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

And Republicans say just narrowing the margins in red districts still spells a loss.

Representative Kathleen Rice from NY claimed that she's been approached by an increasing number of members of the Democratic caucus, telling her that the party needs to move forward with new leadership and without Pelosi. Ryan also publicly questioned the efficacy of the Democrats' brand. Despite such seemingly reckless spending, almost eight in 10 voters said they were not affected by the seemingly endless TV ads by each side slamming the other. "This is not about me. How are we going to get there?"

"The whole Democratic message under Pelosi is built on fantasy", Watters said.

The loss in Georgia followed similar disappointments in special House elections in Kansas and Montana, as well as in South Carolina Tuesday night.

Pelosi, a longtime representative from San Francisco and a prolific fundraiser, has held the top party spot since 2002, including four years as speaker between 2006 and 2010. At least during her leadership election, despite the public lashing she took by a number of lawmakers she was re-elected 134-63 by a secret ballot.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is telling Democrats that next year could be the year they take back control of the House.

Seven years later, and they've only made marginal gains. "And anxious. There's an opportunity in 2018 historically".

He added, however, that "History ... is not always prologue".

Pelosi's defiant comments came as Democrats remained angry and divided after throwing some $30 million into a House race in Georgia on Tuesday, only to end up with a loss that wasn't even very close.

"The honest answer is in some areas of the country - yes, she is", Ryan said". "That does not play well in Georgia, in OH and other areas. He just didn't get the nomination", she noted to more applause from the audience.

Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff lost the special congressional election on Tuesday night to Republican candidate Karen Handel by nearly 4 points. We know exactly how to run against the Nancy Pelosi-run party. Republican Ralph Norman beat Democrat Archie Parnell by around 3 percentage points in SC, closer than expected and a warning sign to the GOP not to take any seat for granted. I'm a strategic, politically astute leader.

Behar then angrily noted that Ossoff "didn't even move into the district". We need to find a different path. We don't have either one of those. But in the end Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a race to replace the vacancy left by President Trump's Health and Human Services appointee Tom Price.

Pelosi is a prolific fundraiser for her party, and a savvy legislator with few rivals on Capitol Hill when it comes to cutting the deals necessary to keep government in motion.

"I love the arena, I thrive on competition, and I welcome the discussion". "My caucus is overwhelmingly supportive of me".

"Usually they go after the most effective leaders because they want to diminish the opportunity that we have", Pelosi said.

OH could prove a hard testing ground for Ryan's suggestions.

Though Ossoff pitched to moderates on the economy, ads from both sides focused heavily on his support of and Handel's opposition to Planned Parenthood, and it's fair to ask whether the more than $700,000 Planned Parenthood itself spent on the race hurt or helped its candidate. None of the 2016 races were seriously contested on Election Day.

"Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O!", Trump tweeted early Wednesday.
