Nancy Pelosi, speaker, House, GOPThe GOP was able to use Pelosi as a symbol of left-wing policy in its smashing election victories last year. So this year, it’s more of the same.

Pelosi is making a useful target for the National Republican Congressional Committee as it seeks to aid Republican Candidate Jane Corwin in the upcoming special election for a House seat in western New York.
