Speaking to reporters at DNC headquarter moments ago, Chairman Tim Kaine told reporters that Democrats will lose the House of Representatives and the majority of governors mansions across the country.
In the end, he said, there will be “a Democrat in White House, a majority of Republican governors, a Democratic Senate, and a Republican house.”
When asked if Speaker Nancy Pelosi should remain in Democratic leadership when her party becomes the minority, Kaine spoke her praises.
“If she wants to she definitely should. She has done a very good job of accomplishing things that i think are going to be very well regarded in history in terms of Speakers who been able to get things done.”
