FNC's Wallace: 'The Squad' Will 'Have a Lot of Clout in the House'

As the Democratic Party is seemingly becoming divided between the far-left members and the more moderate members among the party, Fox News Channel anchor Chris Wallace on Friday said he sees “The Squad,” which consists of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), having “a lot of clout” in the 117th Congress.

With the Democrats holding a “razor-thin” majority in the House, Wallace said the members of “The Squad” and their like-minded colleagues hold “the balance of the majority in their hands” by not passing measures they may not find perfect.

“It’s interesting [Democrats] clearly didn’t win in the House,” Wallace told Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom.” “Everybody expected them –, and I know the Democratic power inside the House expected them — to pick up a half dozen seats at least. It looks like they’ve lost more than a half dozen seats.
