Pelosi Claims Republicans Attacking Her Are Really Attacking San Francisco

Some are insisting that Democrats must draw brighter contrasts with Republicans if they plan to regain control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections.

Handel defeated her opponent, Democrat Jon Ossoff, by only 3.8 percentage points, a far cry from the victory margins Price pulled for years. "We need a winning strategy and I think the first step to getting a winning strategy is a change in leadership", Rice said on CNN.

Pelosi should watch her back. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., Seth Moulton, D-Mass., and Tim Ryan, D-Ohio.

In a Tuesday night tweet, Trump congratulated Handel and said "we are all very proud of you!"

At his big rallies last fall President Trump kept telling his supporters that, "We're just going to win and win so much you're going to get exhausted of winning". With Jaffe addressing issues like single-payer healthcare and President Trump tweeting that he hopes the Democrats keep her, Pelosi's next primary competition could end up being her most challenging election yet.

"Republican voters don't get to select the leaders of the Democratic Party".

She says Democrats "gave them a run for their money in all of them".

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says she's confident she has the support in her caucus despite finger-pointing and frustration after Democrats lost a Georgia special election.

Democrats celebrated the fact that they had turned a conservative stronghold into a competitive district.

Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Texas told Politico that Pelosi will continue to be an albatross for Democrats if she remains. "Democrats haven't won there in 37 years", he said of the former speaker of the House.

When asked about the President's comments, Pelosi said "I think they wrote that for him, it's a classic Republican line".

BENNETT: Pelosi still has broad support among House Democrats.

Put on defense, House Democratic leaders from Pelosi on down tried to spin the outcome in Georgia as positive, arguing that coming in a close second in the solidly Republican district augured well for their chances of taking back the House next year. "Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost".

Pelosi, in a letter to colleagues, said that when Trump nominated House members to serve in his administration, he chose them from Republican districts the party knew it could win.

The president's sarcastic support for Pelosi came after he had ranted on his favorite social media platform about a familiar topic - the ongoing Russian Federation investigation and what he views as the Democrats' sour grapes about losing last year's election. He raised $23 million to her $4 million in the priciest House race in history.
