Special election results herald shift in thinking | Letters

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif. arrives for a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday Special election results herald shift in thinking | Letters

That is about the same margin of victory in another special election held that same day in SC to replace Trump's budget director, Mick Mulvaney - a race that didn't garner almost as much attention. "At some point, the coach has got to go, right?" said Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., on Friday.

It's about all they can do. One of Trump's electoral strengths was that he is not Hillary Clinton, and Tuesday in Georgia the voters said they don't want a congressman who has been hanging out with Nancy Pelosi. But, Vela insisted "that would all change now", adding that while the House Democratic Caucus ultimately determines who the new leader would be, "if it's somebody like Tim Ryan, I would certainly support him".

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". According to CNN, Pelosi has helped the Democratic Party raise some $568 million since 2002.

Millions were spent in Georgia with ads linking Pelosi to Jon Ossoff, who lost to Republican Karen Handel on Tuesday. The bottom line is the Democrats lost another winnable race and Pelosi was a factor, fair or not.

Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela from Texas told Politico that you'd have to be an idiot to think that Democrats could win with the current Democratic leader in the House.

- On Election Day it rained a lot more in the Democratic parts of the district.

Pelosi said: "Usually they go after the most effective leaders because they want to diminish the opportunity that we have".


"We should stop talking about Trump all the time, and Russian Federation". "The honest answer is in some areas of the country - yes, she is", Ryan said.

Well, it appears that Pelosi and her team are fighting back.

Asked if Pelosi should remain the top House Democratic leader in the next Congress, her number two, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, told reporters "I understand that she is intending to stay" and added "I don't think anybody is going to impeach her".

No other Democrat possesses the stature to match those accomplishments. "But it looks like for every new Democrat who turned out to vote, there was a new Republican who showed up and voted". As lawmakers assemble to vote, the speaker will call the representative-elect to the well of the House for the oath of office. Perhaps it's because other generations still keep in mind the adage to not discuss politics, religion or money with friends and family.

"When it comes to personal ambition and having fun on TV, have your fun, "The Hill reports Pelosi as saying".

But that didn't stop her from preaching her message of hope - just shortly after she defended her abilities as a "master legislator" following the Georgia loss.

"With Hollywood elites and Nancy Pelosi bankrolling his campaign, it's no secret that Ossoff would rubber stamp Pelosi's failed agenda of bigger government and more spending", Corey Bliss, executive director of the GOP-friendly Congressional Leadership Fund, said just before the Georgia election.
