House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says she's confident she has the support in her caucus despite finger-pointing and frustration after Democrats lost a Georgia special election.

Democrats invested millions in the costliest House race, but Republican Karen Handel beat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday. That drew criticism of Pelosi from fellow Democrats.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pelosi said Democrats are proud of the race they ran and she dispelled a question about stepping down.

Said the 77-year-old California lawmaker: "I feel very confident of the support that I have in my caucus."

Pelosi also responded to President Donald Trump's tweet that ousting her "would be very bad for the Republican Party."

Pelosi said: "Usually they go after the most effective leaders because they want to diminish the opportunity that we have."
