House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is again under fire from fellow Democrats and liberal lawmakers, with one insider saying Pelosi’s support within the party is beginning to collapse as calls for new leadership begin to grow.
NBC News reporter Alex Seitz-Wald was speaking with a panel on MSNBC when he outlined Pelosi’s perilous position; saying that the ‘dam is kind of breaking’ as more and more politicians see the former Speaker as a liability in 2018.
“This was always something you heard in private, whispered behind the scenes from Democratic lawmakers, Democratic candidates,” said the journalist.
“The elephant in the room, maybe the donkey in the room since we’re talking about Democrats here, but I do think the dam is kind of breaking you’re seeing more and more people and more senior people speaking out against [Pelosi],” he added.
“There’s also a generational issue here. The entire House leadership on the Democratic side is run by people in their 70s. There’s a younger crop of people coming in,” said Seitz-Wald.
