Who will take over and where will she go from here?

Chuck Schumer says Nancy Pelosi is ‘in trouble,’ declares Democrats will lose House.


Nancy Pelosi is about to be kicked out by Republicans and Democrats are powerless to help her. The red wave is coming this midterm election and it could Nancy Pelosi’s political career for good this time.


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “in trouble” and Democrats are likely to lose the House, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer declared during a private dinner with fellow Democratic senators, according to reports.


Schumer, D-N.Y., and six other Democratic senators were spotted dining at Trattoria Alberto, a swanky Italian restaurant in Washington, on Monday evening, and the group was talking loud enough to be heard by other patrons, according to Punchbowl News. Schumer reportedly expressed confidence that Democrats would keep the Senate come November but said Republicans had a 60% chance of taking the House.


If Republicans take the house, there’s a possibility Trump will become the new speaker of the House, a move that will leave Nancy Pelosi reeling. But such is the situation she has found herself in.


The other Democratic senators at the gathering included Chris Coons of Delaware, Mark Kelly of Arizona, Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, Tom Carper of Delaware, John Hickenlooper of Colorado, and Dick Durbin of Illinois.


Schumer also weighed in on a series of other topics, arguing that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., “sucked up” to former President Donald Trump. He also stated his belief that Trump will run for president again in 2024.


The dinner came one day before revelations that Schumer was putting $15 million of his own campaign funds toward Senate races for fellow Democrats across the country.


Schumer’s campaign will donate $5 million to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which is the Senate Democrats’ re-election arm. Another $10 million will go directly to campaigns.


The move by Schumer, which comes with just eight weeks to go until the autumn elections, follows the ramping up of a massive spending spree by the Senate Leadership Fund, the top outside group supporting GOP incumbents and candidates.


Senate Leadership Fund, which is aligned with longtime GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said it’s spending $190 million this cycle. And One Nation, the group’s sister nonprofit public advocacy organization, dished out nearly $60 million so far this year in Senate races.


This is Joe Biden’s first midterm and Americans are hoping it will be his last as well.
