Another ‘Never Pelosi’ Dem Appears to Hedge on Opposition

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA), who was one of the 16 House Democrats who signed a letter earlier this month saying that he will not support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) bid to be Democratic caucus leader, is now saying he would support Pelosi over a Republican for speaker if it comes to that.

“If it becomes as a choice between a Republican and Nancy Pelosi, I’ll obviously support Nancy Pelosi,” Lynch said, according to The Hill. “But I do think we risk losing the majority in the House — we risk having Trump elected for another four years — if the Democrats don’t offer a new direction in the Democratic Party.”

Lynch is at least the second Democrat who signed the initial letter opposing Pelosi to publicly caveat or change their opposition.

Rep. Brian Higgins (D-NY) said last week that he would be supporting Pelosi because “she agreed to rank two of his top priorities among the new Democratic House’s priorities.”
