Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela: Pelosi 'doesn't help our candidate

Democratic Rep. Filemon Vela: Pelosi 'doesn't help our candidate

Since 2002, Pelosi has hauled in $568 million for House Democratic campaigns - including $141 million during the 2016 campaign cycle.

Rice's criticisms have been joined by a couple other Democrats. As long as the Democrats want to keep her at the top, I say to them, "Go for it".

That's because they think she helps them win elections.

Big donors to the party's congressional campaign committee were also available to Pelosi through her "Speaker's Cabinet" program, which gave them special access to the Democratic leader. Ryan made it clear after his failed bid to oust Pelosi in the fall that he wasn't planning to challenge her again and was just supporting the effort.

It was laughable to watch the Party of Losers come up with reasons for why they never had a chance in Georgia, or say that the margin of victory was an encouraging sign of future Republican weakness.

Nobody counts votes better than Pelosi - whether it's ginning up support for ObamaCare or marshaling votes for her own leadership contest.

But Pelosi continues to command great loyalty from many in the House, and she insisted her position was not in jeopardy. His 2015-16 giving was well behind Pelosi previous year, at $592,500. But Pelosi is so deeply entrenched in this narrative; she's been so demonized by Republicans, for so many years, that her presence could likely make it hard to win over new blood.

But it's her fundraising skills that are regarded as a key political asset.

The California Democrat said negative ads contributed to what she called a "wrap-up smear" in which negative ads are covered by the media, then repackaged by campaigns.

She was elected to Congress in a special 1987 election.

Obama on Senate bill: It's 'not a health care bill'
By making that change , the near-elderly working poor would be able to afford coverage, and the poverty trap would be eliminated. Elaine Rodriguez spoke for many parents saying her disabled daughter, Leandra, depends on Medicaid for medicine and oxygen.


Senate Health Bill Would Revamp Medicaid, Alter ACA Guarantees, Cut Premium Support
It also would provide more generous tax subsidies than the House bill to help low-income people buy private insurance. So it isn't any one factor. "I can't even begin to tell you what it would be like if the funding wasn't there".


Why Amazon Bought Whole Foods
The deal, ironic because of Amazon's reputation for hurting physical retail locations, still needs regulatory approval. The Amazon-Whole Foods combination could put even more pressure on those chains and other big grocery sellers.


Rep. Cedric Richmond, the Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, who many have touted as a rising star in the party, attended the session, according to three Democrats who also attended. She retains a devoted core of fiercely loyal supporters. I get why Pelosi refuses to admit there's a problem. She was also able to drive Republicans to cut out numerous demands Donald Trump had insisted be included in the agreement, most notably, financing for a wasteful wall on the southern border. Some are calling Pelosi's leadership "toxic", or saying "you'd have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top". Democrats would be wise to think twice before driving her out prematurely, and give in so easily to a tide of sexist hatred.

"The issue I think strategically is that Trump energizes their base and Leader Pelosi energizes their base", said Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, who was unsuccessful a year ago in trying to unseat Pelosi.

Yet neither Ossoff's campaign nor the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee attempted to tie Republican victor Karen Handel to Trump in a television ad even once.

Pelosi said that would be fine with her.

"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. "It's time for a new generation of leadership". "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!"

Pelosi said she believes the reason why the GOP has spent millions targeting her during elections is because she's "an effective leader".

But after what happened on Tuesday night in special congressional elections in Georgia and SC, I'm beginning to think the Democrats are never going to get exhausted of losing.

Pelosi brushed off the tweet, contending that Trump hadn't actually written it himself because "it's a classic Republican line".

"When asked, over 60 percent of voters preferred a congressman who would work with Paul Ryan, while only 28 percent chose Nancy Pelosi", CLF Executive Director Corry Bliss wrote in a memo on Wednesday morning.
