Nancy Pelosi defends leadership following special election loss

She then went on to call herself a "master legislator". But Pelosi maintained that familiar GOP strategy only proves she is an asset. "And for a long time now, since I was elected whip and leader, it was always about 'do you support gay marriage?"

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, pictured, defended herself.

"We'd better take a good, long, strong look in the mirror and realise that the problem is us; it's the party", OH representative Tim Ryan said Wednesday morning as he left a closed-door meeting of the Democratic Caucus in the Capitol.

Pelosi said she respected critical opinions, but, "my decision to stay is not up to them".

Just ask Jon Ossoff, the guy who was supposed to emerge the victor of Georgia's special election - the guy who was supposed to trounce Karen Handel, and in so doing, underscore for President Donald Trump the fact his time had come and gone, and now the American voters want him gone.

The buzz in Washington surrounding the race for Georgia's 6th Congressional District was all bad for the last couple of weeks.

Eboni Williams said that Democrats are "delusional" and "living in an echo chamber" if they want to stick with Pelosi in the face of mounting losses.

Russian Federation launches six cruise missiles at Islamic State installations in Syria
Militants who survived the attack were later killed in airstrikes. "The Cailber missiles were fired from the frigates ". Russian warships fired six missiles on ISIS targets in Syria on Friday, according to state media.

One of those victories was won by Greg Gianforte (R-MT), who assaulted a reporter from The Guardian the night before the election and was sentenced to 40 hours of community service and 20 hours of anger management classes earlier this month, according to the New York Times.

Target Book publisher Darry Sragow, a longtime Democratic strategist, and research director Rob Pyers warned in a recent op-ed piece that the seemingly vulnerable Republican incumbents Democrats hope to oust are still pretty popular locally.

She acknowledged the attacks but added: "I think I'm worth the trouble". I think it's time for a new generation of leadership. "But, clearly, these ads using her, linking her to our candidates is still working".

"If we think we're going to win these elections because President Trump's at 35 percent, I think in districts like mine and certainly Georgia and SC, it takes more than that", said Rep. Tim Walz of Minnesota.

Back in 2001 Hoyer and Pelosi faced each other for the top leadership position inside the Democratic caucus, but have largely worked collaboratively in the top two slots for years. Democrats will need to pick up 24 House seats to take back the majority.

Ossoff was tied directly to Pelosi, and her San Francisco-centered base, in a number of Republican-funded campaign commercials targeting voters in the highly-educated and conservative suburban district he was hoping to win.

KAREN BASS: In the districts where we are truly competitive, I don't think that message is going to hold very much. "They don't have Clinton or Obama, so this is what they do". "I'm here to serve the caucus", he said. Jaffe supports Medicare-for-All, one big issue that Pelosi has come under fire over by her constituents. "We don't agonize, we organize". "So let's get started on winning the races where we really do have a chance".
