Nancy Pelosi doesn't mind being sacrificial Lamb - at least metaphorically

Nancy Pelosi San Francisco

"The real issues are the ones that affect your lives".

Following Democrat Conor Lamb's apparent victory in the Pennsylvania special election, some have predicted a blue wave in the 2018 midterms, while others have suggested there could be a looming "civil war" between the moderate and progressive wings of the party. The attempt here to nationalize it by the Republicans- I think they need to get a new game book.

"I don't think that he ran against me the entire time".

During his campaign, Republicans attempted to tie Lamb to Pelosi.

"My opponent wants you to believe that the biggest issue in this campaign is Nancy Pelosi".

"This election was not about Nancy Pelosi", said Crowley. "I have a strong following in the country, and I don't think the Koch brothers should decide who the leader of the Democratic party is in the House". Pelosi blamed outside GOP groups for "demonizing" her and said they're targeting her because she's a San Francisco liberal who supports gay rights and protections for poor children.

Vladimir Putin easily wins another six-year term, say exit polls
VTsIOM said in a statement that over 37% of those polled refused to say whom they voted for. But some Russians reported being pressurised by their employers to show up and vote .

Pelosi said Thursday it was an "issues-oriented campaign", and said "the "D" next to his name was very significant".

During the lead up to Tuesday's election, Republicans compared Lamb to Pelosi, with one political action committee releasing an ad that slammed the Democratic candidate for making similar comments to Pelosi's "crumbs" remarks on tax reform.

"I just wanted him to win", she said.

Pelosi also wasn't phased by the prospect of more Democratic candidates saying they won't support her ultimately impacting her ability to remain as leader of the caucus.

"This election was not about Nancy Pelosi", the New York Democrat insisted.
