Tuesday was not a good day for Nancy Pelosi.
It was also not a good day for anyone who placed wagers on her to become the next Speaker of the House.
More than a dozen Democrats representatives signed a pledge on Tuesday to not support Pelosi’s bid to be the next Speaker, meaning that she could have to rely on help from President Donald trump and Republicans if she wants to make it, Fox News reported.
Sixteen House Democratic lawmakers circulated a letter Monday vowing to vote against Nancy Pelosi for speaker of the House, calling for “new leadership” — even though no challenger has stepped up to run against the California Democrat.
