Before the election results are even official, possible future Democratic Congressman Conor Lamb is urging House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to step down from her post; saying he would support “anyone” running against the former Speaker of the House in an upcoming leadership vote.
Lamb was speaking with MSNBC News just hours after he declared victory in the still too-close-to-call Pennsylvania special election when he was asked to comment on Pelosi’s future.
“You’ve made the case on the campaign trail over the last several months that there needs to be new leadership in Washington at the top of both parties,” said MSNBC’s Willie Geist. “When you arrive in Washington -assuming you win this election- do you think Nancy Pelosi should go?”
“I don’t know if we’re there yet. My understanding is there wouldn’t be a leadership vote this year; and we’ve got a couple of elections to go before we get there,” said Lamb.
“However, yes. I have said that I think we need new leadership at the top of both parties in the House. So, I would like to see someone besides Nancy Pelosi run, and that’s who I would support,” he added.
