Pelosi Claims Democrats Have ‘Won Every Fight’ Against Republicans in 2017

The Democratic leader seems to have forgotten the four special elections Democrats lost in 2017.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told KRON 4 in an exclusive interview that Democrats have won every fight against Republicans, seemingly forgetting Democrats lost every special election that took place in 2017.

KRON4’s Pam Moore asked Pelosi why the Democratic Party hasn’t been able to capitalize on what she described as the disarray that exists within the Republican Party at the moment.

“What do you mean not capitalized?” Pelosi asked. “We’ve won every fight. The president’s numbers are in the high thirties.”

Pelosi continued by telling Moore that Democrats are getting ready for the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.

“We expect to take back the Congress,” Pelosi told Moore. “So we’re, in our view, in a good place. We have the election in 2018.”

Putting aside Democrats’ special election losses in 2017, the Democratic National Committee has been vastly outraised by its Republican counterpart so far this year.
