Hope Dems Don't Force Pelosi Out, Would Be 'Very Bad' for GOP

24 Juin 2017

Cher is joining some Democratic lawmakers in blaming House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) for the party's loss in the Georgia special election runoff Tuesday.

Kathleen Rice, one of a small group who has gone public with the message that Pelosi should go, hosted a dozen Democrats in her office Thursday for an hour-long strategy session.

Moulton is one of the House Democrats who has been most vocal in calling for a new generation of leadership.

In a press conference, Pelosi said she felt "very confident" in her support in the Democratic caucus, despite some assessments that Democrats have lost a number of special elections in red districts this year because of Republicans' successful ability to demonize Pelosi and link Democratic congressional hopefuls to the minority leader. Democrats have to pick up 24 House seats to get back into power. That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!

The president wrote Thursday: "I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out".

Trump seems to enjoy the focus on Pelosi, taking another jab Friday after tweeting about her the day before. Pelosi was the focus of negative advertising casting her as a San Francisco liberal and linking her to the Democratic candidate.

She acknowledged the attacks but added: "I think I'm worth the trouble".

The main argument against Pelosi from her Democratic detractors is that more than 30 years in Washington and hundreds of millions of dollars in attack ads against her have taken their toll when it comes to public opinion.

"Do you think people went to the polls and said, 'Oh my God, we've got to stop Nancy Pelosi?' I don't think so", said Rep. John Larson, D-Conn. Democrats have been chafing in the minority since they were thrust there in 2010 after risky votes in favor of President Barack Obama's initiatives including the Affordable Care Act.

The apparent effectiveness of that messaging suggested to some that the 77-year-old Californian could be a liability for Democrats as they aim to regain their majority.

But Pelosi continues to command great loyalty from many in the House, and she insisted her position was not in jeopardy.
