Trump and Republicans don't want Nancy Pelosi to go

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pelosi said Democrats are proud of the race they ran and she dispelled a question about stepping down.

Handel was not a stellar candidate, but as a former officeholder and longtime community presence, she was a comfortable choice for Republicans.

"What happened on that ballfield was a awful tragedy and we need to all continue to lift up Steve and the others who were injured that day", Handel said.

"I love the arena, I thrive on competition, and I welcome the discussion". "Well, I'm a master legislator".

Strictly looking at the data, Republicans are winning historically conservative seats-but Democrats are gaining ground, just not enough to win. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings. "They believe in us being better able to do it rather than the other side", said Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas. However, Handel's victory will probably head that off, allowing Trump and Congressional GOP leaders to convince their rank-and-file to support the party's program.

And the country's top Republican, President Donald Trump, did chime in, tweeting out Thursday morning: "I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out, ' Trump tweeted Thursday morning".

"In other words, the state Democratic Party is severely divided, as Ellis underscored after the party failed to win the seat in Georgia this week, taking to Twitter to declare, "#dem establishment hacks worst in biz.

Handel's victory allowed Republicans to hold onto a closely contested seat and deny the Democratic Party a chance to chip away at the Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

Democrats say Jon Ossoff's 48 percent showing in a Republican stronghold is proof that they're actually making progress toward making Georgia a genuine battleground. Where do we want to go as a party? The win was a district that was strongly Republican, that Karen Handel barely won and it was a fight. In fact, running against Pelosi does not move voters, and meanwhile, she keeps Democrats on point in the House. At least a decade'.

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

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.

Of all four districts up for grabs, Georgia 6th was touted by both the Republican and Democrat parties as indicative of the America's sentiment towards President Donald Trump. Veteran GOP ad-maker Brad Todd says that's because the San Francisco congresswoman is the personification of the liberal values they can't stomach.

But Pelosi continues to command great loyalty from many in the House, and she insisted her position was not in jeopardy. "If we don't, then I think it's incumbent upon her and all of us to reassess who our leadership should be".

When pressed to give a name of who might fill that void, Rice said, "I look to a lot of my colleagues now". 'Nor is it accurate. "That's the win for us today". We have to address that reality'.

"Everyone talks about how old and distinguished our party leadership is-these are very accomplished politicians, they are very good at what they do, but I think it's time for change and these election results show that", Moulton argued.

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

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

'I mean, I wish it wasn't true, ' he added. Ultimately, Pelosi still got support from about two-thirds of the caucus, though the 63 votes Ryan garnered were the most serious defection Pelosi has ever faced. That's the honest answer, ' Ryan answered.
