Nancy Pelosi has a message for those Democrats who think they can oppose her as the next speaker.
“I don’t care.”

In other words — get back in line and shut up.
Pelosi will be the next Speaker if Democrats win on their vision of open borders, job cuts and higher taxes.
You can take that to the bank. reported:

In a recent interview with The New York Times, the California Democrat said she just “doesn’t care” about the number of Democratic candidates on the campaign trail in the 2018 election cycle who openly oppose her desire to wield the speaker’s gavel once again – if distancing themselves from her is helpful for their local elections.

“I don’t care,” she told the outlet. “Let them do whatever they want. We have to win an election.”

Pelosi also delineated a test for any aspiring party leader. She said any Democrat who hopes to assume her post should “have a following, [and] that they’ve shown a vision for the country.”

Any would-be challenger, she said, must show that they have huge fundraising prowess, as well.
