Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) said that he thinks a “viable” candidate will emerge after the midterm elections to challenge House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for speaker, should Democrats retake control of the House, during an interview with CNN on Friday.

CNN’s John Berman asked Ryan why he doesn’t support Pelosi being a transitional speaker.

“I think we need new leadership. I’ve been saying this since last year. It’s time for us to make a change, I think there’s a number of people in our caucus who want us to make a change,” Ryan said.

Ryan added that he believes there will be a viable candidate that will challenge Pelosi’s leadership after the midterms.

Berman asked Ryan if he would challenge Pelosi himself.

“I don’t have any intention on doing it. I think somebody will and somebody should,” Ryan said. “If we’re going to rebuild the blue wall, we need somebody who can speak to our base, but also talk to these Trump voters who are very disenchanted.”
