House Democrats have no good alternative to Pelosi

House Democrats have no good alternative to Pelosi

Mrs. Pelosi pushed back against claims that she should step down, saying she's "a master legislator" and that those calling for her resignation have been against her for a long time.

Pelosi has never been one to seek the spotlight, but these days she's the only Democrat in the House who can command national attention. "I'm experienced in terms of knowing the institutional memory of the Congress".

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. The Georgia representative will be sworn in at the same time as SC special election victor Ralph Norman according to the report. Who could blame her?

The line in each call is pretty much the same - that the Democrats will never regain control of the House or even the Senate if Pelosi remains the "face of the party".
