Democrats and the losing politics of contempt

Acilia Dean | 25 Giugno, 2017, 14:31

She said she feels "very confident" in the support she has from her caucus, but claimed ownership over the "timing" for her role as minority leader.

Throughout the campaign, Republicans ran attack ads against Pelosi, prompting some Democrats to say it is time for her to step aside, Politico reported. "Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason Ossoff lost". She was Speaker of the House during the Bush and Obama administrations; her leadership profile rose significantly during those terms and the Golden State became predominantly blue.

Representative Kathleen Rice from NY claimed that she's been approached by an increasing number of members of the Democratic caucus, telling her that the party needs to move forward with new leadership and without Pelosi.

"The brand is just bad", the OH lawmaker told CNN's Don Lemon Wednesday. "But we're still losing". I think it's time for a new generation of leadership. "I'm a democrat and those are the issues I am focusing on and I think those are the issues most people care about whether they voted for trump or whether they are a member of a labor union or whether they are not", said Schiavoni.

In a Friday interview with cleveland.com, Ryan said the caucus would have to decide whether to hold another leadership election, but he would not be the one to challenge Pelosi. "She turned and said 'who are you going to vote for in the election?' He couldn't answer because he wasn't allowed to vote in his own election".

'We'd love to have the question be in 2018, Nancy Pelosi versus Paul Ryan, ' Gingrich added.

Georgia's 6th shares numerous same characteristics as the districts that Democrats believe will pave their way to a House majority in 2018.


Former Georgia secretary of state Karen Handel on Tuesday defeated political newcomer Democrat Jon Ossoff, 52 percent to 48 percent.

Democrats also lost a special election in SC on Tuesday in a race Republicans were widely expected to win. Democratic Party divisions are on stark display after a disappointing spec.

MOULTON: Certainly one thing I learned as a Marine is - you know, my job description was very simple. "Time to move forward and win again", tweeted South Carolina Democratic congressional candidate Joe Cunningham on June 21.

Ryan, Pelosi's opponent last fall, said that Pelosi's continued role as the GOP's favorite bogeyman makes it "a heck of a lot harder" for Democrats as they try to notch victories in the GOP-friendly districts they will need to win next year.

The two campaigns and outside groups supporting and opposing the candidates shelled out at least $36 million, including more than $22 million from Ossoff's campaign. Democrats have been overperforming in those races by historical margins.

Many rank-and-file Democrats were not having it.
