Democrat Leader Blames Gerrymandering For Special Election Loss

She's also credited for many legislative successes on Capitol Hill. I'm a strategic, politically astute leader. "My leadership is recognized by many around the country and that is why I am able to attract the support that I do".

In fact, in all four special elections - including a surprisingly close race in SC also on Tuesday - Democrats outperformed Hillary Clinton in 2016, and they really only tried hard in one of them (Georgia).

Ryan lost a bid to replace Pelosi as the top elected Democrat in the House in November.

Some Democratic lawmakers and political operatives have said Pelosi contributed to Democrat Jon Ossoff's loss to Karen Handel in the race for Georgia's 6th Congressional District on Tuesday. In all four states, Democrats bolstered their historical performance in districts they lost by double-digit margins a year ago.

All the races were on GOP-friendly terrain.

The Democrats desperately wanted a Republican defeat in a House race so they could use it to show that Trump's popularity was evaporating and they were on the comeback trail for the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats need to net 24 seats to win back the House. He tried and failed last fall to unseat Pelosi as House minority leader.

Kathleen Rice of NY, a frequent critic of Democrat leaders, told CNN's "New Day" that it's time for a leadership change and a winning strategy.

On MSNBC's "Morning Joe", Ryan predicted it would be hard for Democrats to win back the House with Pelosi as Minority Leader. "Personally I think it's time for a new generation of leadership in the party".

Those sentiments also were reflected by Ryan and Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Massachusetts), while Pelosi said Thursday at a press conference that she was "worth the trouble" and loved "the fray". "That would be very bad for the Republican Party", he tweeted.


Pelosi brushed off the tweet, contending that Trump hadn't actually written it himself because "it's a classic Republican line". Are the attacks accurate? No.

Pelosi didn't give names when she referred to those who want her to step aside, but she called out those chose to go on television to criticize her, saying "have your fun".

Looking at the campaign ads eventual victor Karen Handle ran in the Georgia race, one would have thought she was running against Pelosi, not Jon Ossoff.

Minority leader Nancy Pelosi thinks the Democratic Party is doing just fine despite her fellow Democrats thinking it's time for her to get the ax.

"This is the beginning of something much bigger than us", Ossoff said in his concession speech. That's why Nancy Pelosi and her allies are pouring millions into his campaign.

He said the Democratic Party, however, isn't self-aware enough to realize that they'll always have an uphill battle if she's the face of the party. But Pelosi insisted she's already done that by bringing younger members into leadership.

"Well we have to be optimistic, and we have to keep on fighting", she said.

No one ever gets exhausted of winning, especially a rookie politician that everyone in the establishment predicted would be a loser.
