Anti-Pelosi Democrats issue warning: She wont have the votes
House Democrats came out victorious in the midterm elections -- winning back control of the chamber and paving the way for additional oversight of the Trump administration. It's a moment that has Nancy Pelosi feeling a sense of urgency to once again hold the speaker's gavel.
Two Democrats leading the rebellion against Nancy Pelosi were bullish Tuesday evening about their efforts to stop her from winning the speakership, promising to soon reveal that they had enough support to cause a major shake-up at the top of their caucus.
The Democrats, Reps. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts and Filemon Vela of Texas, contended that their private conversations revealed that Pelosi would soon learn that she lacked backing within the full House to be elected speaker next year -- despite her confidence that she would lock down the necessary support.
"I am 100% confident we can forge new leadership," Vela told CNN.
