Pelosi’s path back to speaker’s gavel is firmly in sight

Pelosi’s path back to speaker’s gavel is firmly in sight

But Pelosi has been deftly picking off opponents - including nine who announced their support Wednesday as voting was underway - a trend she'll need to accelerate in the weeks ahead.

"Here we are, a woman who has given her blood sweat and tears, who has sacrificed over and over and over again, who has had some of the most phenomenal accomplishments of any speaker to serve in the House", the Maryland Democrat said. She declined, they said.

"I never want to be disrespectful to anyone who has served, especially a woman who has broken glass ceilings", the 42-year-old former Central Intelligence Agency officer last week.

Nancy Pelosi refused to offer any concessions to her Democratic rivals during a high-stakes meeting this week; saying she would become a "lame duck" leader if she gave a timeline for when she would give-up the gavel should she becomes Speaker.

"The American people want us to address their bread and butter kitchen table issues".

"The evidence that it's five white guys is consistent with the sexism narrative, but it's not the only way to read that evidence", she said in an interview with INSIDER.

Those trying to oust Pelosi say they always knew the internal caucus election would fall in her favor. But Pelosi and other Democrats have dismissed such discussions as premature.

Still, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi voiced optimism about prospects for the legislation.

Pelosi's office did not return a request for comment. Much of it will be modeled on legislation that he and more than 160 House Democrats introduced in May. More than two-thirds of the class will represent red-leaning districts while others, like Rep. -elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, were elected on leftist platforms in deep blue districts to replace longtime Democratic incumbents.

Political groups would need to disclose donors, and members of Congress would be barred from serving on corporate boards. "But she's only giving things to people who can deliver".

For Tlaib, listening appears to be enough: "that's what I ask for right now at this point".
