The Democrat Caucus held a call Thursday in which members of the party were reportedly scrambling after losing key seats in the U.S. House of Representatives in Tuesday’s Election.

Erica Werner of The Washington Post said that during the call Virginia Rep. Abigail Spanberger yelled, “We lost races we shouldn’t have lost. Defund police almost cost me my race bc of an attack ad. Don’t say socialism ever again. Need to get back to basics. If we run this race again we will get f****** torn apart again in 20222.”

Rep. Spanberger’s office didn’t return this reporter’s call or respond to an email request for comment.

In her Twitter thread describing the call, Werner added that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, however, disagreed with Rep. Spanberger’s assessment, reportedly saying “We have a mandate!”

According to Werner, Florida Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell was crying on the call over people mispronouncing her name. And, later Rep. Hakeem Jeffries reportedly urged members “to stop leaking and that reporters aren’t your friends!”

According to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, Democrats failed to flip House seats and appear to have lost seats that the party flipped in 2018.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
