Democrats secretly met to plan the ouster of top party leader

Despite this, 30-year-old Ossoff almost won the initial election in April, with 48.1% of the vote.

Specifically, while Price was re-elected to his seat in 2016 by a margin of more than 22 percentage points, Donald Trump edged Hillary Clinton in the same district by a mere point.

And while Democrats have been on a losing streak lately - going down to defeat in all of the special congressional elections so far this year - she said that would turn around soon. Their action plan: Keep talking. "The Democratic Party needs new leadership now", he tweeted. Well, that turned out to be U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

It's about all they can do.

Democrats said they had turned a conservative stronghold into a competitive district.

Pelosi didn't give names when she referred to those who want her to step aside, but she called out those chose to go on television to criticize her, saying "have your fun".

The most expensive congressional election in history (around $50 million) left Democrats holding a mixed bag.

Criticism of Pelosi increased after Democrats lost in a House special election in Georgia this week, with Republican Karen Handel's win over Jon Ossoff. Besides, a Republican's or an Independent's antipathy for President Trump doesn't convert them into Democrats.

The apparent effectiveness of such attacks alarmed some fellow Democrats, and they show no signs of letting up. "Those two or three things came together to prevent us from winning that seat". President Reagan carried 49 states in the 1984 presidential race, but the GOP barely made a dent in the Democrats' House majority.

Handel was a good candidate who got better, said the former House speaker, while Ossoff did not live in the district where he was running. And we need a message-how are we going to get there? The "cloud" of a Russian Federation investigation and potential obstruction of justice investigation into President Trump could get a whole lot darker - or evaporate.

Trump's tweet not only implies that Pelosi hurts the Democratic Party, but it also means Trump actually agrees with some Democratic leaders, including Rep. Tim Ryan.

Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., who also attended the meeting, said, "in every corner of our caucus, we're concerned". Pelosi is one of the most well-known, yet least liked politicians in the country.

Aboard Air Force One Wednesday, White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said Handel's win was proof "the American people are resonating with the president's agenda" and want to see his it enacted. The sixth district is considered heavily Republican and has not been held by a Democrat since the 1970s. But Pelosi maintained that familiar GOP strategy only proves she is an asset. "I love the fray, I'm not disrespectful of people's views".

The veteran San Francisco congresswoman held up her fundraising numbers and track record maneuvering major legislation through the House and declared she was confident she had the support from her colleagues to continue in her post.
