Congressman Ryan says party's message is why Democrats losing elections

Rep Kathleen Rice called for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to step down on Wednesday following Democrats crushing defeat in midterm elections in Georgia Tuesday Congressman Ryan says party's message is why Democrats losing elections

Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., left, walks offstage after speaking at an election night party for Democratic candidate for 6th Congressional District Jon Ossoff in Atlanta, Tuesday, June 20, 2017.

"Karen Handel won in a Republican district that was drawn for a Republican to win", Johnson told Elliot. He tried and failed last fall to unseat Pelosi as House minority leader.

Pelosi said that would be fine with her.

"We can't keep losing races and keep the same leadership in place". I have enormous respect for her. "Another Democratic leader would not start with that level of name recognition".

As one of his first moves after declaring his candidacy against Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC), Democrat Joe Cunningham tweeted, "If elected, I will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker".

US President Donald Trump knocked Democrats on Wednesday for obstructing his agenda, one day after a fellow Republican won a congressional race in Georgia that was widely seen as a referendum on his young, turbulent presidency.

According to multiple attendees, Rep.

The outcome in SC was closer, which had some Democrats wondering if the party should have steered more money there.

And Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat, remarked that "we had no business winning those districts" due to their GOP allegiance.

Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff were competing to take the suburban Atlanta seat after the resignation of cabinet secretary Tom Price.

For GOP consultants, tie-every-Democrat-to-Pelosi is a tried-and-true strategy that's been working for more than six years.

Rep. Tim Ryan, D. "Thank God she was leading the House of Representatives during the passage of that". "That's all I'm going to say".

And replacing Pelosi with the last surviving blue dog Democrat would only make that problem worse.

Vela said he believes if the party sticks with the Pelosi in the top slot, it will hurt the efforts in the kinds of districts they need to flip to win back control of the House in 2018. "I am not pleased with a conversation going along the lines of, 'Well, we had a moral victory.' I don't like moral victories".

"Everybody knows where I stand on this".

"Karen was able to pull Republicans back together", said Jim Phillips, a 69-year-old retiree from Marietta who has volunteered on several Handel campaigns. And recent Democratic and Progressive losses is proving that ideology alone will no longer win elections.

Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, said the GOP would have seized on any Democratic leader to tar one of the party's candidates in a Republican-leaning district.

Ellison said the Georgia 6th was not as competitive as 64 other House seats that Democrats could win in 2018 to wrest control away from Republicans, adding, "They're the ones who better be anxious". "This is what they do".

The most expensive House race in history saw an incredible $55 million spent to get people to the polls.

According to the Washington Post, 25 states are controlled entirely by Republicans, meaning that both legislative bodies and the governorship are Republican-held. She slammed Republicans for secretively crafting the bill‚ which would slash tax credits for low and middle-income Americans who purchase their own healthcare.

"Southern voters are a totally different breed", he added.

Gerrymandering, for the uninitiated, has been required by Department of Justice - particularly in Southern states - in order to comply with Section 2 the Voting Rights Act to ensure minority representation by intentionally creating majority minority districts.

But Bliss said Pelosi attacks have broad resonance. Ryan wrote on Medium, without mentioning Pelosi.

Democrats argue that that is changing.

President Donald Trump earlier Thursday even tweeted he'd like her to stick around.

Ossoff harnessed a huge fundraising operation with more than 200,000 people donating to his campaign.
