    Pelosi May Already Have Her Replacement – A Family Member Who Has Never Held Elected Office

    Published on

    There is talk that Nancy Pelosi’s tenure as Speaker of the House of Representatives may be coming to an end if Republicans take back control of that body of Congress.

    For months, the rumors have been brewing quietly in the background. When Mark Barabak suggested in the Los Angeles Times in January that Christine Pelosi might follow in her mother’s footsteps, that was the time.

    “Republicans seem exceedingly likely to win control of the House in November. It seems exceedingly unlikely that Pelosi would happily settle into the role of minority leader, much less fall back as a workaday member of a shrunken, enfeebled Democratic caucus,” Barabak wrote at the time.

    “Would she time her departure to benefit her daughter by, say, requiring a snap election that would take advantage of Pelosi’s brand name?”

    After several months, as the election draws closer, speculation is intensifying. Democratic state senator Scott Wiener has been subtly positioning himself as a potential succession.

    But not too much, as Politico points out.

    According to Todd David, a former political director for Wiener, “Nancy Pelosi is so well-respected and so well-appreciated that no one is looking forward to seeing her leave, and the last thing anybody wants is to be viewed as making even the littlest insult to the speaker,” “From a pure practical, political point of view, no one wants to offend Nancy Pelosi.”

    Although 56-year-old Christine Pelosi hasn’t indicated that she plans to run for the House, Politico stated that she is “widely expected to pursue the seat if it opens.”

    No elective office has ever been held by Christine Pelosi. She worked as a prosecutor in San Francisco, served as John Tierney’s chief of staff, and was employed by the Clinton administration. She has served as both the chair of the California Democratic Party’s Women’s Caucus and a member of the Democratic National Committee.

    Adama Iwu, a political strategist who assisted in the We Said Enough movement’s leadership, said of the activist, “She’s very thoughtful about how she uses her name, because she knows it does have weight.”

    Christine Pelosi’s remark, however, has returned to haunt her. Pelosi tweeted three years after Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky was physically assaulted by a neighbor in 2017 that his “neighbor was right.”

    Paul made that observation in a tweet last month.

    Some anticipate that Christine Pelosi will have to compete for her mother’s House seat.

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    “Given the ATM that is San Francisco, this is going to be a brawl,” Max Szabo, a San Francisco-based Democratic consultant, told Politico. “No one is going to leave anything on the field.”

    John Avalos, a former member of the city’s Board of Supervisors and now a San Francisco Democratic Party official, said Nancy Pelosi, 82, will not dictate her successor.

    Once she announces her retirement, he said, “she becomes irrelevant in terms of determining who’s going to be replacing her.” CONTINUE READING…
