CSUEB Political Science Lecturer Larry Bensky spoke to reporter Aaron Glantz , The Bay Citizen, for the article, “Pelosi Fall Will Hit Bay Area Hard.”

“In the short run, there’s no doubt that local interests will take a very, very grave hit,” said Bensky. “Nancy Pelosi has always been a world-class fundraiser for the Democratic Party, but her low national popularity rating and Barack Obama’s status as fundraiser-in-chief means that’s no longer as valuable.” '

According to Bensky, these attacks, and huge Democratic losses at the polls, spell trouble for Pelosi’s continued ability to fundraise.
