House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referenced a famous quote in California's sports landscape when asked about Democrats who no longer want her as the top-ranked member of the party.
"I'm OK. Just win, baby," Pelosi said Tuesday morning at a Politico event.
The California Democrat appeared to be referring to full-page ads the Oakland Raiders - whose founder and late owner Al Davis coined the famous phrase - football team has taken out to support the Golden State Warriors as they prepared for the NBA finals.
Some Democratic candidates have pledged not to support Pelosi for House minority leader — or speaker of the House, if Democrats take back control of the chamber in November.
"I think if they have to do that to win the election, I'm all for winning," the 78-year-old Pelosi said. "I think many of them are saying we need new leadership. I don't take offense at that."
Pelosi served as House speaker from 2007-2011 when Democrats controlled the House.
