"It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down".
Representative Kathleen Rice from NY claimed that she's been approached by an increasing number of members of the Democratic caucus, telling her that the party needs to move forward with new leadership and without Pelosi. I had talked to some people here, Democrats and Republicans, who strongly supported Donald Trump, and I wanted to talk to them again, nearly a year later. "I thrive on competition".
American Christian children are being indoctrinated into Islam by the Common Core curriculum in public and private schools, and are forced to go to the bathroom with a pedophile/mentally deranged person who pretends or "feels" that he is a she. "I don't know how many 'moral victories' the Democrats are going to be able to stomach before they realize it's time to actually start winning".
While it's true that Mr. Ossoff's defeat to a relatively weak GOP centrist Karan Handel should be a wake up call for Democrats, it shouldn't turn into a nightmare by following Mr. Sanders off a cliff.
Rep. Tim Ryan (R-OH), who challenged Pelosi for the leadership a year ago, said on CNN: "The brand is just bad". The bad news is that there aren't that many other Republican-held districts with a lot of highly educated voters.
Ask House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi if she'll survive in her post as the top Democrat in the House of Representatives despite renewed criticism this week, and the San Francisco representative won't blink. "That still moves the needle", said Ryan.
Whilst there may be Democrats in the House plotting to oust Pelosi, that doesn't mean there's any clear successor to her.
"Nancy Pelosi was a great speaker".
The recent victories of the Republicans in two special congressional elections held this week should give the Democrats a heads-up of what could possibly take place in the 2020 #Presidential Election. One Republican strategist in charge of a wealthy super PAC said of Ossoff, "He wants to play dress-up and pretend to be a grownup and say, for five years he was a national security adviser when, in fact, he's just a spoiled frat boy, playing dress-up and advocating for underage drinking".
In May, Alexis Frank, a 26-year-old Democrat, lost a primary race for South Carolina's 5Congressional District.
"That's the first one I think he didn't write". To pull this off Handel had to keep her distance from Trump. Pelosi's enduring role as a Republican punching bag revived debate over whether her leadership is an electoral drag on the party, or if she is simply a convenient (female) symbol for attacks on liberalism that the GOP would level with or without her. "I'm a master legislator, I am a strategic, politically astute leader", said Pelosi, as she also touted her fundraising prowess.
Pelosi's potential successors have included former Rep. Rahm Emanuel - but he left the House to become Obama's chief of staff and later to run for mayor of Chicago.
The leadership of the House Democratic Caucus tried to put the best face on Tuesday's special election losses in Georgia and SC by saying they're making progress, and the GOP victories were much more narrow than in the past. As Rice pointed out, if Pelosi was a coach of a sports team with a comparable losing streak, she would have been fired. If he's the best Democrat that the party can recruit to run for a high-profile office in this state than Georgia's GOP can rest easier. "Personally I think it's time for a new generation of leadership in the party". But an even bigger challenge for Democratic leaders will be managing the intraparty fight between left-wing heretic hunters and more moderate forces hoping to rebuild Franklin D. Roosevelt's coalition of ideologically diverse allies.
