Joe Crowly, a Democrat who was thought by many to be a possible successor to Nancy Pelosi in Dem party leadership, lost a primary race to Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez yesterday. After that news, Peter Daou was calling for new Democrat leadership. However, Nancy Pelosi is saying all it well:
PELOSI ON LAST NIGHT: "The fact that in a very progressive district in New York, it went more progressive than-well, Joe Crowley is a progressive — but more to the left than Joe Crowley is about that district. It is not to be viewed as something that stands for everything else.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says while the New York City district of a defeated Democratic congressman may have shifted to the left, that doesn't necessarily mean it's happening everywhere. https://t.co/wz931p1A19

Pelosi seems a bit troubled, even as she’s trying to basically assure the longtime leadership of her party that “all is well”:

Pelosi: “Everything is fine.”
Narrator: “Everything was not fine.”
