Howie Klein: I’m not supposed to be talking about this, but I don’t care. Democrats had a meeting of their recruitment committee and the recruitment committee pretty much fell in love with Randy Bryce. They saw his video. They didn’t meet him. But they saw his video. One of the members of the democratic recruitment committee who favors Randy Bryce played the video for them, and they loved it.
And now they want to throw away the old restrictions against running someone against Paul Ryan. And they want to get behind Randy. So that’s a really good sign, and now it’s going to be up to Nancy Pelosi. She’s the one who has previously ordered hands off Ryan. She can tell the recruitment committee not to support Randy Bryce. And she may and I don’t know if she will or she won’t. But if the DCCC doesn’t get behind this campaign to get rid of Paul Ryan it’s because of Nancy Pelosi.
David: We’ve talked on this show about getting rid of Nancy Pelosi. But you said before the show started that the alternative in the democratic party to Pelosi could be worse.
Howie Klein: No. Not “could” be. Would definitely be worse.
