Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX) said that the current House Minority Leader could not lead the Democrats to victory.
Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX) said on Fox News on Thursday that Democrats could not win back the House of Representatives with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as their leader.
“In the context of winning in 2018, and taking the majority, I think it is pretty clear that Leader Pelosi does not help our candidates in those swing districts that are so necessary for us to win in 2018,” Vela said.
Vela also stood by his previous comments in which he labeled anyone who thought the Democrats could take back the House under Pelosi’s leadership “an idiot.”
“I think that if we are going to win, if we’re going to regain the majority in 2018, we have to have new leadership,” Vela concluded.
Pelosi has come under increasing criticism from fellow Democrats following Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff’s loss to Republican Karen Handel on Tuesday. Throughout the special election, Republican groups successfully tied Pelosi to Ossoff, convincing the Republican-leaning district to reject him.
