Dem Rep Crowley: GOP Attacking Pelosi in Congressional Races Is 'Sexist'

Dem Rep Crowley: GOP Attacking Pelosi in Congressional Races Is 'Sexist' Dem Rep Crowley: GOP Attacking Pelosi in Congressional Races Is 'Sexist'

"Top Democrats" who spoke to Axios' Mike Allen Thursday say that Democratic House candidate Conor Lamb's victory in the special election in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District has created "a new template for moderates" running for Congress. Lamb campaigned as a pro-gun, personally pro-life moderate (but wouldn't vote for 20-week abortion ban), who vowed he wouldn't support Pelosi for leadership.

Pelosi talked about the tens of millions of dollars in ads coming in from outside groups including the Koch brothers, "demonizing me as the leader of the Democratic party". "I don't really think that that had much impact on the race".

When asked about Democratic candidate Conor Lamb distancing himself from Pelosi Crowley said, "This election was not about Nancy Pelosi".

At least two other senior Democrats, Representatives Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland and Joseph Crowley of NY, are already actively laying the groundwork to seek the leader's job if Ms. Pelosi's position becomes untenable.

"I don't think he ran against me the entire time", the California Democrat said at a news conference on Capitol Hill.

Russian presidential elections result to be out tomorrow
For older voters, Moscow health authorities will be offering free cancer screenings at selected polling stations. Some 2 million Russians will cast their votes overseas . "After he brought Crimea back, he became a hero to me".

While Lamb did note on several occasions he was not supporting Pelosi, she doesn't believe that was a major pillar of his campaign. "I don't think he ran against me the entire time".

"She no longer will own this incoming class of Democratic freshmen", Harf said. "It's all a big lie", Lamb said in the ad. "It was a very issues-oriented campaign".

"Yes, I am a liberal", she said, but noted that "the misrepresentations, the denominations" that have put out against her are just like attacks Republicans have made against Democratic leaders for years and they won't matter.

However, Politico reported Wednesday that more Democrats are now likely to disavow Pelosi in competitive races.

She said the question for Democrats is if there are more candidates like Lamb out there.
