In an email released to supporters, Eagle argues that Pelosi’s actions taken this past weekend are “an unprecedented attack against our democracy.” Specifically, “she and her cronies in the democratic party decided that they no longer need to report to work, and that the American people will pay them anyways.”
His campaign went on to explain that “while more Americans than ever are being forced to go without pay, Pelosi has decided that she is a class above us all and that the hardships of the American people are simply not her problem.”
In turn, the Eagle campaign believes that “she has proven beyond a doubt that she is unfit to serve as Speaker of the House,” citing that the upcoming election is a chance for Republicans to once again claim the House and remove her from office.
Rep. Dane Eagle is currently running to replace Rep. Francis Rooney (R) who is retiring from his congressional seat.
He faces a crowded Republican primary in a closely-watched election season.
