Liberal congressional candidates from the state of Arizona have had enough of Nancy Pelosi’s leadership in the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections; refusing to endorse the House Minority Leader during a recent convention of possible contenders.
The left-wing hopefuls were speaking at an event for America Rising PAC this week, with the handful of candidates running for the state’s second Congressional district answering questions from the moderator and audience.
“Now it is time for a lightning round,” said the host. “Will you support Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House?”
None of those in attendance showed their support for the embattled Democratic leader, remaining silent as the crowd looked on in shock.
Pelosi’s troubles gained national headlines last week after recent polling showed the GOP and President Trump erased previous Democratic gains following the ‘Schumer Shutdown’ and the widely popular Republican-sponsored tax cuts.
The former Speaker of the House has been under fire for months over her refusal to acknowledge the successes generated by the tax cuts, repeatedly calling higher wages and big bonuses “pathetic crumbs” to American workers.

BOOK OF NANCY: Pelosi Invokes THE POPE, ROSARY During EIGHT HOUR DACA Rant
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi turned towards a higher-power during her eight-hour long speech defending DACA Wednesday, saying she should have brought her “rosary blessed by the Pope” to help Democrats pass legislation in support of nearly one million ‘Dreamers.’
Pelosi was speaking on the floor of the House when she suddenly mentioned Pope Francis and Pope Benedict, suggesting that liberal legislators should spend the day in prayer over new DACA legislation.
“During the night when I was thinking and praying so hard about our ‘Dreamers,’ I thought maybe we should just pray all day on the floor of Congress. Maybe I should bring my rosary blessed by the Pope,” said Nancy.
“I always remember Pope Benedict when he came. He spoke so beautifully,” she added. “He quoted an Augustine who seventeen centuries ago said that any government that is not formed to promote justice is just a bunch of thieves.”
“His holiness goes on to say, ‘Sometimes it’s hard to define what justice is, but in doing so we must beware of the dazzling blindness of power and special interests,” Pelosi added.

COLLUSION DELUSION: Unhinged Pelosi Calls FISA MEMO ‘Bouquet to Putin’
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi didn’t hold back while commenting on the House Intelligence Committee’s decision to disclose the explosive FISA memo on Friday; releasing a bizarre statement that referred to the document as a “bouquet to [Trump’s] friend Putin.”
Pelosi posted her official statement to social media within minutes of Chairman Devin Nunes’ decision to disclose the controversial material to the American public; saying the President “surrendered his constitutional responsibility” when he de-classified the document.
“President Trump has surrendered his constitutional responsibility as Commander-in-Chief by releasing highly classified and distorted intelligence. By not protecting intelligence sources and methods, he just sent his friend Putin a bouquet,” she writes.
“As the Speaker and former Vice Presidential candidate, Speaker Ryan knows how dangerous it is to jeopardize our intelligence and national security. Why is he enabling this recklessness and not taking action to remove Chairman Nunes?” Nancy asked.
