House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) dodged reporters’ questions regarding whether Democrats running for Congress in 2018 should run against her leadership on Thursday.

Democrat Conor Lamb, who won Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district special election on Tuesday, was successful in part because of a direct-to-camera ad in which he said he would not support Pelosi as leader of the House Democratic caucus.

A reporter asked Pelosi whether other Democrats should do the same thing.

“I don’t think that he ran against me the entire time. I think he ran on his positive agenda,” Pelosi responded. “It was a very issues-oriented campaign.”

“I just wanted him to win,” Pelosi said. “I don’t think that that had that much impact on the race. He won. If we hadn’t won, he might have a question, but we won. We won the race. The ‘D’ next to his name was very significant in those blue parts.”

Another reporter asked Pelosi what her message Lamb’s win sent to incumbent Democrats and their challengers.

“Let’s not read too much into this,” she responded. “I have a strong following in the country, and I don’t think that the Koch brothers should decide who the leader of the Democratic Party is in the House.”
