Pelosi says she has no plans to step down, and Democrats haven't found any viable replacements yet.

In the Georgia special House election won by the Republican candidate in what many regard as an affirmation of the Trump agenda, GOP ads tied Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff to Nancy Pelosi's "San Francisco values".

The challenge for Democrats, as pointed in Politico's reporting, is that there are no viable candidates to challenge Pelosi and take over the leadership. "If we don't, then I think it's incumbent upon her and all of us to reassess who our leadership should be". "I love the arena". I thrive on competition, and I welcome the discussion.

With some members doubting her abilities she sang her own praises.

"I am a master legislator", she boasted. I am a strategic politically astute leader.

"I feel very confident about the support that I have in my caucus", Pelosi said, according to NBC News.

Both Reps. Kathleen Rice, R-N.Y.

But Pelosi taunted Rice and others urging her to step down, issuing what sounded like a warning on Thursday, saying, "when it comes to personal ambition and having fun on TV, have your fun".

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.

Instead, he said Democrats need to focus on developing a message that wins over voters in Republican-leaning districts. "We know how to run against a Nancy Pelosi-run party". Win there and they're on the road to taking over the House in 2018. "At least another decade", Gingrich said.

On "The Fox News Specialists", Eric Bolling echoed the president's sentiments, pointing out that Democrats have lost more than 60 House seats with Pelosi as House speaker and then minority leader.

The wrong kind of US Open history: Top 3 all miss cut
With one more birdie on the back nine, Matsuyama carded a sparkling seven-under 65, matching Fowler for the low round of the week. The 28-year-old started day two with a one-shot cushion but a one-over-par 73 opened the door for a four-way tie at the top.

These Democrats might be on to something, especially in light of the way Pelosi figured into the Republican campaign in Georgia.

But most of all, America needs a party more devoted to getting things done than to hating President Trump.

They explain their totals includes money raised for the party not directly controlled by her committees. Republicans no doubt hope she will hang on.

In retort Thursday, Pelosi said, "I think I'm worth the trouble, quite frankly". Rice said. "No. That's not fair". 'Nor is it accurate.

Winning the sixth congressional district was always going to be an uphill climb for Democrats because of the district's strong GOP tilt.

"There are a lot of really important battles that we came out of on top of even as the minority", he said. Similarly, Massachusetts Representative Seth Moulton claimed that the group's ultimate goal would be to, as aforementioned, remove and replace Pelosi as House Minority Leader ahead of next year's midterm elections.

"I think there are people who would do it", he said.

While Republicans have mocked Pelosi's leadership in the past - the Republican National Committee sarcastically endorsed Pelosi for minority leader previous year - the party's successful strategy of linking Democratic congressional hopefuls to the unpopular minority leader has caused some Democrats to call for new leadership.

"I respect any opinion that my members have", she added.

"Our brand is worse than Trump", Mr. Ryan said. That's the honest answer, ' Ryan answered.

'She's less popular than Donald Trump in my district, ' Ryan admitted.
