The deeply unpopular and highly partisan Pelosi has bought the support of her party by controlling campaign cash.
The exceptions — like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14) and Ayanna Pressley (MA-7), who defeated Pelosi loyalists in primary races in safe seats — are too few in number to matter.
He is far too liberal for the district — but he has won the support of the Democratic establishment by backing Pelosi to the hilt, calling her “one of my political heroes.”
If Democrats win, Pelosi will almost certainly become Speaker of the House again.
There is only one way to send Pelosi back to San Francisco, short of deliberately losing the White House in 2020, and that is for Republicans to retain control of the House in November.
