House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., with her push to regain her former seat as Speaker, is trying to hold on to her power as long as she can, Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., said Wednesday.

"This great American concept that you give up power, it goes back to George Washington, who gave up an hour after two terms, Nancy Pelosi doesn't get that," Rep. Duffy told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "Nancy Pelosi doesn't get that. She's trying to hold onto power as long as possible."

There are 16 Democrats who have said they will not vote for Pelosi, but she is getting some people to change their minds about supporting her speaker bid, including Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, who is now saying she is not going to seek the Speaker's seat. Instead, if Pelosi is elected, Fudge will chair the soon-to-be-restored House Administration Subcommittee on Elections.

"It was a cookie that tasted very good," Duffy said. "Her constituents know her but you had a lot of young first-time Democrats run for office. Then there's the vote for Nancy Pelosi and those Democrats said 'no, I'm not going to vote for Nancy.' The first vote on the House for would be to rollback that comment to their constituents, would be very difficult. It is a hard hurdle for Nancy Pelosi to get over to become speaker.

"The Democratic Party can't figure out how to go forward whether with Nancy or someone else – either going to track to the center, go to a hard-core left? It could be a mess."
