NRCC Keeps Bringing Up Nancy Pelosi, the Typhoid Mary of Blue Dog Democrats


It appears that the difference between a good year for the NRCC and a great year is how many House Democrats become defined by their relationship and loyalty to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Thus, with President Obama, Harry Reid and Pelosi all unpopular in these conservative districts, many incumbent Democrats are loudly insisting they’re independents who rarely if ever vote in lockstep with their party’s leaders. The NRCC counter-argument is to go to the voting record.

They’re doing it in North Carolina…

They’re doing it in Nevada:

They’re doing it in North Dakota…

They’re doing it in Texas…

They’re doing it in Missouri…

In addition to these five races, they’re running in 25 more. Full analysis to come.
