Pelosi outlines a path to victory for House Democrats in 2020 ó and guarantees it

By Paul Kane
April 6 at 6:00 AM

Barely three months into her second turn in charge, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already mapped out a plan to overwhelm Republicans in the 2020 elections.

ďIím going to have our races won by this November,Ē the California Democrat said.

Yes, the House speaker predicted that she will have locked down the majority a full year ahead of schedule, leaving the political battlefield to what she considers an intense presidential race all the way up to November 2020.

Itís a remarkably bold guarantee for Pelosi, who will celebrate this new majorityís 100-day mark at a Democratic retreat next week outside Leesburg. Her caucus has had its share of growing pains in the first quarter of the year, with younger, more-liberal Democrats trying to push Pelosiís leadership team as far to the left as possible.

A bitter divide remains over how to handle a new generationís break from the partyís long-standing support of Israel. And a growing Democratic presidential primary field is advancing policies that are out of step with a couple dozen freshman Democrats who won swing seats in districts that favored President Trump in the 2016 election.
