Pelosi: Things were going great for us until these outside groups started spending money

Uh huh. You can fact-check her on this yourself: Go here and scroll alllllll the way down to see how long ago it was that the generic ballot started to tilt towards Republicans. Even lefty pollsters like PPP were showing a lead for the GOP as far back as August 2009. If you want to […]
