Another Never-Pelosi Dem Flips, Now Supporting Pelosi

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA), one of 16 House Democrats who signed a letter saying they would not support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) bid to be speaker of the House, will now support Pelosi’s bid when the House votes on it in January.

“Leader Pelosi has assured me that the priorities of average working families will be the priorities of the upcoming Congress,” Lynch told The Washington Post on Friday.

Lynch is just the latest anti-Pelosi Democrat to change their position on the matter ahead of the scheduled January 3 House vote.

In November, the House Democratic caucus overwhelmingly voted for Pelosi to be their candidate for speaker. Pelosi still needs to flip 18 Democrats who did not support her in order to gain the necessary votes to become speaker.

According to the Post, after Lynch’s flip there are still 22 House Democrats on record saying they will oppose Pelosi and 18 who have dodged the question.
