White House paints Handel win as Trump triumph

Pelosi insisted Democrats still have a shot at winning the majority in next year's midterm elections, saying, "The House remains in play now".

The only congressional leader who Americans disapprove of about as much is House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is viewed unfavorably by 45 percent of Americans.

Many Democrat politicians and operatives want to get rid of the potential to stick Pelosi to future Democrat candidates running in not-so-liberal districts.

A dozen or so House Democrats want Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to go after a dispiriting loss in a House election in Georgia.

Wednesday, Pelosi wanted to spend her weekly press conference slamming the Republicans Senate health bill.

Democrats energized by opposition to President Donald Trump keep saying they like their chances for taking control of Congress in 2018 - and, of course, no one ever won by saying otherwise. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!"

She acknowledged the attacks but added: "I think I'm worth the trouble".

This isn't the first time that Pelosi, one of the most effective fundraisers in the country, has been challenged to leave her post as minority leader.

Perez said the Democratic candidates in the SC and Kansas special elections also narrowed the gap before discussing the 2018 races to take back the House. "I don't think people in the beltway are realizing just how toxic the Democratic Party brand is in so many parts of the country". They must pick up 24 seats to do so.

She then went on to call herself a "master legislator".

On "The Five" tonight, Jesse Watters said Pelosi fundamentally doesn't understand America or Americans.

Some hints of dissension is being seen on Capital Hill among the Democrats following the loss in the Georgia house race. "Those are beet red districts".

Pelosi has faced a growing chorus of criticism since Democrat Jon Ossoff came up short in Tuesday's Georgia special congressional election - the latest in a string of defeats for the party.

According to the New York Times, defending her position, Pelosi boasted about her effectiveness at the top of the Democratic party. While Pelosi did prevail with more than double Ryan's vote share, she also lost almost a third of her caucus in the process.

After that election political analysts debated that Democrats seemed to be more interested in talking about trans gender bathrooms than job creation. Many in 2018 will be more under-the-radar contests, like the SC race and the one in Kansas to replace Mike Pompeo, the Republican congressman selected by Trump to be Central Intelligence Agency director. "They're winning. So we have to address that reality".
