WASHINGTON, DC. -
Donald Trump once said Rep. Jerrold Nadler — an old New York foe — should “lose 200 pounds.” The president claimed California Rep. Maxine Waters has a “Very low IQ.” And he berated Democratic Rep. “Liddle Adam Schiff,” another Californian, as “the leaking monster of no control.”

Soon he may have to call them chairman or chairwoman.

Fifty days out from a critical midterm election for Trump, these three Democrats may end up as full committee chairs next year if a “blue wave” wipes out the eight-year GOP majority on Nov. 6, which seems more and more likely. Democrats have vowed to shake things up in the House, and they will make life more difficult for Trump as he ramps up his own campaign for reelection in 2020.

The potential Democratic chairmen in the next Congress are much different than their Republican counterparts, who are overwhelmingly white and male. There currently are only two GOP committee chairwomen. But the top Democrats on House panels include four women, and seven of the potential chairs are people of color. California, New York and other East Coast-West Coast states would see their lawmakers holding a number of gavels as well, a change from the Republican lineup.
