Jon Ossoff reflects on his race: Republicans 'should be sweating'

Pelosi was targeted by critics after some members of the Democratic party blame her for a Republican victory in a Georgia special election the week of June 19. In 2016, the Democrat lost the seat by 16.2 points.

Rep. Klarides-Ditria said, "Democrat leaders are throwing up their hands and showing that they aren't capable of producing a budget and meeting budget deadlines".

"A common argument is that fervent Republican opposition to Pelosi is more potent than her lukewarm Democratic support", said Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult co-founder and chief research officer. Republicans have also sharpened their attacks against the leader, and a House GOP Super PAC said this week they would focus on Pelosi during the 2018 midterms, as Republicans have done in previous midterm elections to rally their base.

Without a Democrat in the White House to be at the center of the GOP's ire, Pelosi has already been used in political ads in at least two of this year's four special elections for Republican-held seats.

"While results pointed to different sets of key issues from one district to the next, we did find a common denominator: Nancy Pelosi".

The drastic losses suffered by House Democrats in the 2010 and 2014 elections had the seemingly contradictory effect of helping Pelosi. Why?

Mr. Trump said that China had not succeeded in getting Pyongyang to curb its nuclear and ballistic missile programs. But it's a bit much to pin that on Pelosi. A big part of that spending will be Pelosi-themed messaging.

Wisconsin AG Plans to Appeal Dassey Decision
Maryland , a 1963 ruling that requires prosecutors to turn over exculpatory findings that could exonerate defendants. The death of Halbach and the conviction of Avery and Dassey placed Manitowoc County in the national spotlight.

"There was never an agreement on the $200 billion", said North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, the leader of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. He opposed abortion, but then flipped in 2015 and announced his support for reproductive choice.

Ryan may well have a future as a national Democratic leader, but Nancy Pelosi is the wrong scapegoat. Search the words: Pelosi, shrill, woman of a certain age, and hectoring, and you'll get the drift.

Among those images that Republican voters have been trained to hate was that of Nancy Pelosi. Some begged for advice on how to stop the calls, text messages and door-knocks; many said that they didn't stop even after they voted early.

Pelosi has fought back tenaciously, saying she isn't going anywhere, and she has a majority of supporters in her caucus, such as Tampa U.S. Representative Kathy Castor, who continues to stand by her despite the growing criticism of her tenure. Still, that admission didn't keep voters in the affluent district from electing her.

As Ossoff pollster John Anzalone told Politico: "We just ran out of Democrats and independents". The races in Kansas and SC, it turned out, were more winnable, but got nearly no attention or resources. The Georgia seat went only narrowly for Trump a year ago, even though it strongly backed Tom Price, who resigned to become secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. There's no one else among House Democrats who could come close to touching that number.

We're not afraid to take on anyone, especially the Washington Establishment-Republican or Democrat. One last-minute ad even tried to link the Democrat with unnamed elements of "the violent left" who were allegedly cheering the Scalise shooting.
