Democrat majority is perilously close to doom.
According to Breitbart News, “The walls are caving in around Pelosi’s hopes of keeping the wafer-thin majority as her Democrats continue to announce retirement or seek higher office, leaving their vulnerable seats instead of fighting a tough reelection.”
Per the report:
In March, Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX) and Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) were the first two Democrats to announce that they will not run for reelection and retire. Both Democrats’ districts are in border states, which have both been hammered by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and other Republican groups due to the surges in border crossings.
In April, Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL), a former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) chairwoman and one of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, announced she would not seek reelection. Bustos narrowly won her seat in 2020, while former President Donald Trump won her district in 2016 and 2020. Illinois is also losing a congressional seat after the Census.
In addition to those names, also out for next term are Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL), Rep. Val Demings (D-FL), Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA), and Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI).
There are even reports of Pelosi herself leaving office as she allegedly has no desire to serve from the minority position.
