House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thinks she’s going to take Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s job after the mid-term elections this November.
“We will win. I will run for speaker. I feel confident about it. And my members do, too,” Pelosi told The Boston Globe in a Tuesday interview.
“It’s important that it not be five white guys at the table, no offense,” Pelosi said. “I have no intention of walking away from that table.”
If Democrats do retake the House, Pelosi is certain to face resistance from members of her own party who want her to step aside.
“I think there’s a strong desire out there in America for new leadership in Washington, not just getting rid of Republicans but getting new leadership in the Democratic Party,” Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton told The Globe.
Moulton has repeatedly called on Pelosi to quit her leadership post before November, so she doesn’t hurt Democrats’ chances in the midterms. If her interview with The Globe is any indication, Pelosi isn’t worried.
