Pelosi: "There Are More Than 200 Democrats Who Will Be Reelected Easily"
Pelosi says there’s no doubt the democrats will keep the House.
Nancy Pelosi announced yesterday that there are over 200 House democrats who will be reelected easily and the democrats will keep control of the House.
The Hill reported:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has a message for Republicans this fall: Bring it on.
A buoyant Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday basked in the Democrats’ special-election triumph while bashing Republicans and expressing confidence that her party will retain control of the House.
In an interview with The Hill, the Speaker said it was very important to her that Democrats retain the late Rep. John Murtha’s (D-Pa.) seat, which they did Tuesday night.
Pelosi, who was very close with Murtha, said Republicans once again tried to nationalize an election by way of an “anti-Obama, anti-Pelosi” message.
“It didn’t work,” Pelosi said, calling the strategy Republicans have employed regularly in recent years “predictable.”
Asked about House Minority Leader John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) recent claim that there are 100 House seats in play, Pelosi responded, “Let him think that.”
She said there are “more than 200” House Democrats who will be reelected “easily,” but cautioned that she never underestimates her opponents.
