Rep. Seth Moulton Gets Pushback From Nancy Pelosi Supporters As He Releases Anti-Pelosi Letter

Not a popular position, it seems.

Much of the event was documented by Kevin Robillard, a senior political reporter with The Huffington Post.

Robillard noted the opinions of Moulton’s supporters, too. Moulton scored points for his work on gun control, a top priority among his constituents.

Moulton announced that he is trying to persuade Marcia Fudge (D-OH), among others, to run for the Speaker position.

Moulton has earned a reputation as an anti-establishment candidate. He challenged longtime incumbent Rep. John Tierney, in his 2014 primary and his remained unopposed since. He is one of at least a dozen Democrats who has called for new leadership and voiced opposition to Pelosi assuming the role of Speaker, which she last held between 2007 and 2011. This stance has prompted some groups to launch fundraising campaigns to support a challenger in 2020.

Moulton, for his part, doesn’t appear too concerned.

“I won by a primary. Primaries are good,” he told reporters. “I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t taken on a primary challenge myself. That’s what elections are all about, and that’s exactly the attitude that we should have right now. I think it’s sort of ironic the same people saying they should primary me are saying we shouldn’t have that primary we’re having right now in the House of Representatives.”
