Republicans outwit Democrats again — Georgia Elections

26 Juin 2017

That's because they think she helps them win elections. They may not admit it to pollsters, but a lot of people are pulling for the president.

But for now, it's too soon to make predictions about the 2018 mid-term elections, when Democrats hope to retake the House and curb Trump's power on Capitol Hill. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" But the ashen, sour and dejected faces on CNN Tuesday night following Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff's defeat made the last 10 days of Republicans' worry and anxiety worthwhile.

She said she feels "very confident" in the support she has from her caucus, but claimed ownership over the "timing" for her role as minority leader.

Pelosi also has a long history of holding her party together through hard votes - enabling former President Barack Obama to shepherd into law a series of Democratic-backed measures in 2009 and 2010 and later forcing Republicans to grapple with the politically damaging divisions within their own ranks.

Why the relentless focus on the Democratic congresswoman from San Francisco?

She continues to command a great degree of loyalty from many House Democrats, and allies dismissed the idea that her position was in any kind of jeopardy.

When the top post among House Democrats might open up, though, Pelosi hasn't said.

"I think in this instance it had a motivating effect for our voters on the turnout front", Rogers said Wednesday.

"We need leadership change", Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., told CNN on Thursday. Tim Ryan said, "You know what? It's called democracy. Duh, that's not news", Pelosi said.

When it comes to personal ambition and having fun on TV, have your fun. She indicated Thursday that those members who play within the system are the ones she expects to one day lead the party, not the representatives complaining about her leadership. Ryan added, "I don't think it's fair".

"I'm saying this respectfully", Alexandra Pelosi, a 46-year-old Manhattan-based filmmaker, told ITK on Friday. In the last 20 midterm elections, the incumbent president's party has lost House seats in 18.

That non-answer didn't work - so some Democrats on Wednesday were going further in distancing themselves from the former speaker.

"This is certainly something that we have to discuss because it's clear that, I think, across the board in the Democratic Party, we need new leadership", the MA lawmaker said.

"Whether she's a leader or not is up to the caucus to decide", Moulton said. I have enormous respect for her. A quarter-century later, as The New York Times columnist Ross Douthat noted in a recent column, it's hard to find a center bloc in US politics any more. If elected, I will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker.

Still, Democrats would have massive gaps to fill if they were to oust Pelosi.

Trump's collapse in November - he beat Hillary Clinton by just 1.5 percentage points in a district that Mitt Romney had carried by 24 points four years earlier - was the sole reason national Democrats saw the race as potentially competitive.

Republicans say Karen Handel's victory in Georgia's 6th Congressional District proves the GOP is still the dominant party in Georgia. But history weighs heavily in favor of big Democratic gains, and Republicans are not resting easy.

The results of Georgia's 6th Congressional District election can be seen as a blueprint for how Democrats can win midterm elections.
