Other Views: Bad day for the Democrats

Acilia Dean | 25 Giugno, 2017, 15:43

As they're forced to acknowledge growing concerns about Nancy Pelosi's competence, many prominent Democrats have started calling for Nancy Pelosi to resign as House Minority Leader.

MOULTON: Certainly one thing I learned as a Marine is - you know, my job description was very simple. She is a great leader.

Trump was quick to celebrate the Georgia win and accused Democrats of standing in the way of a legislative agenda bogged down by infighting and investigations into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation in last year's presidential election. When it comes to her detractors, Pelosi said "my decision about how long I stay is not up to them". "If we don't, then I think it's incumbent upon her and all of us to reassess who our leadership should be".

Politico reported that a number of House Democrats met on Thursday to discuss ways to replace Pelosi, something they say is necessary to win House seats in the 2018 election. But Pelosi insisted she's already done that by bringing younger members into leadership.

Trump's comments about "crying Chuck" are in reference to Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.

"The brand is just bad", Ryan said. In all four special congressional elections that have taken place since Donald Trump's election, Republicans have used attack ads to portray Democratic candidates as allies of Pelosi.


"I think that in certain areas, like in some of these special election districts, it doesn't benefit our candidates to be tied to her", Ryan said. I have enormous respect for her. "It's time for a new generation of leadership in the party".

Pelosi herself erupted about the GOP ads last week, after Republicans accused Democrats of overly harsh rhetoric in the wake of the shooting at the Republican congressional baseball practice in Virginia.

She is the latest in a line of Republicans who have represented the Georgia 6th since 1979, beginning with Newt Gingrich, who would become House speaker. But he didn't live in the district, and Handel was able to tar him as a Nancy Pelosi California liberal. "Many times I had not really wanted to run again, and (Democrats) called on me to do so".

These Democrats might be on to something, especially in light of the way Pelosi figured into the Republican campaign in Georgia. But Republican Karen Handel ended up winning by a comfortable five percentage point margin.

Asked Wednesday night on CNN if Pelosi was as toxic to Democrats as Trump, Ohio Democratic Rep. It would not have been a crucial blow to Trump if Ossoff had won in Georgia, and it's not a devastating blow to Democrats that, despite raising $25 million, he couldn't win in a heavily Republican district.
