Amid some calls by the Democrat Party to remove House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from her role, Republicans have rushed to defend her position. One such politician is Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Cruz took it to Twitter to implore Democrats to keep Pelosi at the helm of their party in Congress.
Absolutely right. Dems should keep Pelosi as their Leader…forever. https://t.co/eEMxdGYZmA

(Don’t worry: Cruz and other Republicans believe her remaining in power will be key to more Republican victories across the country.)
The San Francisco representative says she ain’t going anywhere. During a press conference on Thursday, she reassured reporters her leadership role isn’t in jeopardy.
“I feel very confident in the support I have in the caucus,” Pelosi said on Thursday. “I’m a master legislator, I am a strategic, politically astute leader, my leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I’m able to attract the support that I do, which is essential to our election, sad to say.”
Below are the full remarks:
Despite garnering five “moral victories,” Democrats continue to lose “bigly” at the ballot box. Over 1,000 seats from across the country have slipped from Democrat control during the last eight years. All three branches are now dominated by Republicans.
Please Democrats, keep Nancy Pelosi in charge.
