Nancy Pelosi – the most senior and powerful woman ever to hold an elected office in American history ̵

1; At this moment, the perfect antidote to Trump. From the first day he entered the White House, women were at the head of the resistance movement against his presidency.

The GOP did not try for the first time to make the 2018 elections a referendum on the potential leadership of Pelosi. For more than a decade, the Republicans have started round after round of shameless attacks against them. For example, during the 2010 election, the GOP invested $ 65 million in ads that demonized it. And in early 2018, one of three ads by the party targeted them in one way or another.

However, it was all unsuccessful: the Democratic Party voters supported the most marginal democratic candidates ever seen in the polls in the midterm elections, and in November a record number of women brought to Congress – almost 90 percent of them are members of the Democratic Party.
