Nancy Pelosi: 'I'm worth the trouble.' Conservatives agree

"And yes, she is a great fundraiser, but if the money we're raising through her leadership is not helping us win elections, then we have to have this conversation now", Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Ny.) said on MSNBC Thursday. She was referencing other Democrats speaking their mind on news shows. "I would be very disappointed if she did", Trump said.

Following Ossoff's loss, Democrats were quick to point out that the Georgia district was gerrymandered, that it had been in Republican hands since Newt Gingrich held the seat, and that Handle won a close race, while her Republican predecessor had won by a large margin. Throughout the two-month campaign, Republican candidate Karen Handel consistently labeled Democrat Jon Ossoff "Nancy Pelosi's handpicked candidate".

"There comes a time when every leader has to say, 'For the good of the order and the betterment of the party, it's time for me to step aside.' And I wish that that would happen right now", said Rice.

Democrats and others on the left are reading some interesting things into the GOP win of Georgia's 6th District.

"I agree with Trump and I'm all for Pelosi", Bolling said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) brushed off concerns raised by some in the House Democratic Caucus that she is dragging them down in competitive races, saying her legislative and fundraising prowess make up for any downsides to being seen with her. "Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason Ossoff lost".

Macron's party claims parliament victory despite low turnout
The FN leader is now a lawmaker in the European Parliament but is hoping to win a legislative seat in France for the first time. French far-right leader Marine Le Pen lamented "catastrophic" low turnout in the first round of voting.

Despite the districts long Republican ties, the fact remains the district was winnable for Democrats, with Trump having won the district by only one percent. She's also expected to become one of the most closely-watched junior lawmakers in Washington given the symbolism of her win.

Is Pelosi the proper scapegoat for all the woes of the Democratic party in the Trump era?

"I think I'm worth the trouble, quite frankly", she concluded.

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.

The president was on the mind of Democrats gathering for their weekly conference meeting Wednesday morning - but frustrated members made it clear they would find their own way forward after the disappointing losses.

"The issue I think strategically is that Trump energizes their base and Leader Pelosi energizes their base", said Rep.
