WASHINGTON D.C. — A dozen House Democrats gathered Thursday afternoon to talk about whetherand howthey might get a new minority leader. The lawmakers shared a consensus that their chances of regaining their majority will be slim to none unless they remove and replace Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

"There are many more people today, even from November, who are much more vocal, who have approached us and said, 'I'm done. We need to move forward and we need to get a new leadership team in place," Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY), one of the meeting's leaders, told Politico.

Reps. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) and Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) also led the meeting. Ryan had made an unsuccessful bid to challenge Pelosi for party leader back in November. No new challengers to Pelosi have stepped forward this year, and sources said that any actual coup is still unlikely.

The meeting attendees did not formulate any specific plans for replacing Pelosi, but they said afterward that they would continue to discuss the subject and possibly meet again to weigh next steps.

The House Democrats first elected Pelosi leader in 2010she was previously House speakerfollowing their loss of the majority in that year's elections. Not once during her tenure have they come close to regaining their majority.

Criticism of Pelosi has sharpened in the past two weeks after speeches in which she stumbled over her words or lost her train of thought, fueling speculations of burnout or cognitive decline. In one instance, she repeatedly called President Trump "President Bush."
