As TGP previously reported, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is facing doubts about her leadership of the House Democrats following the stinging defeat of Jon Ossoff in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District special election on Tuesday by Republican Karen Handel.
Tim Ryan (D-OH) appeared on CNN Wednesday evening to discuss the current state of the Democrat party after Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s 6th district. He brought up the ‘toxic brand’ of the Democrat party, Nancy Pelosi specifically.
Tim Ryan: “I don’t think people in the beltway are realizing just how toxic the Democratic party brand is in so many of the countries.”
Don Lemon brought up the Democrats going after Nancy Pelosi and asked if she sums up the Democrat brand. Tim Ryan responded with, “She’s (Pelosi) been getting pounded now for 10 years with negative ads from the Republicans…clearly these ads, using her, linking her to our candidates is still working. I wish it wasn’t true.”
Don Lemon: “Do you think Nancy Pelosi is more toxic thank Donald Trump?”
Tim Ryan: “You know what? The honest answer is, in some areas of the country, yes she is.”
Dem Rep. Tim Ryan slams Nancy Pelosi: She is more toxic than Trump!
