Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says Democrats will maintain control of the House in 2020, saying she will have the necessary seats secured by November.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Pelosi said she will have the majority of the House fully controlled by November of this year, one year ahead of the 2020 presidential elections, saying “I’m going to have our races won by this November.” Pelosi also threatened Republicans, saying they will rethink running after realizing how much money is being spent to run against Democratic candidates.
“It’s going to cost you millions of dollars, to win or lose. And if you win — say you win — you’re in the minority,” Pelosi continued.
Pelosi predicted she would be elected as the next speaker of the House before the vote in January, despite Democratic Reps. Kathleen Rice of New York, Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, Filemon Vela of Texas and Tim Ryan of Ohio, who called for Pelosi to relinquish her leadership role.
The California Democrat has been the biggest fundraiser for Democratic candidates.
