Democratic nominee Jon Ossoff had to do three things to win: mobilize and turn out Clinton voters; convince some Trump-voting Republicans either to back him or, more plausibly, stay home out of distaste for GOP nominee Karen Handel; and win about 60 percent of voters who had gone for Johnson or McMullin past year. With Jaffe addressing issues like single-payer healthcare and President Trump tweeting that he hopes the Democrats keep her, Pelosi's next primary competition could end up being her most challenging election yet.
Ossoff ran on a decidedly moderate platform with millions of dollars to back him up. Which was fine by the Democrats who thought they were going to pounce and pick one off.
In December, Pelosi stated that she doesn't think Democratic voters actually want a new direction, but now even Democratic lawmakers are starting to disagree with her.

Pelosi's potential successors have included former Rep. Rahm Emanuel - but he left the House to become Obama's chief of staff and later to run for mayor of Chicago. It was the last straw for some Democrats.
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.
Pelosi, for her part, addressed the controversy head on Thursday during a press conference in the Capitol, where she defended her leadership track record and practically taunted the critics calling for her removal. Georgia was one of the most reliable Democratic states barely more than a decade or so ago, and is now ruby red with pockets of Democratic strength.
"Obviously people are very concerned about where we are and they want to have a conversation about where we need to be", Rep. Tim Ryan of OH told reporters about why the group got together. Ryan, who challenged Pelosi last fall, said he has no interest in doing so again.
