Pelosi’s Replacement Revealed?

The Democrats are about to show their true colors.

While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is still keeping the details of her retirement as secretive as possible, Democrats are now salivating over her seat and hoping to take control of it.

According to The Hill, a younger generation of House Democrats are currently fighting to push aside top Democrats such as Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip James Clyburn. Sadly for younger Democrats such as Ocasio-Cortez and others it appears that both Clyburn and Hoyer have no plans about standing down or stepping aside after Pelosi makes her exit.

Speaker Pelosi has lead her party for 19 years now and many believe that after this upcoming midterm election there will be no chance that Democrats maintain control of the House. This is likely the perfect time to exit for Pelosi and allows the Democrats to restructure their chain of command.

House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth confessed, “My gut would tell me that this would be her last term. I see a lot of people who would be the presumed successors donating a lot of money to their colleagues.” 

Another lawmaker noted, “If we’re in the minority. I can’t imagine her wanting to do it.”  

Other Than Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip James Clyburn other top Democrats that could take Pelosi’s seat are: Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.) and Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.)
