Republicans are trying to tie local Democrats to Nancy Pelosi...and it's backfiring. Story inside.

This story is about the Democrats recent win in Florida's special election tonight.

"Much of the race focused on other hot-button national issues, such as immigration. Buchanan tried to paint Good as a friend of sanctuary cities and as a “liberal lawyer” in the mold of U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

That the race became so nationalized is a sign that the underlying motivation for many voters right now is Trump, either trying to handicap his presidency or support it.

Good tied Buchanan to Trump in her ads early on, betting that the president’s popularity had waned in the district and more people would be motivated to vote against him than for him."



This isn't the first time Republicans have tried to do this, and it's continuing to not work in their favor. It appears trying to make Pelosi the new boogyman isn't proving as effective as they did with Obama and Hillary.

2. That's probably part of it

Even the most redneck Republicans knew who Obama and Hillary were. But unless you have a decent knowledge of politics, you're not going to know who Pelosi is.

6. They're doing the same thing for the special election in PA-18.

Practically every ad is bashing Nancy Pelosi. Why do Republicans always need a woman to hate?

Pitiful.
