The reasoning was that even if Pelosi is good at the legislative and fundraising aspects of her job, Democrats can't afford to have a liberal woman from San Francisco popping up in Republican campaign ads if they want to retake the House.

Georgia's special election marked the largest Republican turnout ever, noted Gingrich, leading Karen Handel to a win over Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff to replace Tom Price, who left his congressional seat after becoming Health and Human Services secretary.

She also dismissed the notion that the Republicans' longtime tactic to hold her up as a partisan lightening rod drags down public opinion about fellow congressional Democrats and candidates.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pelosi said Democrats are proud of the race they ran and she dispelled a question about stepping down.

Pelosi, in a letter to colleagues, said that when Trump nominated House members to serve in his administration, he chose them from Republican districts the party knew it could win.

"This is not about me", Rice said. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party", he tweeted.

"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. "She has been a great leader, but like every leader, time immemorial, it's time for people to know when to go", Rice said.


The response from some is that it better be.

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?

SETH MOULTON: Look. I think the Democratic Party has to come to terms with the fact that what we're doing isn't working, and it's time for some change.

However, Pelosi said she welcomes the questioning of her leadership - while also suggesting that her critics are just seeking media attention. Trump pulled many new voters into the GOP coalition, but many of them are willing to drift back to the Democrats - at least with Trump not on the ballot.

"If we take back the House in 2018 then I think she'd stay leader", said Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz.

Aboard Air Force One Wednesday, White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said Handel's win was proof "the American people are resonating with the president's agenda" and want to see his it enacted.
