Pelosi on criticism of leadership: 'This is such a small item, it isn't about me'

The reality is that Pelosi represents one of the most liberal districts in the country's most liberal state.

"This is such a small item - it isn't about me".

Pelosi also stated she should stay because "I'm a master legislator". Under Pelosi's watch, the party has suffered two overwhelming midterm election losses as well as the mother of all upsets in last year's presidential election. After Handel's victory, some Democrats called for the party to drop Pelosi as its leader.

The Republican defeated Democratic challenger, Jon Ossoff, by 3.8 percentage points in the June 20 runoff vote, a greater margin than President Donald Trump led former Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton.

Republican Ralph Norman, a staunch conservative, had a 3 percentage point victory last week in a far quieter SC race in a district that went for President Donald Trump past year by 18 percentage points.

SC congressional candidate Joe Cunningham, a Democrat, said Wednesday that the Democratic Party needs new leadership, and that if he is elected to Congress in that state's 1st District, he won't vote for Pelosi for a leadership position.

"I think you'd have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top", Rep. Filemon Vela (D., Texas) said. She's a wealthy, Bay Area progressive.

Pelosi has been under fire by critics in her party who look to the recent special elections - in which Democrats lost to Republicans in all four cases - as a further sign that it is time for new party leadership.
