Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many

"As long as Leader Pelosi is perceived as the leader of the House Democratic Caucus", Vela said, "Republicans are going to continue to spend millions and millions of dollars in those swing districts to convince those swing voters, those independent voters - those Republican voters who might go our way - not to vote for our Democratic candidate because of Leader Pelosi". According to CNN, Pelosi has helped the Democratic Party raise some $568 million since 2002.

Democrats foolishly believed that college-educated Republicans would vote for a progressive Democrat over a Republican due to their disdain for President Trump and his many mishaps.

"We reduced by 20 points what the advantage had been in that district for the Republicans", the minority leader, imagining Democrats playing horseshoes or hand grenades, declared. When it comes to her detractors, Pelosi said "my decision about how long I stay is not up to them".

Some of the Democrats' suggesting Pelosi should move on have recently argued that the Republican attack ads linking Democratic candidates to her are an effective campaign tool, and could hurt the party's chances to flip control of the House in the 2018 midterms.

Pelosi, speaking to reporters on Thursday, said she's confident she has the support in her caucus.

This did more than spook Republicans - it assured them that they were part of a silent majority, and that threats to law and order were the fault of Democrats.

At least a dozen Democrats attended the confab including Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond (La.), Tony Cardenas (Calif.), a member of House Democratic leadership, and Reps.

Still, there is something odd about the attacks on Pelosi.

It's emblematic of the one campaign skill that Republicans have consistently mastered - demonizing their political opponents. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party".

Hatred for arrogance is not only a political issue, he said , adding that it is a culture rooted in the Quranic teachings. It is traditionally held on the last Friday during Ramadan.

"The whole Democratic message under Pelosi is built on fantasy", Watters said. Democrats may say the race should not have been that close, but the reality is spending that much money to drive out 100 percent of Democrats plus some anti-Trump Republicans cost them $30 million they now can not spend elsewhere.

While Handel's victory came in a district that's elected Republicans to Congress since the 1970s, it reshaped Republican thinking in two ways, and neither is likely to make the already-convoluted budget process easier.

Still, Democrats had hoped that a win in Georgia might encourage other potential candidates to run for office next year, and also set in motion GOP retirements in competitive districts. My leadership is recognized by many around the country, and that is why I'm able to attract the support that I do. Pelosi's PAC gave $496,000.

"Look, I think the Democratic Party has to come to terms with the fact that what we're doing isn't working", Moulton said. "It's time for a new generation of leadership".

In a letter to her colleagues on Wednesday about the special elections, Pelosi maintained an upbeat tone. Pelosi told fellow House Democrats in a letter Wednesday, "The House was in play before the Georgia race". A Handel ad portrayed Ossoff - who ran on a decidedly moderate message - as a San Francisco-style liberal aligned with "Nancy Pelosi and outsiders who just don't share our priorities".

But at her weekly press conference, Pelosi shrugged of concerns that she was dragging down the party.

"I think a stealth ground game, a stealth get out the vote effort [was needed]", said Ryan of the Georgia race.

"With Hollywood elites and Nancy Pelosi bankrolling his campaign, it's no secret that Ossoff would rubber stamp Pelosi's failed agenda of bigger government and more spending", Corey Bliss, executive director of the GOP-friendly Congressional Leadership Fund, said just before the Georgia election.
