Pelosi defends leadership following special election loss

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif. speaks to reporters during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 22, 2017.

The outcome also raised questions about the future of House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. Heading into the 2018 midterm elections they will need to pick up 24 House seats to recapture a House majority next November. "So let's get started on winning the races where we really do have a chance". Remember when the Democrats proclaimed that Republicans would pay heavy prices in special elections for going after Obamacare? A group of her critics met Thursday in New York Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice's office, though it was not clear what if anything would come of it.

"I'm in my 10th term and I certainly have never seen someone who is smarter in the kind of backroom maneuvering that Nancy Pelosi does", said Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill.

When asked by NBC News' Alex Seitz-Wald about "a change at the top", Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) said, "We're always reviewing that, believe me".

That did not stop Trump from weighing in on Twitter, urging voters to support Handel before the election and celebrating her victory afterward.

"She just doesn't help our candidates in those swing districts with independent voters and Republican voters", Vela said on CNN's "Newsroom" Friday.

"I respect any opinion that my members have but my decision about how long I stay is not up to them".

Just hours before the news conference, moderate Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice of NY reiterated her call that it was time for Pelosi to step aside.

Lifelong Democrat, San Francisco employment attorney and former Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign volunteer Stephen R. Jaffe will be running against Pelosi in the Democratic primary. "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". Many of her campaign e-mails told supporters that Pelosi and the "resistance" were pouring millions into the district to sway the results in Ossoff's favor.

The House Democratic leader is seeking to reassure Democrats dejected after a loss in a Georgia special election where the party invested millions of dollars.

"The Democratic Party needs new leadership now", Cunningham tweeted. The CBC includes roughly 40 House Democrats, many in senior leadership and committee positions, including Pelosi allies. Just remember, she still has the support of a vast majority of her colleagues-and the betrayal won't go unnoticed.

She may very well be the legislator that she fancies herself to be, but one thing she is not is a national figurehead who can rally voters for other candidates around the country.

Pelosi:"I'm worth the trouble". "Time to move forward and win again", tweeted Joe Cunningham, a Democrat who is running against Rep. Mark Sanford in SC. In 15 years, she's raised nearly $570 million for Democratic campaigns.
