"There's been a lot of coverage of the Russian Federation investigation, obviously focused last week on the devastating shooting here in Washington, Republicans have used all that news as cover to try to move a bill to the Senate floor that is deeply unpopular".
The Georgia victory was an important win for the Republican party, following Mr Ossoff's better-than-expected performance in the first-round election last month, but has left Democrats frustrated after a record-breaking funding drive failed to generate a win.
"The fact is, they will always make a target. Sen". As Rice pointed out, if Pelosi was a coach of a sports team with a comparable losing streak, she would have been fired.
Moulton acknowledged there was no candidate at the moment challenging the party leadership.
It's about all they can do.
When a reporter asked him if he thought House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi should be replaced, he would not say but did ask for an explanation from the party leadership. When it comes to her detractors, Pelosi said "my decision about how long I stay is not up to them".
Pelosi also responded to President Donald Trump's tweet that ousting her "would be very bad for the Republican Party". Ossoff and his opponent, Republican Karen Handel - who won the seat on Tuesday evening with 52% of the vote - spent a combined $50 million raised from national Democratic and Republican organizations.
The victories could boost Republicans' confidence as they struggle to advance health and tax legislation that has been bogged down by infighting and investigations into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in last year's presidential election.

Democratic challenger Jon Ossof was hoping to flip the historically red district by campaigning not just against his opponent, but also President Trump. A defiant Pelosi said she's "worth the trouble".
With Republicans controlling both chambers, and President Donald Trump in the White House, now isn't the right time for new leadership, she said.
And Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat, remarked that "we had no business winning those districts" due to their GOP allegiance. "Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost. But we have made a decision about where we're going on healthcare".
On "The Five" tonight, Jesse Watters said Pelosi fundamentally doesn't understand America or Americans. She has the "overwhelming support" of her caucus, she said.style="text-align: center;"
