More Democrats likely to disavow Pelosi after Pennsylvania stunner

Pelosi says she’s not hurting Democrat campaigns ‘We won'

In past congressional elections, Republicans have been able to make a boogeyman out of Pelosi, whose elitist left-coast progressivism is unpalatable to most of the country.

Okay, that may be an exaggeration. "I don't think that that had that much impact on the race".

She has good reason.

This will be the modus operandi for Democrats running in swing districts and in Republican districts, according to one campaign manager for a Democratic candidate running in such a district.

House Minority Leader Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D'Alesandro PelosiLawmakers feel pressure on guns Former Pelosi challenger: I have no "interest in running for leadership again" Congress punts fight over Dreamers to March MORE (D-Calif.) on Thursday rejected the notion that her controversial image is complicating her party's effort to win back the lower chamber this year, pointing to the Democrats' apparent victory this week in a deep-red Pennsylvania district as proof that attacks against her will have limited effect. Win or lose, they're in active discussions to ditch Pelosi as leader and replace her with a fresh face.

Now other Democratic hopefuls are looking to adopt Lamb's strategy - he repeatedly and bluntly disavowed the Democratic leader - in their own competitive races.

"One candidate in Texas went out and said he would not be for me and he came in fourth, he came in fourth so let's not read too much in to this", she said. There's no question that Republican voters dislike her, but that's very different from her actually having an effect on the outcome of any race. "So we have to make this change".

But anti-Pelosi rhetoric hasn't just come from Republicans and Lamb. Both of them have approval ratings of around 30 percent (see here or here), while Mitch McConnell is the really unpopular one; sometimes his approval is below 20 percent.

Nancy Pelosi said attacks on her by conservatives are "part of the bankruptcy of the Republican Party".

Barcelona 2 Athletic Bilbao 0: Messi and Alcacer secure comfortable success
Only against Sevilla (19) and Espanyol (18) has the Argentine player netted more goals for Barcelona . Barca have not lost at home to Athletic since 2001 and are so far unbeaten in the league all season.

Today we have two parties that are as far apart ideologically, and as internally unified, as they've been in any of our lifetimes.

But Pelosi brushed off Lamb's criticism - as well as the grumblings of other Democrats over the past year - during a Capitol Hill news conference Thursday.

"I don't think your opponents should choose your party's leaders", Pelosi said.

Three special Congressional elections remain to be resolved.

"There is a consensus, I think, that we can reach in the caucus that allows for a new leadership team to be put in place in a time that's well before, hopefully, November of next year", Rice continued.

Only a few Democratic candidates, such as Ken Harbaugh in Ohio's 7th Congressional District or Clarke Tucker in Arkansas's 2nd Congressional District, have said they wouldn't back the longtime party leader and fundraising powerhouse.

While Lamb deftly gave the impression that he was more conservative on issues such as abortion than his policy positions actually indicate, Republicans say it will be very hard for other Democrats to do the same, especially as many confront crowded primaries fueled by a progressive base.

"They're coming after me because of my city and because they're against LGBT, poor children", she said. After the 2016 election, 63 members of her caucus voted against her in the leadership election (though it's a lot more tempting to do that when your party just lost), and people speak more openly than they used to about her stepping down. "I think they need to get a new game book". There was a time when few Democrats would have questioned that assertion.
