But he didn’t live in the district, and Handel was able to tar him as a Nancy Pelosi California liberal.

We have no questions in 2018 [if it’s] Nancy Pelosi versus Paul Ryan, and I hope that the Democrats keep her right where she is for a long, long time. “At least another decade”, Gingrich said.

Tuesday was a triumphant night for Republicans, winning 4 of 5 special elections, including the most expensive House race in USA history.

Advertisements tried to tie Pelosi to the Democratic candidate in that election, Jon Ossoff. “You have to look at the upside”, she said.

What The New York Times called “a demoralizing special-election defeat”, deepened a wide divide within the Democratic Party between those who are wary of trying to sell an undisguised left-wing agenda, and those who know better.

“The environment later means much more than environment now”, said Kyle Kondik, an elections expert at the University of Virginia.

“We need leadership change”, Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., told CNN.

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. “So let’s get started on winning the races where we really do have a chance”.

BENNETT: It’s a criticism rooted in generational angst about the future of the Democratic Party and its leaders. “We passed the Affordable Care Act, we passed Dodd-Frank”, she added. During Wednesday’s caucus meeting, Pelosi reportedly stressed to her fellow lawmakers that while the results have been disappointing, the party was making headway in districts that have been largely Republican-controlled for years.

“I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top”, said Rep. Filemon Vela (D-Tx.) to Politico on Wednesday. ‘I personally think that time is now’. The district was seen as within reach to Democrats because Trump won there last November by only 1 percentage point.
