[Ed. – Poor gal, she really is losing it.]
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on Thursday that she has a following in the country that’s unsurpassed by anyone, except those running for president.
Pelosi made the comments in an interview with the Associated Press. The 78-year-old Democrat was responding to a question about her leadership being in jeopardy. NBC News released a report that showed over 50 Democrats, including nine incumbent lawmakers, have publicly stated they would oppose Pelosi to be speaker of the House if Democrats retake control the House of Representatives.
“This is not anything to make a big fuss over, it’s politics,” Pelosi said.
The Washington Free Beacon identified 22 Democrats from NBC’s list who have accepted campaign contributions connected to Pelosi but have either said they do not support her for speaker or dodged questions about the matter. Those Democrats accepted cash to their campaign committees from PAC to the Future (Pelosi’s leadership PAC), Nancy Pelosi for Congress (her campaign committee), or both.
