    Seth Moulton Willing to Negotiate With Nancy Pelosi

    One of the leaders of the movement to keep Nancy Pelosi from the top House leadership position is Massachusetts Congressman Seth Moulton. While Moulton strongly maintains that the Pelosi critics have the votes to oust her, he is now sounding open to negotiation.

    U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton says he could support Nancy Pelosi for House speaker — if she and the two top members of her leadership team agree to step down after a year and hold new elections.

    The Massachusetts Democrat, who's helping lead the opposition to Pelosi, told WGBH-FM on Friday that the House needs a new generation of leaders.

    Pelosi was overwhelmingly nominated to become speaker in an internal Democratic caucus vote Wednesday. She's within range of the 218 votes needed in January to be elected speaker when Congress convenes.

    Moulton also called a tweet from Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York "offensive."
