Democrats Realize 2010 'Fire Nancy Pelosi' Campaign Has Been Working

Postado Junho 25, 2017

"You've got to do what Donald Trump did on the right". And Democrats are struggling to translate the energy of their core supporters into actual election victories.

Democratic Party divisions are on stark display after a disappointing special election loss in a hard-fought Georgia congressional race. The district has been a Republican stronghold since Newt Gringrich won in 1974.

"When it comes to personal ambition and having fun on TV, have your fun", Pelosi said.

Mrs Handel said at her victory rally that she knew it was going to "require all hands on deck" for Republicans to hold on to the district.

GEOFF BENNETT, BYLINE: Democrats have racked up defeats in Kansas, Montana and, as of last night, SC and Georgia. 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.

It's come to this: For leadership that doesn't repel a majority of Americans, Democrats need to recruit someone who doesn't represent the truth about their party.

Democrats have also criticised Republicans for devising their plan behind closed doors and without congressional scrutiny.

Republican strategist Brian Robinson told Elliot that he believes Handel's win will be a blueprint for other Republican Congressional candidates looking to win in a district where President Trump may not be popular.

KAREN BASS: In the districts where we are truly competitive, I don't think that message is going to hold very much.

"I don't make this statement lightly - I've never said it before", Lujan wrote. Democratic Party divisions are on stark display after a disappointing spec. In the face of some fellow Democrats called for her to step down following a major defeat in a special election Tuesday, Pelosi proudly touted her effectiveness, saying she was "a master legislator" and a "strategic, politically astute leader".

Ryan said Pelosi stands in the way of the party's goal of flipping control of the House back in their favor for the first time since 2010. The question of whether the Democratic Party can succeed in district races preoccupies many, including the San Diego Union-Tribune Editorial Board.

Moulton backed a longshot challenge to Pelosi's leadership post from Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan last fall.

In retort Thursday, Pelosi said, "I think I'm worth the trouble, quite frankly". She praised Ossoff as "a candidate who was young and enthusiastic, and attracted national support". Millions were spent on both sides - tons of money coming via liberal California in support of Democrat Jon Ossoff who was essentially hand picked by House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California. In the end, the Republican - and in the eyes of many, Trump - won handily.
