NRCC Trolls Pelosi During Democratic Leadership Elections


The National Republican Congressional Committee made an odd announcement before the recent Democratic congressional leadership elections: they were endorsing Nancy Pelosi.

It was all tongue-in-cheek, of course, but the NRCC was definitely having some fun before and after Pelosi was re-elected as the leader for House Democrats.

“The NRCC would like to offer its full support to the embattled former Speaker of the House,” the NRCC started in their sarcastic endorsement statement. “After her party’s devastating 63 seat loss in the ensuing 2010 election, Pelosi miraculously maintained her spot as Democratic leader, which, predictably, led to the largest Republican majority since the 1920s.”

To add to this, the NRCC hung a sign outside their office that read "Hire Pelosi." The sign, of course, originally read "Fire Pelosi" and had been used in 2010 when Republicans won a huge House majority in the midterm elections.

The NRCC even went so far as to tweet at other House Democrats jokingly encouraging them to support Pelosi’s bid for re-election, saying that “no one had done more to ensure that Democrats remained in the minority.”

When Pelosi did eventually prevail over challenger Tim Ryan (D-OH), the NRCC added a congratulatory sign over their original one.

Pelosi recently beat back the challenge from Ryan, winning the leadership election by a comfortable margin of 134-63. That is, however, an increase in dissenting votes from the last time Pelosi was challenged. Then-Rep. Heath Shuler (D-NC) tried to challenge Pelosi after the 2010 elections, but only received 43 votes.
