Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela: Pelosi 'doesn't help our candidate

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi faced her most serious challenge to her leadership post last year from Rep. Tim Ryan D-Ohio but she still emerged with support from two-thirds of the caucus In Our Opinion: Democrats find themselves at a loss to win

"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.

These Democrats might be on to something, especially in light of the way Pelosi figured into the Republican campaign in Georgia.

"I'm a master legislator". I'm a strategic, politically astute leader. So is a special election half the country away that was mostly decided before the campaign even started.

"If we think we're going to win these elections because President Trump's at 35 percent, I think in districts like mine and certainly Georgia and SC, it takes more than that", said Rep. Tim Walz of Minnesota.

Democratic Party divisions are on stark display after a disappointing special election loss in a hard-fought Georgia congressional race. As with the previous results in Kansas and Montana, there are enough tidbits in each result to formulate whatever conclusion helps you sleep better at night.

All the races were on GOP-friendly terrain. They must pick up 24 seats to do so. Democrats' attempts to conflate Handel with Trump failed to make a difference in Tuesday's election.

"Obviously people are very concerned about where we are and they want to have a conversation about where we need to be", Rep. Tim Ryan of OH told reporters about why the group got together.

"We need leadership change", Rice told CNN outside the House chamber. "I'm a strategic, politically astute leader", she said.

Ossoff's campaign raised $23.6 million alone from individual donors, compared to $5.6 million for Handel, The New York Times reports.


Democrats hoped growing dissatisfaction with Trump, particularly within this stratum of Republicans, would allow them to pick up a seat and "generate momentum" for 2018. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" he said, referring to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).

Pelosi brushed off the tweet, contending that Trump hadn't actually written it himself because "it's a classic Republican line". It's not fair. It's not accurate in its attacks on our leader, but it's effective. Plus, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told Fox on Thursday that he also hopes that the Democrats keep Pelosi because the Republicans already know how to win elections against a Pelosi-run party.

Wasserman sees "a pattern that should still worry GOP incumbents everywhere".

Several Democratic lawmakers have said Pelosi's position as a prominent face of the Democratic Party will continue to make winning elections hard. "They don't get it". And yet, one can not help but think Ossoff did not quite capitalize on this enough in the race.

Rice said she has spoken with a number of other House Democrats following Tuesday's loss, and some of those members - including Democratic whip Steny Hoyer and assistant Democratic leader Jim Clyburn - share her concerns about the current leadership, . Democrats were most optimistic about their chances in Georgia, where the party and its allies spent close to $30 million to bolster 30-year-old newcomer Jon Ossoff. Hillary Clinton lost 41 percent of the populist voters that Barack Obama won in 2012 - and lost Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin and the election as a result.

Pelosi reportedly loves the idea of single-payer health care, but she still discounted Bernie Sanders' mention of it during his bid for the presidency.

"I honestly can't believe you're the president and you still say things like "Cryin' Chuck" about a US Senator". "We don't agonize. We organize".

"I am not going to Monday morning quarterback on Jon Ossoff's race, which was a remarkable race, an incredible gain from where the last Republican that ran was 22 points up, and we were two points lower than 50 percent, in a race that was not supposed to ever even be feasible", Orrock declared.
