Their pledge to oppose Pelosi, D-Calif., both in an internal caucus election November 28 and a January 3 floor vote, delivered in a letter sent to Democratic colleagues, comes as Pelosi has marshaled a legion of supporters on and off Capitol Hill to make her case. "We are thankful to Leader Pelosi for her years of service to our Country and to our Caucus. We promised to change the status quo, and we intend to deliver on that promise", the Democrats wrote.

Pelosi allies were quick to jump on the letter Monday as proof that Pelosi will overcome the challenges.
