It what has seems like FOREVER, Pelosi may finally lose her job. This is the first time Pelosi has been challenged since 2010. Ryan had given himself till today to decide if fighting her was an option and he obviously thought it best in a letter to fellow lawmakers.
Pelosi still feels she’s got the cat in the bag regardless of who challenges her. You would think these people would look at Hillary’s loss and understand that their “feelings” aren’t always right. However, many still say she knows what she is doing and keeps dems in line…I’m not sure about all that. Time for something a bit more fresh.

Politico had this to say:
Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) will challenge House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for the top Democratic leadership post, he announced in a letter to fellow lawmakers Thursday. It’s the first challenge Pelosi has faced since 2010.
“Vote for me and I will dedicate all of my energy to lead us back into the majority. Our constituents deserve nothing less,” Ryan wrote.
Pelosi predicted she would easily beat back any challenge, asserting she already has the support of two-thirds of the Democratic Caucus.
