Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has moved to recapture a New Deal-era coalition. But will it last?
"You know what, I'm Speaker of the House. I have a great chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee, Chris Van Hollen, we have a solid plan - messaging and mobilizing at the grass-roots level - and management of our campaigns - and we have a two to one advantage, money-wise," Pelosi said on ABC.
She says she feels "very confident about where we are" when it comes to the election. Still, the California Democrat says her party isn't taking anything for granted.
Democrats face voter unrest over the economy and high unemployment. They also must deal with the fallout over ethics charges against Democratic Reps. Charlie Rangel of New York and Maxine Waters of California.
