A few days after California Gov. Gavin Newsom blasted the national Democratic Party for lacking a “counteroffensive” to GOP-led culture war attacks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi returned fire on her fellow California Democrat—though she probably shouldn’t have, given the full context of the governor’s remarks.
While appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday, Pelosi was told by host Margaret Brennan that “Newsom said Democrats have failed to target Republicans” on the issue of abortion. The House Speaker was then shown a brief clip of Newsom at a press conference stating, “Where is the Democratic Party? Where’s the party? Why are we calling this out? This is a concerted, coordinated effort. And yes, they’re winning.” .We need to stand up.Where’s the counteroffensive?”
