It was recently reported that the National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer is very confident that Republicans will take back the U.S. House of Representatives next year.
During an interview with Breitbart, Emmer said Republicans are going to retire House Speaker Nancy Pelosi once and for all.
Emmer said Republicans “should find a candidate or candidates, they should share their treasure by supporting them financially, they should share their talents by offering to volunteer in a campaign, because look, the world is run by those who show up and those who show up and do the work, they own our freedom, and there’s never been a time like right now, Matt, to get involved and take a position.”
“If you sit back and be quiet, you’re not gonna be happy with what these socialist Democrats are gonna do to our country, cause this is no longer a choice between a degree of freedom — the right of someone to self-determine versus the size and scope of government — this is literally a choice between two fundamentally different views of the United States of America. On one side, the socialists, they wanna make all the decisions for you. On the other side, we still believe in free markets and the right of people to achieve their American dream on [sic] by hard work and playing by the rules,” he said.

Speculation and rumors are beginning to mount that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could be on her way out in the near future.

As noted by Axios, Pelosi has already suggested this is her final term as House Speaker.
And it appears there may be a new frontrunner to replace Pelosi if she does step down: Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Katherine Clark.
“Clark has built up a pile of chits in just under eight years in Congress, rising to assistant speaker — her party’s fourth highest-ranking slot in the House, and just one notch ahead of Jeffries,” Axios reported.
While speaking with Axios, Clark dodged when asked if she is the best person to be the next speaker.
“I don’t know, but I can tell you that those are going to be tall stilettos to fill,” she said.
No matter what happens with Pelosi, Democrats should be very worried that they will lose control of the House in the 2022 midterm elections.
According to a new poll from Democracy Corps, enthusiasm among Republicans to vote in the midterm elections outpaces Democrats by double digits.
The survey found that 68% of Republicans remain engaged ahead of 2022. Meanwhile, Democrats have seen their engagement slip to 57%, an 11-point cushion for the GOP.
The survey also found that Republican voters remain firmly in the camp of Trump, with only 16% of Republicans identifying as “non-Trump conservatives.”
