Learning From the Georgia Special Congressional Election

Pelosi, 77, has led the House Democratic caucus for almost 15 years, from the minority into the majority and back again.”Whether she’s a leader or not is up for the (Democratic) caucus to decide”, Moulton said.Their best chance was arguably in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, a suburban one near Atlanta where Donald Trump barely edged out Hillary Clinton previous year. The National Republican Congressional Committee said that internal data shows linking Pelosi to the Democratic candidate in Georgia helped the GOP win, according to Business Insider.During her press briefing on what was a very hard week for the Democratic Party, Pelosi said that she was aware of the sentiment against her, which is coming from her own party, but she has not hinted at leaving California politics behind.”We’ve let people say that Nancy Pelosi is some frightful person for so long without defending her that people started to believe it”.”I certainly hope the Democrats do not force Nancy P out”. As it stands, many members of the Democratic caucus still see Pelosi as their defacto leader and until a suitable challenger arises, she’ll remain just that.

Pelosi said with a nervous giggle.Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, on Thursday criticized Pelosi, saying that the Democratic brand is more toxic than Trump’s, which he said has led to Democratic losses in election races, like that one in Georgia.This allegation comes following the loss by the Democratic candidate John Ossoff in the special election for Georgia’s Sixth District after Trump nominated Tom Price as Secretary of Health and Human Services. Nancy Pelosi’s liberal agenda put America 20 trillion in debt, and Jon Ossoff is on her side.After that election political analysts debated that Democrats seemed to be more interested in talking about trans gender bathrooms than job creation. In this week’s election, Georgia voters, many of whom are skeptical of President Donald Trump and his tweets, demonstrated they nevertheless want more from an opposition than rants and adolescent rage over losing an election.
