Renewed calls to oust Nancy Pelosi: Darcy cartoon

Renewed calls to oust Nancy Pelosi: Darcy cartoon

Gergen added that the odds of a Trump re-election is high and will continue to increase if the Democratic Party won't step up.

Put on defense, House Democratic leaders from Pelosi on down tried to spin the outcome in Georgia as positive, arguing that coming in a close second in the solidly Republican district augured well for their chances of taking back the House next year.

Pelosi spoke at a Democratic caucus meeting June 21 on Capitol Hill. "We haven't been talking about these direct economic issues that people are talking about", he said. Moreover, the race garnered the attention of the entire nation, including the likes of President Donald Trump. "Personally I think it's time for a new generation of leadership in the party".

Ryan told Lemon that earlier that night, another member of Congress, clearly a Republican, had pulled him aside and said, 'Please tell me you're not going to get rid of Nancy Pelosi, please tell me she's not going to retire because that's who I run against'.

"I think people need to stop talking about every single election as a referendum against Trump. every individual election has to be about the individual candidates in that geographical area", said Schiavoni.

Democrats have a target-rich environment next year, starting with 23 Republican-held districts where Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won a majority of the vote.

"Whether she's a leader or not is up for the (Democratic) caucus to decide", Moulton said.

In a blog post , Hayes outlines several options that Republican Senate aides could consider in place of the 30 percent surcharge. Cantwell said she and fellow Democrats will use "every tool we have" to halt the GOP plan, which could be voted on by next week.

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Ossoff would vote with Nancy Pelosi to weaken our military. Unless the Democrats start winning more than just moral victories against a deeply unpopular president, her days as party leader could be numbered. And anyway, parties don't win the House by winning the 24 (what the Democrats need) easiest seats; they fail to win some with a better partisan balance and pick off a few that look hard going in.

But Pelosi mocked the President, saying it was "the first tweet he didn't actually write" because it sounded like a statement many other Republicans have made recently.

Georgia's 6th Congressional District was the fourth district that the Democrats failed to turn blue, losing in Kansas, Montana and, on Tuesday, South Carolina.

By now Pelosi should have been pulled down from her perch as the Democrat's minority speaker of the House and replaced with someone who understands the political implications of Trump's win and how to deal with it.

Her victory Tuesday over Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia's 6th Congressional District means Republicans held all four of their seats that were up for grabs in special elections this spring.

The Georgia race ends as the most expensive House campaign in US history, with a tab that may exceed $50 million.

"She's easy to demonize".
