Yesterday, congressional Democrats met in a closed meeting to discuss a possible ouster of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whose leadership has been blamed for a string of defeats in the house – most recently, the catastrophically expensive loss for Jon Ossoff in the Georgia 6th.

While Pelosi is defiant, gambling that there isn’t enough support for Democrats upset with her leadership to actually oust her, the catastrophic losses for the Democratic party in the last several have left some representatives determined to make a change before the 2018 midterms.
