Congressman Ryan says party's message is why Democrats losing elections

"Nancy Pelosi was a great speaker". No other potential up-and-coming Democratic challenger to her leadership comes close.
"Obviously people are very concerned about where we are and they want to have a conversation about where we need to be", Rep. Tim Ryan of OH told reporters about why the group got together.
Many political pundits have suggested that the widely held perception of Pelosi as a Washington insider and a San Francisco liberal might not be beneficial to Democrats seeking office in blue-collar and/or Republican-leaning congressional districts.
House Democratic leaders are taking some comfort in coming in a close second for a seat that's always been firmly in GOP hands.
So while Pelosi took heat from some party colleagues after Democrat Jon Ossoff lost his bid for a Georgia House seat, and found herself grilled hard by reporters at her weekly press conference Thursday, she will survive.
"What's really important is that Donald Trump has seized the narrative back, that he's doing better with the voters than Democrats think he is", he said.
Pelosi has led House Democrats for almost 15 years, at one point as House speaker and more recently as minority leader. Ryan made it clear after his failed bid to oust Pelosi in the fall that he wasn't planning to challenge her again and was just supporting the effort.
Pelosi isn't in danger of losing the leadership perch she's long held, though she did fend off her toughest challenge ever last fall from Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, who argued the party needed someone who better understood the rural, working-class voters that were critical to President Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton past year.
Trump Says He Didn't Tape Conversations With Comey
At an off-camera briefing for White House reporters, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to put the issue to bed. Mr Trump has seized on that statement as vindication, though the investigation continues, as do congressional inquiries.
"We should stop talking about Trump all the time, and Russian Federation".
"The brand is just bad", Ryan said.
Trump seems to enjoy the focus on Pelosi, taking another jab Friday after tweeting about her the day before.
Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton, another outspoken critic, also attended, according to sources - and some in the group continue to point to the Iraq war veteran as a young member who could be cultivated to run.
"I'd like to keep her right where she is, because our record is extraordinary against her", Trump said in a Fox News interview.
Rep. Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico, who chairs the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that invested millions in the race, argued in a memo to lawmakers, "Despite the loss, we have a lot to be proud of" and "we have a unique opportunity to flip control of the House of Representatives in 2018".
Pelosi insists Democrats still have a shot at winning the majority in next year's midterm elections, saying, "The House remains in play now". "We're a family. We're going to have those discussions". I love the arena.
Pelosi said that would be fine with her. She said she would have voted for the House Republican health care bill, though she sometimes misrepresented its provisions in debates with Ossoff.
Cindy also caused widespread coastal highway and street flooding and several short-lived tornadoes, but no other deaths. Tropical Storm Cindy has made landfall in Louisiana with maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour .
She's only one vote in Congress . "Now we know what New Hampshire looks like", said Chip Lake, a GOP consultant based in Georgia. Meanwhile, Pelosi sent out a directive for supporters to hit social media with positive messages about her.
You push it to the limit, of course, but this is the completely wrong spot to overdo it. "At the moment, I don't plan to". The session was red-flagged with just under 20 minutes to go, when Sergio Perez crashed heavily at the narrow Turn 8.

Nancy Pelosi is beside the point
