“You’ll see that I’m so liberal, which I am,” Pelosi admitted about Republican attacks against her.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitted that the recent string of Republican attacks that paint her as an out-of-touch liberal elitist are true, during an interview with KRON4.
KRON4’s Pam Moore asked Pelosi about how Democrats have lost some 1,000 elected offices since 2010, which has called some to question whether Pelosi should remain the leader of the Democratic Caucus.
“Is this a very personal fight for you inside the Party? Do you feel personal about it?” Moore asked Pelosi.
“No not at all,” Pelosi replied. “I feel very proud of the support I have for my members. I feel very accomplished about what we have done.”
Pelosi continued by telling Moore, “if you’re effective you will be a target, and the Republicans decided that I was effective, I would be a target.”
“So you will see around the country, cable cars in San Francisco and LGBTQ, and all of that. You’ll see that I’m so liberal, which I am,” Pelosi concluded. “That is part of the target that others in my own party have said, ‘well I want to be leader, so I’m going to join in on that.'”
The attacks Pelosi is referring to are ads that the Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) and other Republican groups ran during Georgia’s 6th Congressional District special election.
In Georgia’s 6th Congressional District special election, Republican groups were successfully able to tie the Democratic candidate to Pelosi, resulting in the Republican candidate Karen Handel winning the special election, which was the most expensive in U.S. history.
