DNC Chairman Tom Perez suggests Democrats could 'take 50 seats' in House


"That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!"

These Democrats might be on to something, especially in light of the way Pelosi figured into the Republican campaign in Georgia.

"Democrats both in our state and nationally have not learned their lessons from the loss in November", said Michael Joyce, a spokesperson for the Texas Republican Party. Rice said other Democrats she had spoken to were calling for new leadership across the board.

The Georgia race was seen by many as an early referendum on Trump.

Rice said she has significant respect for the long-serving California lawmaker, but not as the ongoing leader of the Democratic Party.

Handel also said that she would "absolutely" consider prohibiting gay and lesbian couples from adopting children. 'I believe she is not the leader for the future of the Democratic Party.

And after she predicted incorrectly that Democrats were poised to take back the House previous year, some of Pelosi's colleagues feel that this time around, she needs to deliver. 'Nor is it accurate.

"Obviously people are very concerned about where we are and they want to have a conversation about where we need to be", Rep. Tim Ryan of OH told reporters about why the group got together. We have to address that reality'. "So, we are paving a way for a new generation of leadership". This time I did. "When people said to us in '05 that you don't have a chance, be prepared for a Republican permanent majority, [former Senate Democratic leader] Harry Reid and I didn't accept that".

Or, Pelosi could announce prior to the midterms that she won't seek the leadership position again, as New York Rep. Kathleen Rice suggested to CNN Wednesday. "But, clearly, these ads using her, linking her to our candidates is still working".

'I mean, I wish it wasn't true, ' he added.

"And what they hoped by making it a referendum on Trump was by saying Trump is bad, Trump is terrible, that would be enough to win and they didn't", said Schultz. "And sometimes it's hard to get people who are in power, who are used to that, to say, 'You know what?" "The honest answer is in some areas of the country - yes, she is", Ryan said.

Wasserman also notes, interestingly, that races that attract huge turnout, such as the Georgia contest, show the capacity of Republicans to get their base to the polls when the stakes are considered high.

'I mean, we have all the ads done.

Overall, Wasserman found, Democrats outperformed the voting tendencies of their districts by 8 percentage points in this year's special elections, a good omen for 2018 even if they did not win a single one of the open seats. Nancy Pelosi's liberal agenda put America 20 trillion in debt, and Jon Ossoff is on her side.
