"I thrive on competition", Pelosi said on Thursday, defying calls for her ouster from some members of her own party after Democratic candidates lost a hotly contested Congressional race in Georgia and another race in SC earlier in the week, the third and fourth such losses for Democrats in special elections to replace the appointees of President Donald Trump this year.

Pelosi put a positive spin on the results in the Georgia race and the other GOP-leaning special elections, saying the Republican candidates won by significantly smaller margins than in past years. They must pick up 24 seats to do so. Why else would they have poured millions into a single house race and have all of the windbag liberal-leaning media outlets play it up so much?
