Nancy Pelosi: I’m confident Democrats will retake the House

BOSTON (AP) — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi says she’s confident Democrats will retake the House in next month’s midterm elections.

Pelosi, who stands to become speaker if her party captures the chamber, ticked off a legislative to-do list including lowering health care costs, spearheading a national infrastructure plan and pushing for changes to campaign finance laws.

The California Democrat said she wasn’t worried about Democrats campaigning for the House in part by opposing her as speaker, telling candidates: “Do whatever you have to do, just win, baby.”

Pelosi made the comments Tuesday at the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School.

Pelosi also says she wants the public to know what instructions investigators may have received from President Donald Trump regarding the scope of the FBI probe into Brett Kavanaugh.
