Speculation and rumors are beginning to mount that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could be on her way out in the near future.
As noted by Axios, Pelosi has already suggested this is her final term as House Speaker.
And it appears there may be a new frontrunner to replace Pelosi if she does step down: Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Katherine Clark.about:blank
“Clark has built up a pile of chits in just under eight years in Congress, rising to assistant speaker — her party’s fourth highest-ranking slot in the House, and just one notch ahead of Jeffries,” Axios reported.
While speaking with Axios, Clark dodged when asked if she is the best person to be the next speaker.
“I don’t know, but I can tell you that those are going to be tall stilettos to fill,” she said.
No matter what happens with Pelosi, Democrats should be very worried that they will lose control of the House in the 2022 midterm elections.
According to a new poll from Democracy Corps, enthusiasm among Republicans to vote in the midterm elections outpaces Democrats by double digits.
