Dem Rep: Democrats Who Voted for Pelosi Today Will Pay in 2020

"It's going to be made that much more difficult if we don't show that we heard the voters and, you know, elect different people."

Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) suggested on Tuesday that House Democrats who flipped Republican-held districts in the 2018 midterm elections will have “very difficult race[s] two years from now” if they support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) bid to the next speaker.

Pelosi received overwhelming support from the House Democratic Caucus on Tuesday to be their speaker-designate.

A reporter asked Rice if she thought that Pelosi should be rewarded for helping Democrats win 40 seats in the 2018 midterm elections.

“That’s great. That tells you that there was a real sea change out there. Voters wanted new people here,” Rice said. “You had a great group of candidates running who were speaking directly to voters. They were not taking their marching orders from the leaders in Washington.”

“They spoke to directly to their constituents and they won very difficult races, and they are going to have a very difficult race two years from now,” Rice continued. “It’s going to be made that much more difficult if we don’t show that we heard the voters and, you know, elect different people.”
