Nancy Pelosi just got the one piece of news about her future that she could not believe
It’s not just the Presidency that is up for grabs in 2020.
Control of Congress is also on the ballot this November.
Now Nancy Pelosi just got the one piece of news about her future that she could not believe.
For weeks Democrats privately panicked that Bernie Sanders would wrap up the nomination and doom the party to defeat in November.
Sanders’ brand of anti-American socialism was a hard sell in the swing districts Democrats won in 2018 that propelled Nancy Pelosi back to the position of Speaker of the House.
But Pelosi and other Democrats breathed a sigh of relief when Joe Biden romped to victory on Super Tuesday, dislodging Bernie Sanders from frontrunner status.
After his victory, Biden pledged to make sure Nancy Pelosi remained Speaker of the House.
If you want a Democratic nominee who can:
– Beat Donald Trump
– Keep Nancy Pelosi as Speaker and hold the House
– Take the US Senate and state legislatures
Then this is your campaign.

Biden tying his campaign to Pelosi raised some eyebrows.
Pelosi has never been a popular figure in American politics because voters view her as the epitome of a San Francisco liberal.
Biden is trying to win back voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin who turned away from Democrats because coastal elites like Pelosi sneered at their cultural affinity for owning firearms or attending church in a regular basis.
The ability of Biden to win back these voters depends on if he can separate himself from the national Democrat brand.
But on the day Biden rocketed back in to the national spotlight Biden make the key mistake of framing his candidacy as a vehicle to keep Nancy Pelosi in power.
