Democratic House Candidate Throws Nancy Pelosi Under The Bus

A Democratic candidate for a House seat in Arizona has flipped against Rep. Nancy Pelosi, saying she now wants “new leadership” for the party.

Hiral Tipirneni, a doctor and cancer research advocate whose platform includes Medicare for all, said in April that she supported Pelosi, who wants to be Speaker of the House again should Democrats take back the House in November.

Asked on MSNBC if she thought “that Nancy Pelosi should be the speaker of the House if Democrats retake the majority?” Tipirneni said, “Well, look, if Nancy Pelosi is running and she supports Social Security and Medicare and she makes a commitment to that and she’s running against somebody who does not, I mean, of course I would support her.”

But that was April. She sang a different tune on Sunday when she appeared on a local TV show called “Politics Unplugged.”

Host Dennis Welch asked: “If you were elected, would you support Nancy Pelosi for the speakership? Or would you support somebody else?”

Said Tipirneni: “Look, I think it’s time for change, and that’s why I’m running. We’re tired of all the partisanship and obstructionism. I’m ready for new leadership on both sides of the aisle. I think it’s long overdue.”

A slew of Democrats have recently been moving away from the 78-year-old California Democrat. At least 20 Democrats have now said they won’t support her bid to be Speaker again, according to Politico.

“If the Democratic Party is going to earn back the trust of the American people then we need to show them that we are serious about changing our politics — and that means we need a change in leadership,” Max Rose, a Democrat running for a House seat in New York, told Politico.

    OMG the woman is 78 years old. She needs to retire and go back to being a citizen again instead of the elitist she believes herself to be.

      To late for the Democrat Party to change. They had ample time to do right by the American People and they have proven themselves to be Above the American People time and time again with their Greed,Lawlessness and Obstructionism. They don’t care about the American People, The American Citizen and they do not care about America. They only care about themselves and the Illegal Aliens to come in and destroy our Country. I’ve had enough of them and I for one hope they are dissolved as a Party. Nothing but Corruption, Lawlessness, Corruption and Greed with them. FYI those who are in the Party who seem to care like Senator Manchin should get a clue and leave the Democrat Party and become a Republican.
