DNC Chairman Tom Perez suggests Democrats could 'take 50 seats' in House

Vela is a two-term Democrat in the House from Texas.

Her leadership was certainly recognized in the Ossoff race, we'll give her that.

On Thursday, she gathered about a dozen dissenting Democrats, including Ryan, for a private meeting about how the party can move forward from the disagreement. He raised $23 million to her $4 million in the priciest House race in history.

While Ryan called her leadership "toxic", other Democratic lawmakers are stepping up to say it is time for Pelosi to go. Second-in-command Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., is 78, and number three Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., is 76. His 2015-16 giving was well behind Pelosi a year ago, at $592,500.

But Pelosi taunted Rice and others urging her to step down, issuing what sounded like a warning on Thursday, saying, "when it comes to personal ambition and having fun on TV, have your fun". "In a normal year, we wouldn't even have any shot". The daughter and sister of former Baltimore mayors, she rose quickly through Democratic ranks in the 1980s as California party chairman, then finance chair for the party's Senate campaign committee. Still, that admission didn't keep voters in the affluent district from electing her.

Maybe. But the fact that Karen Handel won anyway, in a suburban Atlanta district Trump carried by only 1.5 points, also shows the muscle-building incline Democrats face in attempting to flip the House. In 2015, 66-year-old Speaker John Boehner also defeated a younger leadership challenge.

"I think I'm worth the trouble".

This is essentially what Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters in the British Labour Party have done, but I have hard time, particularly after watching the overt and underhanded subversion of the Bernie Sanders primary campaign previous year, and the inability of progressive Democrats to challenge and replace an the ossified and thoroughly discredited party leadership, imagining that this can happen here in the United States with the Democratic Party, which internally is clearly anything but democratic. And some of her colleagues have voiced support for her since Tuesday, including Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, who described her as "one of the best speakers ever". Allies and grassroots supporters were sent suggested tweets Thursday that urged Democrats not to ditch Pelosi in the middle of a high-stakes legislative battle over the future of health care reform.


So, while the larger Republican vote was split multiple ways, the smaller Democratic vote essentially all went to Ossoff, putting him in first place among all the candidates.

But Pelosi continues to command great loyalty from many in the House, and she insisted her position was not in jeopardy. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true.

Rep. Seth Moulton echoed her complaints in a Wednesday interview with CNN's Jake Tapper.

"I thrive on competition and I welcome the discussion. It's time for a new generation of leadership in the party", he said.

"I think it's very concerning that that tactic still has some punch", Ryan said of the GOP attack ads linking Ossoff to Pelosi.

And after she predicted incorrectly that Democrats were poised to take back the House past year, some of Pelosi's colleagues feel that this time around, she needs to deliver.

"I'm very proud to represent San Francisco in the Congress", affirmed Pelosi. I think we're just sitting back and taking it.
