Nancy Pelosi Faces Heat From Democrats After Georgia Loss

And they've been winning a lot.

When a reporter asked him if he thought House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi should be replaced, he would not say but did ask for an explanation from the party leadership. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' (Senate Minority Leader) Chuck (Schumer) stay!"

The thank you to Trump was Handel's most public show of support of the man who wasn't embraced by many voters in the well-educated suburban Atlanta district in November and who she handled delicately throughout a primary and runoff election to fill the congressional seat vacated by Tom Price to take a spot in Trump's cabinet. After she was re-elected Democratic leader, the Republican National Committee unfurled a banner that read "Hire Pelosi" outside its headquarters. One of their ads even features the Bay Area and branded the two Democrats together, putting his photo alongside hers on the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. That drew criticism of Pelosi from fellow Democrats.

Norman won Mick Mulvaney's seat in South Carolina's 5th District. I don't think it's fair.

When the astonishingly awful health plan is finally made public and people watch their parents, children, siblings and friends be denied health care, and when they experience the full horror of President Trump's foreign policy, Democrats will win in district after district, if they do the groundwork that is always necessary to win elections.

Moulton backed Pelosi's challenger Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in 2016.

The spin began as the New York Times tweeted that "Handel averted a humiliating upset for Republicans".

When he's back home, Murphy said, he sometimes chats people up on a commuter bus, and "they are never talking about issues like Russian Federation". "She said nice things about the president". That doesn't mean Republican and Democratic strategists won't try to take lessons from GA06 and try to apply them to the future. Democratic Party divisions are on stark display after a disappointing spec.

"Nancy Pelosi was a great speaker", Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., said on MSNBC.

Justices take on fight over partisan electoral maps
A lower court ruled that the maps were unconstitutional, and mandated the state come up with different maps by November 1. They said the federal court overstepped its bounds and judges should stay out of an inherently political exercise.

Pelosi's most logical challenger would be Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., 55, the House Democratic Caucus chairman. CNN's Don Lemon even likened him to Barack Obama. His 2015-16 giving was well behind Pelosi a year ago, at $592,500.

Others on the social media platform defended Pelosi saying that it's hard to find an adequate replacement and that this is another example of a strong woman being blamed for something that wasn't her fault.

(2) Seth Moulton, a congressman from MA and former Iraq war veteran, who tweeted that the loss should be a "wake up call" for Democrats.

Trump's election as president had papered over the intraparty disputes and generational divides among House Democrats, as lawmakers joined in opposing the White House and trying to channel the energy of their party's liberal base.

Joe Cunningham, a Democrat who wants to challenge Republican Rep. Mark Sanford in SC next fall, announced his break with the longtime party leader. "It's time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team". "Time to move forward and win again", tweeted Joe Cunningham, a Democrat who is running against Rep. Mark Sanford in SC.

And Democrats have a target-rich environment for next year's midterms, starting with 23 Republican-held districts where Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won a majority of the vote.

So evidently it's Ossoff's opponent's fault that Democrats raised and spent millions in money from outside Georgia in an attempt to defeat a Republican in a conservative district - all in order to send Donald Trump a message that ultimately ended up backfiring.

Under the circumstances, that sounds feasible, and Democrats have been staging protest rallies in those seven districts, often packing "town halls" to denounce Obamacare repeal efforts. But their reluctance left Ossoff running on a milquetoast message, allowing Republicans to drive the narrative that he would be a Pelosi lackey on Capitol Hill. Trump was thus disliked enough to give Ossoff a chance, but not so unpopular that "a screechingly anti-Trump campaign", as Fallon put it, would have gone over well.
