House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi just received another reason to worry — and it’s from another member of her own party.
Democratic congressional candidate Liz Watson just announced she will not support Pelosi’s bid to remain in her leadership position and is ready to see Pelosi step down.
“I won’t vote for Nancy Pelosi because we need new leadership in Washington,” Watson told CBS-4 in an interview.
Pelosi has been hanging on by a thread ever since her party lost the 2016 presidential election, and Democrats already made plans to not back the California Democrat is she’s re-elected in November.
“I’ve been out across the district listening to folks and they know that Washington is broken. They know that it is a system that needs to change. We need new leadership,” Watson continued.
In June, Politico reported that more than two dozen freshman Democratic candidates have promised to reject Pelosi and have called for new leadership.
Watson added, “I’m not going to vote for her because what I’m hearing from Hoosiers is they are ready for a new direction in Washington. They’re tired of the same old same old.”
Another Democratic congressional candidate, Dan McCready, expressed similar thoughts as Watson saying, “I’ve said since day one that I wouldn’t vote for Nancy Pelosi as speaker. I think we need a whole new generation of people.”
The list of Democrats sick and tired of Pelosi goes on, and on.
Even if the California Democrat is elected in November, she will not have many supporters.
The message has gone viral, and now it is time for Pelosi to step down.
