Potential Democrat Speakership candidate Marcia Fudge fired off on her competition Nancy Pelosi on Thursday in a brutal critique.
As reported by breitbart.com
In an interview with the Huffington Post’s Matt Fuller, Fudge–the former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus who is toying with a run for the Speaker position against Pelosi–says that people do not like Pelosi because “they see her as an elitist.”
“And I think to some degree she is,” Fudge said. “She’s a very wealthy person. She raises a lot of money from a lot of other wealthy people.”
“Everybody wants to give her such big credit for winning back the House, and she should be here because she won. She didn’t win it by herself,” Fudge added, also saying: ““If we’re going to give her credit for the wins, why is she not responsible for all the losses?” She, per Fuller, pointed to how Democrats had lost 63 seats in the 2010 election and did not regain majorities in 2012, 2014, or 2016–not until 2018 did Democrats retake the House.
Fudge is one of the signers of a letter from Democrats pledging to oppose Pelosi’s speakership bid on the House floor in January. Depending on where some final races come down, Pelosi, in the best case scenario, can afford to lose just shy of 20 votes. The letter already, reportedly, per a previous story from the Huffington Post’s Fuller, has enough signatures to block her ascent to the Speakership, assuming its signers follow through on their pledge.
Looks like there may be serious trouble in paradise.
This could become a very pretentious race for Speaker of the House.
Nancy is a wealthy DemoCommunist dictating to the sheeple.....she is so out of touch with normal people living in her bubble life....she should NOT be the Speaker...as her ideas are pure poison!!!
Just the corporate dog and pony show...
