Here Is One Sure Way To Hold Pelosi To Her Promise About Stepping Down

Written By BlabberBuzz | Wednesday, 01 December 2021 15:45

Eighteen House Democrats are leaving their posts to come January 2023, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s spot up top may be available for another Democrat if the party holds onto their razor-thin majority.

Pelosi, D-Calif., has yet to officially announce her decision for 2022. Last year, she implicitly reaffirmed a 2018 vow that her current term would be the last one to serve as Speaker of the House.

Pelosi's office did not respond to Fox News' inquiry on whether she would stand by her promise.

The Speaker asserted in 2018 that she would limit herself to two terms – as in four years – as the top lawmaker in the House. More recently, though, Pelosi has dodged questions about whether she will decide to run for reelection.

If Pelosi decides not to run in next year's election, she'll join a long list of Democrats who are bowing out ahead of what is projected to be a tough midterm election for their party.

This week, Rep. Thomas Suozzi, D-N.Y., became the 18th House Democrat to say he would not run for reelection in 2022. Suozzi is running for Governor of New York instead.

Suozzi's move will likely encourage Republicans hoping to flip his congressional district from blue to red in next year’s midterm elections. The GOP needs a net gain of just five seats to regain the chamber’s majority.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) predicts Republicans will have a “very good election” next year, implying the party has a good chance of taking both chambers of Congress.

The GOP winning control of both the House and Senate in 2022 would ultimately bring President Biden's agenda to a grinding halt.

“I think the fall of ’22 is likely to be a very good election for Republicans,” McConnell told reporters at the St. Elizabeth Healthcare and Life Learning Center in northern Kentucky.

McConnell hinted that he thinks the 50-50 Senate, which Democrats control because of Vice President Harris’s power to break tie votes, is likely to flip Republican. “I’m very optimistic. We have 50 Republican senators. I know what a real minority looks like. We had 40 after President Obama got elected. And so I think the wind is going to be at our back in both the House and Senate. I think there’s a great likelihood of a pretty good election next year,” he added.
