The Democratic speaker of the US House, Nancy Pelosi“fears for democracy” if Republicans retake the chamber in November.
“It is absolutely essential for our democracy that we win,” Pelosi said in an interview during the 2022 Toner Prizes for political journalism on Monday night.
“I fear for our democracy if the Republicans were ever to get the gavel. We can’t let that happen. Democracy is on the ballot in November.”
Kevin McCarthythe House minority leader, told Punchbowl News last week: “We’re going to win the majority, and it’s not going to be a five-seat majority.”
But Pelosi said: “I don’t have any intention of the Democrats losing the Congress in November.”
