Dem Rep unloads on Nancy Pelosi: ‘Aloof, frenetic’ — ‘I think she lacks gravitas’

Higgins joined a growing list of Democrats who are calling for new leadership ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, and vowing to vote against Pelosi should the party gain control of the lower chamber.

Higgins told the news site he’s had enough of Pelosi for a lot of reasons, but mostly because Democrats lack a clear agenda and the former speaker’s lack of interest in his proposals for expanding Medicare and spending on infrastructure, according to the news site.

“I’m giving voice to a frustration that I hear every single day,” he said. “I don’t want to call anybody out. But this is the conversation that is taking place.”
