From The Hill:
A House Democratic lawmaker said late last week that he’d heard Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t seek another term as Speaker.
Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) said that not only would he not back Pelosi (D-Calif.) for Speaker again, but also that he’d heard she would not seek another term in that position…
Translation: “please vote for me, I won’t help Nancy stay as Speaker; and, anyways, I heard this story that she won’t run again, so you don’t need to vote against me to get her out!”.
This is the last shriek of despair as Democrats head in to what will be a crushing defeat.
