Dem Challenger Tim Ryan Trashes Nancy Pelosi on Fox: ‘How Bad Does It Have to Get?’

tim-ryanCongressman Tim Ryan, challenger to Nancy Pelosi‘s position as House Minority Leader, bashed Pelosi on Fox & Friends Monday morning and said she was responsible for the consistent Democratic electoral losses under her tenure.

The Ohio Democrat dismissed Pelosi’s assurances that she had enough votes to defeat an insurgency against her leadership. “There’s an appetite for change within our caucus,” Ryan said.

“The question really is, how bad does it have to get? We lost 68 seats since 2010. We have the lowest majority or the lowest number in our caucus since 1929.”

“How bad does it have to get before we recognize we have to change?” he asked. “There’s a lot of working-class people that are in congressional districts like mine that are black, white, brown, gay, straight that want economic opportunity, and they don’t see the Democratic Party as the party giving it to them.”
