Pelosi Has No Control Over Her Caucus

Pelosi Has No Control Over Her Caucus

Politico is reporting this afternoon that Pelosi threatened to pull DCCC support from members who voted with Republicans on motions to recommit going forward.

 

“Pelosi also warned that Democrats who voted with Republicans on the “motion to recommit” could become a lower priority for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, although her threat may be more bluster than reality, according to Democratic lawmakers and aides.”

The wheels are coming off and the bad press of the past day didn’t help.
