WASHINGTON | Pelosi’s opponents counting on chaos to deny her speakership
WASHINGTON— Call it the chaos theory for picking the next House speaker.
Those Democrats trying to stop California Rep. Nancy Pelosi from reclaiming the job say they don’t need a rival candidate just yet.
Instead, they plan to show that Pelosi lacks the votes to win the race.
And then, they say, new challengers will emerge.
It’s strategy that has other Democrats cringing at the prospect of their new House majority in disarray.
