Pelosi Claims Republicans Attacking Her Are Really Attacking San Francisco

"I'm a master legislator, I am a strategic, politically astute leader", said Pelosi, as she also touted her fundraising prowess.

Lifelong Democrat, San Francisco employment attorney and former Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign volunteer Stephen R. Jaffe will be running against Pelosi in the Democratic primary.

Pelosi's long period at the House Democrat helm has also made her a subject of GOP attack ads aimed at galvanizing Republican voters.

"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", said Massachusetts Democrat Seth Moulton on CNN.

Pelosi added that Republican opponents will always go after the other party's leaders - "and usually they go after the most effective leader".

But it could give Republicans a boost in confidence as they struggle to advance health and tax legislation bogged down by infighting and investigations into whether Mr Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in last year's presidential election. "'That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin" Chuck stay!'

President Donald Trump said he hopes House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi does not step down from her post.

Half of Democrats (49 percent) view Pelosi favorably, while 1 in 4 Democrats (26 percent) have an unfavorable view of her.

In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon Wednesday, Rep. Tim Ryan criticized his party's brand, their outreach to voters and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The response from some: It better be. Heading into the 2018 midterm elections they will need to pick up 24 House seats to recapture a House majority next November.

The House Democratic leader is seeking to reassure Democrats dejected after a loss in a Georgia special election where the party invested millions of dollars.

The Georgia race ends as the most expensive House campaign in US history, with a tab that may exceed $50 million. But last night, Republican Karen Handel was able to declare victory over Democrat Jon Ossoff. They worked perfectly in Georgia, ' said Gingrich, who used to represent the district in Congress that Ossoff just lost.

On Thursday, the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent out a press release attacking Nevada Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen over her ties to Pelosi.

The Congressional Leadership fund raised $6.2 million alone for Handel - about a third of the $18 million Handel's campaign raised from outside political groups.

"We don't agonize, we organize", she said of her party.

Meanwhile, the knives seem to be out for Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who was demonised by the GOP side in the Georgia race.

Rice's criticisms have been joined by a couple other Democrats.
