Surprise! No one likes Nancy Pelosi.
The most prominent and effective hit on the Democratic candidate was to tie him to the congresswoman from San Francisco.
Republican operatives say that 98 percent of voters in the 6th District already had an impression of Pelosi when they conducted their first internal poll, and she was 35 points underwater. When presented with the choice of whether they wanted a representative who would work with Paul Ryan or Pelosi, six in 10 picked the Speaker and three in 10 picked the minority leader.
I read this morning that Osoff received more than 3,000 contributions from Californians, and 808 from the district he'd hoped to lead.
