Longtime House leader Nancy Pelosi pushed back Thursday after a handful of Democratic party members called for her to step aside from her position following the party's loss in a Georgia special election, NBC News reported.

Republican Karen Handel, who defeated Jon Ossoff, ran an ad in Spanish attacking Pelosi, while an outside group aired another featuring San Franciscans thanking Ossoff for his campaign.
