After several Democrats allegedly suggested House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi step down, she defended her leadership which has lasted more than a decade.
The Democratic party has attempted to ‘overthrow’ the Trump administration’s plans, but everything they seem to do fails. Some Democrats are frustrated by this constant loss, one of which being how the party lost the seat in Tuesday’s special election in Georgia. Again, several Democrats went even further stating that if Pelosi didn’t step down, they wouldn’t win the House next year.
Additionally, the head of the campaign arm of the DNC Rep. Ben Ray Lujan defended Pelosi saying,”Being leader is a tough responsibility, and there’s no one who works smarter and around the clock than Leader Pelosi. We are going to keep working hard — we know that we all as a Democratic caucus have to come together and stand together to make sure we are strong messengers, that we are reaching out across the country to earn and maintain the trust of the people across America.”
Pelosi, like all good politicians, Pelosi managed to brush aside the comments during Capitol press conference. Oddly enough, she also said she was honored by the support she had:
“I thrive on competition and I welcome the discussion. But I am honored by the support.”
As Pelosi went on to talk about the special election loss, she put a positive spin on it saying Republicans won in much far fewer margins than previous years. She went on to say:
“By all accounts, if you’re a Republican, this is not good news to you.”
