House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in an interview that aired this morning pushed back against the growing consensus that Democrats have a difficult path ahead to win back control of the House of Representatives.
“So we have the message, we have the messengers, we have the money, we have the mobilization,” Pelosi said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We have a very excellent chance to take back the House.”
Democrats need 25 seats to gain control of the House.
Anchor Candy Crowley asked Pelosi if she agreed with a recent Roll Call story that stated that Democratic House chances are “theoretically possible but unlikely.”
“No. I think that, first of all, I don’t know what the source of that is,” Pelosi said. “But I do know what the source of our confidence is, and that’s the quality of our candidates. They’re just great, the fact that they are strong in terms of their grassroots mobilization and their resource raising and the rest.”
