One of the top newspapers in California published an editorial Wednesday calling for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to announce immediately that she will not seek the speakership following the midterms in November.
The Sacramento Bee editorial board said the Republican Party is clearly the party of President Donald Trump and the Democratic party can’t be seen as the party of Pelosi and still win in November. The editorial went on to say that the San Francisco Democrat’s decision to seek the speakership if Democrats take back the House has become a distracting campaign issues, noting that Democrats need to gain at least 23 seats.
The article goes on to state the following:
The editorial pointed out that 45 Democratic nominees, including Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R., Calif.) Democratic opponent Andrew Janz, and ten incumbents, including Rep. Linda Sanchez (D., Calif.), have publicly said that they will not support Pelosi for speaker.
While Republicans have been castigating Pelosi for years in campaign ads, she has also been a frequent target of Trump in recent months.
The Free Beacon also quoted the following from the Sacramento Bee editorial:
“But if she truly believes what she says about how important it is for Democrats to retake the House so they can stop Trump, she must accept that it can’t be with her as speaker,” the editorial concluded.
