Perez, a former labor secretary, said there are 71 congressional districts "more competitive" than Georgia's 6th district, where Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel Tuesday by less than 4 points.
"NAPKIN MATH: Ossoff raised $23.6 million to make a symbolic run against President Trump, most of it from Marin County, California and Martha's Vineyard in MA".
The top three House Democrats are now Pelosi, who is 77; Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer, who is 78; and South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, who is 76.
Following Ossoff's loss, a number of Democratic legislators made public calls for Pelosi to step aside to make room for younger lawmakers eager to present a new vision for the future of the party. "He's just not one of us", her ads said, and this message was reinforced by tying him to House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi - and perhaps inadvertently by Ossoff's own promise to "grow metro Atlanta's economy into the Silicon Valley of the South".
But Pelosi continues to command great loyalty from many in the House, and she insisted her position was not in jeopardy. "It still moves voters". "Another Democratic leader would not start with that level of name recognition". In the end, the Republican - and in the eyes of many, Trump - won handily.

They believe that the president is being underestimated yet again, just as he was when polls predicted his defeat in the crucial states that determined the outcome of the presidential election.
"This was the kind of district that they were going to need to win if they are going to get back into the majority", said Republican pollster David Winston.
"Ossoff race better be a wake up call for Democrats - business as usual isn't working", tweeted Representative Seth Moulton of MA.
The result comes as relief for Republicans, who had grown concerned about whether their party, buffeted by the scandals that have plagued the Republican President, could hold the seat in Georgia's sixth district, which became the most expensive congressional race in USA history. "This is what they do". Instead, the party should be focusing on 2018, and the 23 Republican-held House seats in districts where Hillary Clinton bested Trump a year ago.
