House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has enjoyed a decades-long career in Washington, D.C. However, one high-profile Republican recently said that his party is ready to bring that career to an end.
Minnesota Rep. Tom Emmer (R) serves as chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), and according to Breitbart, he believes that it’s time to “retire” Pelosi from her position of power.
Emmer warned voters that they’re “not gonna be happy with what these socialist Democrats are gonna do to our country,” adding that the next election will be “a choice between two fundamental [sic] different views of the United States of America.”
“On one side, the socialists, they wanna make all the decisions for you,” Emmer explained. “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.”
“Taking nothing for granted”
Emmer went on to say that Republicans need to “share their treasure by supporting” strong candidates for the 2022 midterms. He stressed that “the world is run by those who show up and those who show up and do the work.”
The GOP congressman also noted that while congressional redistricting will give the GOP an advantage in some races, his party is “taking nothing for granted.”
Emmer added: “All you need to do is look at how House Democrats acted [in the] last cycle when they were so cocky about the fact that they were gonna win this thing and expand their majority by 15 to 24 seats, and obviously, they didn’t.”
He went on to name several Democratic lawmakers who have been specifically targeted for removal. Among them is Wisconsin Rep. Ron Kind (D).
“I’m very familiar with him,” Emmer said. “He’s been renting a building he owns to a seedy massage parlor that’s been caught advertising on known human trafficking websites.”
“Retire Nancy Pelosi”
In May, Fox News published screenshots from multiple websites showing advertisements for a business called Asian Sunny Massage. One of the websites was characterized by USA Today as acting as a “Yelp for sex spas.”
Another target is New Jersey Rep. Tom Malinowski (D), who Emmer said has “been caught twice for failing to properly disclose shady stock transactions that actually allowed him to profit off the pandemic.”
“We know what we’re doing to win races,” Emmer declared, adding that Republicans can “stop this socialist lurch to the left and retire Nancy Pelosi.”
