  • House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi guaranteed that
    Democrats will retake majority control in the House after next
    week’s midterm elections.
  • Democrats have not controlled the House of
    Representatives since 2010, when Pelosi was then speaker of the
    House.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi guaranteed that Democrats will
retake majority in the House in the midterm elections this coming
Tuesday.

During an appearance on
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Pelosi became very bullish
about Democrats’ ability to take back a majority they have not
seen since losing their grip on the House in 2010, just two years
into the Barack Obama administration.

“Let me say this. Up until today, I would’ve said, ‘If the
election were held today, we would win,’ she said. “What now I’m
saying is, ‘We will win.'”

Colbert jokingly asked Pelosi if she wanted “to say that on
Hillary’s fireworks barge that she canceled?”

“And how long are the curtains that you’re measuring right
now?” he added.

“No, we’re not measuring,” Pelosi quipped back. “We’re just
walking precincts and if everyone votes, we’ll have even a bigger
victory. But Democrats will carry the House. If we have a bigger
victory, the Senate, governorships, it’s going to be a great
night for America.”

Pelosi’s optimism about Democrats retaking control of the
chamber is nothing new, as the longtime Democratic leader has
expressed confidence about their chances for months.

The California Democrat has also taken an all-of-the-above
approach to making sure Democrats win in diverse districts.
Despite a record number of new candidates saying they would not
back her as the next speaker of the House if Democrats regain
control, Pelosi has dismissed attacks from Republicans.

“So let’s not read too much into this,”
she said in March
. “This is part of the bankruptcy of the
Republican Party. They’re devoid of ideas about how they can meet
the needs of the American people, so it’s ad hominems.”
