Nancy Pelosi just got a ringing endorsement to hang on to Minority Leader job–from REPUBLICANS

Republicans told Nancy Pelosi they’ve got her back in her upcoming battle to keep her position as House Minority Leader.

The struggling California Democrat received the endorsement of the National Republican Congressional Committee on Thursday as she faces challengers from within her own party for the leadership role.

“With Nancy Pelosi facing a challenge within her own party after House Democrats’ disastrous election results, the NRCC would like to offer its full support to the embattled former Speaker of the House,” the NRCC announced in a press release Thursday.

The organization gave Pelosi credit for making her party “irrelevant” and squandering their majority by promoting Obamacare and other unpopular legislation.

“No single person deserves more credit for House Republicans’ historic majority than Nancy Pelosi,” NRCC Communications Director Katie Martin said. “Under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership, House Democrats have become completely irrelevant, and there is no better way to ensure that remains the case than by keeping her as Minority Leader.”

A disappointing election resulted in Democrats failing to regain the majority by unseating enough incumbent Republicans, who have controlled the House of Representatives since 2010.

“Former Speaker Pelosi has also established herself as the world’s worst election prognosticator,” the NRCC stated. “Since her relegation to the minority, Pelosi has repeatedly assured reporters, cycle after cycle, that a Democrat majority is right around the corner, only to be soundly defeated each time.”

“The NRCC offers its full support to Nancy Pelosi as she attempts to fend off this challenge to her failed leadership from within the ranks of her own party,” the statement concluded.

Twitter users tipped their collective hats to the NRCC and its “well-played” announcement.
