Pelosi: House Democrats Lost Some Battles But "Won The War"


Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Democrats lost some battles, but "won the war" in the battle for the House in this week's elections. 

She held a post-election briefing and said, "We held the House." Many House Democrats are angry about losing seats in this week's election. Dems had been expected to add seats to their majority. A number of House races are unresolved. Pelosi will seek another term as Speaker. She said she respects the diversity and differing viewpoints in the House Democratic Caucus, calling it a "wonderful dynamism."

Pelosi said she would not want to lead a "rubber stamp, lock-step caucus." She accused Republicans of following that path. Pelosi called it a happy time, noting the strong performance of former VP Joe Biden in the presidential race. She expects Biden to be projected as President-elect very soon. Democrats are also falling short in their efforts to flip control of the Senate.
