House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif. arrives for a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 22, 2017. Al Gore led the party back to the White House. But in the second half of her 15 years as caucus leader, the Democrats in the House have been in a steady decline, losing the House majority in 2010, and continuing to lose seats. "I am a master legislator". I'm a strategic, politically astute leader.
The reality is that Pelosi represents one of the most liberal districts in the country's most liberal state. "But her time has come and gone", Kathleen Rice, a Democratic congressman from NY, said on MSNBC yesterday morning.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee funneled $5 million into Georgia's 6th District, where voters also selected a Republican on Tuesday in what became seen as a test for Republican strength in the nascent Trump administration. Twice. In Georgia and SC. Right? They lost every one of the four recent House special elections, in Georgia, South Carolina, Kansas, and Montana. They must pick up 24 seats to do so.
There's also an even more basic reality: Showing that the party will dump its leader if Republicans are persistently negative enough about that leader only gives the GOP more incentive to use aggressive tactics - and puts the next Democratic leader on tepid ground from the outset. A group of her critics met today in New York Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice's office, though it was not clear what if anything would come of it.
"As long as Leader Pelosi is perceived as the leader of the House Democratic Caucus Republicans are going to continue to spend millions and millions of dollars in those swing districts to convince those swing voters, those independent voters, those Republican voters who might go our way, not to vote for our Democratic candidate because of Leader Pelosi", Vela said.
"Well, I am chair of the Congressional Black Caucus and I will do what my membership dictates", Richmond said. Trump wrote, referring to Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Pelosi certainly has her problems - this is one of the few things Republicans and Democrats can agree on. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party", he tweeted.
The apparent effectiveness of such attacks alarmed some fellow Democrats, and they show no signs of letting up. In this year's special election to replace Mulvaney, Republican Ralph Norman beat Democrat Archie Parnell by a mere 3 percentage points.
"Basically, it might have been a bigger victory for the Republicans had the national Democratic party gotten more involved, and there were more outside money spent in SC", said Knotts. "And usually they go after the most effective leaders".
Pelosi:"I'm worth the trouble".
The frustrated Democrats met in Rice's office a day earlier to discuss their options as they face long odds of knocking out the woman who has led the Democratic caucus for almost 15 years from minority to majority and back, raised tens of millions of dollars and has had multiple legislative successes.
The challenge for Democrats, as pointed in Politico'sreporting, is that there are no viable candidates to challenge Pelosi and take over the leadership. Hillary Clinton lost 41 percent of the populist voters that Barack Obama won in 2012 - and lost Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin and the election as a result.
