Some House Democrats mull over how to oust Pelosi as leader

Dem rep on Pelosi'It's time for people to know when to

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended her leadership, and her job, on Thursday in the face of needling from President Donald Trump and grumbling from fellow House Democrats exasperated after a high-profile special election loss. Ryan said they did not emerge with "any action items". We know exactly how to run against the Nancy Pelosi-run party.

BENNETT: Another reason why Democrats shouldn't feel all that demoralized is Karen Handel's slim margin of victory, says House Democratic Caucus Vice Chair Linda Sanchez.

A successful Republican strategy in Tuesday's race for Georgia's 6th Congressional District included promoting a relentlessly anti-Pelosi message to drive out the conservative base.

"That was [former Speaker of the House] Newt Gingrich's old seat, heavily gerrymandered by Georgia", Perez said.

"If you look at our history, the last three times we have had single-party control ... the following midterm election, the party out of power won 28 seats", he said.

Following unsuccessful attempts in recent special elections in Montana and Kansas, the Democrats were hoping to slam the Republicans on Tuesday.

BILL PASCRELL: They demonized Nancy in 2010.

Let me pause here to say that just as winning this race for Republicans was a morale booster, losing this race definitely kicks Democrats in the gut. And that's my concern. "The fact is that when we need to redistrict our country so when we get the majority of the votes in the country, it is reflected as the majority of the votes in the congress". We need a vision-where are we going?

After attending the meeting on Pelosi's future, Representative Richmond, the head of the Congressional Black Caucus, suggested the solution might be changing the narrative surrounding the minority leader, not ousting her.

"We're paving a way for a new generation of leadership, and I, again, respect any opinion that members have, but my decision about how long I stay is not up to them", she said.

Ryan was asked on CNN whether Pelosi is more toxic in today's discourse than President Donald Trump is.

Pelosi said that would be fine with her. According to CNN, Pelosi has helped the Democratic Party raise some $568 million since 2002.

"That's the first one I think he didn't write". Her left-wing agenda is easy for the GOP to attack - something they'll likely keep doing. He tried and failed last fall to unseat Pelosi as House minority leader. "And I personally believe that time is now. Every attack provokes a massive reaction that is very encouraging to me from my members, from our supporters outside and across the country".

"This is not personal". Republicans-and some Democrats-are playing the blame game and their fingers are pointed at Nancy Pelosi.
