Trump and Republicans don't want Nancy Pelosi to go

That leaves Georgia Democratic Chairman Dubose Porter and other Democrats claiming some hope from Ossoff's defeat as both parties look ahead to the 2018 elections, when Democrats will try to dent Republicans' monopoly on statewide offices and the legislature.

CNN had four of its regular panelists on to cover the election result: politics editor Mark Preston, political analyst Gloria Borger, political director David Chalian and reporter Dana Bash, according to Fox News Insider. "Nancy Pelosi has been an effective bogeyman for Republicans for decades, and it just seems like it's time for her to go", an unnamed Hillary Clinton staffer told the New York Post.

They explain their totals includes money raised for the party not directly controlled by her committees.

"I don't think people in the beltway are realizing just how toxic the Democratic Party brand is in so many parts of the country", he said before pointing to Pelosi as one of the causes for that. But the Pelosi attacks on the House side have been consistent for years. Moulton supported Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan in his failed bid for Democratic leader.

"There are a lot of really important battles that we came out of on top of even as the minority", he said.

Pelosi said she didn't want to hear Republicans "all of a sudden be sanctimonious" as if they had "never seen such a thing before".

But it's her fundraising skills that are regarded as a key political asset. "But we don't agonize, we organize - organize inside the House and mobilize outside for the good of the American people", she wrote.

There's a contrast between the special election in Georgia's 6th District and the three other special elections in districts with far lower percentages of college graduates (23 to 31 percent) - Kansas's 4th District, Montana's at-large district and South Carolina's 5th District.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich also spoke of the potent tool Pelosi is for Republicans to use against Congressional Democrats. She retains a devoted core of fiercely loyal supporters.

"He's just not one of us", her ads said, and this message was reinforced by tying him to House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi - and perhaps inadvertently by Ossoff's own promise to "grow metro Atlanta's economy into the Silicon Valley of the South".

As the map stands now, Democrats arguably don't need to take a win in Georgia to take back control of the House for the first time since 2010. Tim Ryan of Ohio, Seth Moulton of MA and Filemon Vela of Texas.

With Jon Ossoff's loss to Karen Handel for the U.S. House seat vacated by HHS Secretary Tom Price in Georgia's 6 District Tuesday night, Democrats have been winless in their effort to punch a hole in President Donald Trump's shining armor. I pulled the candidate aside and began peppering him with questions. "She is a great leader".

"We need leadership change", Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) told CNN. That embrace of ideological diversity kept Republicans in the political wilderness for 40 years, and I saw the strategy's impact firsthand during my time in Congress, even during a period when Republicans were in control of the House.

Democrats came close but still lost in special elections in Kansas, Montana, Georgia and SC.

Pelosi is a prolific fundraiser for her party, and a savvy legislator with few rivals on Capitol Hill when it comes to cutting the deals necessary to keep government in motion.

But at her weekly press conference, Pelosi shrugged of concerns that she was dragging down the party. "If we don't, then I think it's incumbent upon her and all of us to reassess who our leadership should be".
