They actually had one of the people saying, "you know, it was a little rainy last night, maybe that was the difference in Karen's race". "And I don't think we're doing enough of that, and I think that's evident in this [Ossoff] race".
With the president's approval numbers hovering below 40 percent, should the Democrats be anxious about their losing streak in what could be considered an election year's pre-season?
The solution to these problems, Ryan maintains, lies in changing leadership and widening the party's appeal.
It's about all they can do. 'No, that's not fair, ' Rice said.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi representative of exhausted, ineffectual Democratic leadership?
Democrats, you lost. I really don't know what to say after this week's double-defeat in Georgia and SC.
The main argument against Pelosi from her Democratic detractors is that more than 30 years in Washington and hundreds of millions of dollars in attack ads against her have taken their toll when it comes to public opinion.
Following Ossoff's loss, a number of Democratic legislators made public calls for Pelosi to step aside to make room for younger lawmakers eager to present a new vision for the future of the party.
"This is certainly something that we have to discuss because it's clear that, I think, across the board in the Democratic Party, we need new leadership", the MA lawmaker said. "They keep winning and we keep losing". The race in SC went to the Republican as expected, though the margin of victory was a lot slimmer than most anticipated. Democrats need to pick up 24 House seats to retake the majority.
"We should stop talking about Trump all the time, and Russian Federation". Many of her campaign e-mails told supporters that Pelosi and the "resistance" were pouring millions into the district to sway the results in Ossoff's favor. I have enormous respect for her.
"We as Democrats have to come to terms with the fact that we lost again", said Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass.
No one ever gets exhausted of winning, especially a rookie politician that everyone in the establishment predicted would be a loser. "They vote based on ideas that the candidate has, and we have to speak more to the everyday working class people who look to us for leadership".
"Of course, there's a letdown after something like this", Owens said. "How are we going to get there?"
"He didn't write that", Pelosi said.
"I love the arena, I thrive on competition, and I welcome the discussion".
Several Democratic representatives, including Ryan, plan on discussing possible efforts to oust Pelosi on a meeting planned for Thursday.style="text-align: center;"
