Nancy Pelosi is out as Speaker of the House.
This was an outcome all Republicans worked towards.
And Nancy Pelosi just got fired and you won’t believe which Republican is responsible.
California Republican Kevin Kiley won his bid for office in California’s 3rd Congressional District.
Kiley’s win put Republicans at 218 seats, meaning the GOP captured the majority in the House of Representatives and could oust Nancy Pelosi as Speaker.

Trump endorsed Kiley who ran on a conservative message of readopting his America First agenda of secure borders, low taxes, and economic growth.
“If we get the majority in Congress, we’re going to need to actually put forward legislation that would return us to those policies of the Trump era, that were moving our country in the right direction to try to actually get our economy going again, to try to return security to our border, to lower taxes,” Kiley told Breitbart.
At his re-election announcement, Trump celebrated Kiley’s win that booted Pelosi from power.
“Nancy Pelosi has been fired. Isn’t that nice?” Trump asked.
Kiley’s win topping Pelosi was sweet for Republicans and Trump on numerous fronts.
Pelosi losing power because of her home state electing enough Republicans was a bitter pill for her and the Democrats to swallow.
And the fact that Kiley was a Trump-backed conservative was an extra twist of the knife for Pelosi.
There are still races that have yet to be called.
If there are no changes in the undeclared races, then Republicans will end up holding a narrow 221 to 214 seat majority in the next Congress.
That will mean the next big question is who will replace Nancy Pelosi?
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is currently the favorite to wind up the next Speaker of the House.
But in the GOP conference’s leadership election, McCarthy only won 188 votes, far short of the 218 necessary to secure the Speaker’s gavel when the entire House votes in January.
That is a problem for another day.
In the immediate moment, Republicans all celebrated the end of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
