House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) predicted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will be one of Democrats' "biggest impediments" in recapturing the majority in the lower chamber during midterm elections.
Republicans on the Hill this week have said Conor Lamb won in the Pennsylvania special election because he emphasized that he wouldn't vote for Pelosi in party leadership elections and also highlighted his personal positions that aligned closely with the GOP.
"You can look the special election of Pennsylvania and see a lot of things. One of the things we saw is both candidates run against Nancy Pelosi and run on conservative values like protecting the Second Amendment in being pro-life," Scalise told Bloomberg TV in an interview Thursday. "...So let's talk about how we actually hold the majority. And that is like continuing to focus on the things that we've done to get our economy back on track."
