Higgins Flip Flops, Will Now Back Pelosi for Speaker

Rep. Brian Higgins (D-NY), who was one of the 16 Democrats that signed a letter saying they would oppose House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) bid to be speaker, is now reversing course and backing Pelosi.

According to The Buffalo News Higgins is now supporting Pelosi because “she agreed to rank two of his top priorities among the new Democratic House’s priorities.”

Those “top priorities” for Higgins were “a major infrastructure bill early in the next Congress, and that Higgins will be able to take the lead as House Democrats also work to pass his proposal to allow people to buy into Medicare at the age of 50.”

This is another win for Pelosi and her efforts to become the next speaker of the House. On Tuesday, the one congresswoman mulling a challenge to Pelosi, Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH), announced she would also back Pelosi.
