Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) said that the Democratic Party needed a new leader in the House of Representatives.
Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) called for a “change in leadership” among Democrats in order to reinvigorate the party on CNN on Thursday.
“We need a winning strategy, and I think the first step in getting to a winning strategy is a change in leadership,” Rice said.
Rice likened the current situation facing Democrats to a sports team that keeps losing but retains its coach.
“Who is the leader of the Democratic Party right now?” Rice asked. “No one really comes up with an answer.”
Rice named Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as possible leaders of the Democratic Party, but added that she did not consider Sanders a Democrat. Sanders calls himself as a Socialist Democrat, is an independent in the Senate, and caucuses with Democrats.
CNN host Chis Cuomo asked Rice who she looked to for leadership, but Rice could not name a Democrat she viewed that way.
Following Democrat Jon Ossoff’s loss to Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District on Tuesday, calls have risen from rank-and-file Democrats for the ousting of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
