Trump Says He Hopes Dems Don't Force Pelosi Out

And control of the House of Representatives could still be in play in the 2018 midterm elections. "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.

"I'm worth the trouble, quite frankly", snapped back Pelosi to her critics. In all four special congressional elections that have taken place since Donald Trump's election, Republicans have used attack ads to portray Democratic candidates as allies of Pelosi. 'And I hope that the Democrats keep her right where she is for a long, long time. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!" he tweeted. "They always want to choose our leaders and usually they go after the most effective leaders because they want to diminish the opportunity that we have", Pelosi said.

President Donald Trump is lashing out at top Democrats on Twitter.

Perez noted that Democrats are losing, but by encouraging margins, citing the April special election in Kansas' 4th district where he said Democrats were expected to lose by 30 percentage points but lost by less than 7.

The only way for Democrats to become more politically relevant is for them to win seats now held by Republicans.

"These are the kinds of discussions that we have to be willing to have as a party if we're going to be able to move forward and earn back the trust of working families across America", Moulton said. So it's time for change. "It's time for a new generation of leadership in the party".

Ryan, Pelosi's opponent last fall, said that Pelosi's continued role as the GOP's favorite bogeyman makes it "a heck of a lot harder" for Democrats as they try to notch victories in the GOP-friendly districts they will need to win next year. Democrats need to pick up 24 House seats to retake the majority.

"I sat in a meeting the other day, and I listened to a rationale as to how we should be happy as a caucus because we didn't lose as badly this past two days ago as we did a year ago", Rice said.

The Republican Party has spent tens of millions of dollars in attack ads attaching Democrats to her, Pelosi said. "Well, I'm a master legislator".

Pelosi, 77, has led the House Democratic caucus for almost 15 years, from the minority into the majority and back again. "We don't agonize. We organize".

Ms. Handel, an establishment Republican and former State Secretary of State, defeated Democratic challenger and political novice Jon Ossoff by about five percentage points, US television networks projected, denying Democrats what would have been their first election victory of the year.

Ossoff's race against Republican Karen Handel was the most expensive House race in history.
