Nancy Pelosi may lose her train of thought and forget key words more often these days. But Republicans are hoping the 78-year-old House Democrat leader can hang in there at least through this fall’s election. And if fortune smiles on the GOP, future ones too.
This is the fifth straight set of House elections that Republicans have used her as the ultimate liberal bete noire to drive party faithful to the November polls for GOP House candidates. It works.
Pelosi became Speaker in 2006 when Democrats seized control of both chambers in an anti-Bush cycle. But in the first midterm elections of Barack Obama’s terms, Democrats suffered an historic loss of 63 House seats. Like Obama an assiduous fundraiser, Pelosi vowed to take back the House in 2012. But didn’t. Again in 2014. But didn’t. And again in 2016.
