What you need to know about the latest gaming news
Speaker Pelosi’s nomination to be the next chair of the Democratic National Committee is coming amid an escalating wave of gaming-related controversies.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and the Republican Congress.
She’s been a strong proponent of expanding the digital gaming industry, and has been vocal about gaming as a way to fight bullying and racism.
She also was a vocal advocate of bringing more women into the gaming industry.
But a slew of recent gaming scandals has cast a shadow over her nomination.
Her nomination is likely to face opposition from her own party, which has accused her of being too cozy with Trump.
Speaker Pelosi is not a Trump ally, and her party has been trying to make her out to be that way.GOP senators have also said they’ll oppose her nomination, even as they have not yet endorsed her for the job.
Democrats are hoping for a new chair who is more of a pragmatist than a populist, as they would be if they were seeking to replace the unpopular GOP leader.
