Meet Nancy Pelosi’s Replacement


26,474 views

Rumors of Nancy Pelosi retiring have been in the news cycle for the last year and for a good reason too.

Pelosi has had several staffers resign and her physical abilities have also been primary evidence that the longtime lawmaker is set to call it quits.

Despite all of this, Nancy is still running for election in November but that isn’t stopping Democrats from gunning for her position.

One lawmaker, in particular, that is aiming to take over the reins from Nancy is Rep. Adam Schiff.

The Washing Post reported that Schiff is strategically putting together a plan to appease both progressives and establishment Dems in order to be the Dems new leader in the house.

The Conservative Brief dropped these details:

Rumors continue to swirl that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “expected” to retire or “step back” after November’s midterm elections.

A new report reveals that California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff is positioning himself as heir to Pelosi’s speakership if she chooses to retire after Republicans likely win back the House. Pelosi, for her part, has announced that she will seek re-election in November.

The Washington Post reports that Schiff’s efforts have “focused on consolidating support among his home base” in California, but that he “has not made an explicit ask for endorsements.”

Instead, the Post says Schiff “is gauging members’ interest and planting the seed that leading the caucus is his goal.”

The outlet adds that Schiff has reached out to progressive and minority-led congressional groups but that the response to some of that outreach has been “tepid.”

Other Democrats reportedly gunning to lead the House Democratic Caucus if Pelosi steps back include Democrat Reps. Steny Hoyer, James Clyburn, and Hakeem Jeffries.

These rumors have become so loud that apparently Democrats already have several successors in mind to potentially replace Pelosi.

“I think we want leadership that bridges some of the different ideological wings of the party, that is committed to listening to all of the perspectives, that will be capable of helping move the Senate or things that have stalled in the House. But whoever it is, I hope they would adopt progressive positions and also listen to the broad caucus and build consensus,” California Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna told the Post.

People had the scoop too:

California Rep. Adam Schiff is reportedly positioning himself as heir to Nancy Pelosi’s speakership, if she chooses to retire from her role following the midterm elections.

The Washington Post reports that Schiff’s efforts have “focused on consolidating support among his home base” in California, but that he “has not made an explicit ask for endorsements.” Instead, the Post says Schiff “is gauging members’ interest and planting the seed that leading the caucus is his goal.”
