Democrats' real problem is that Nancy Pelosi is their true face

"On immigration, for instance, public opinion had actually become modestly more liberal in the years leading up to Trump - but the Democrats are now nearly an open-borders party, so even modest skepticism about immigration tends to push voters toward the Republicans". Ossoff spent an unprecedented $23.6 million in his runoff campaign against Republican Karen Handel, who raised $4.5 million. Tim Ryan of Ohio, Seth Moulton of MA and Filemon Vela of Texas.

During Thursday's press briefing, Pelosi took several questions about her future in the role of minority leader for the Democrats.

Handel ran as much against House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her "San Francisco values" as she did against Ossoff, portraying the Democrat as culturally and politically alien to Georgia.

SETH MOULTON: Look. I think the Democratic Party has to come to terms with the fact that what we're doing isn't working, and it's time for some change.

"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.

And after she predicted incorrectly that Democrats were poised to take back the House previous year, some of Pelosi's colleagues feel that this time around, she needs to deliver. 'Nor is it accurate.

And she played down the significance of the Georgia race, pointing out how Ossoff reduced a 25-point Republican win in 2016 to a four-point win. We have to address that reality'. "There comes a time in every leader's life that they have to know it's time to leave and usher in the next generation of leaders".

"That's the first one I think he didn't write". 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 don't think it's fair, ' Ryan told Don Lemon. "The honest answer is in some areas of the country, yes, she is", he replied. 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 after Donald Trump took office and Republicans dove into their agenda of repealing former President Barack Obama's health care law, Democrats' united opposition papered over their divisions and their generational divides. "We have all the ads done".

Democratic leaders said there are at least 70 other districts that will be easier terrain for them than the one in Georgia after post-census gerrymandering in GOP-led states created so many heavily Republican districts.

"Nancy Pelosi was a great speaker".

"We don't agonize, we organize", she added.
