WHAT? Nancy Pelosi Says Failed North Carolina Democrat Lost The Election But ‘Won The Campaign’ (VIDEO)

Democrat House candidate Dan McCready lost his bid for office last week to Republican Dan Bishop.

But all is not lost, according to Nancy Pelosi.

The House Speaker claims that although McCready lost the election, he won the campaign.

Whatever that means.

ICYMI: Pelosi Commended McCready For ‘Winning the Campaign’… But Not the Election

Dan McCready lost to his Republican challenger Dan Bishop Wednesday night in North Carolina’s 9th district election. Bishop won by two percent of the vote, despite McCready having a two-year head start and millions of dollars in donations.

So, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi congratulated…the latter.

“I’m very proud of Dan McCready,” she said glowingly. “He’s a patriot, he’s an independent voice for the district he would have represented – it’s too bad he’s not coming here. But he did a great job.”

The speaker added that McCready polled better than past presidential candidates have in the district.

“So he won the campaign,” she reasoned. “He didn’t win the election, but he won the campaign.”

Watch the video below:

That’s a very unique way of looking at things.

On a related note, you’ll be thrilled to hear Pelosi is planning on running for speaker again.

Pelosi running again, 80 on Election Day, soon to become oldest speaker ever

It’s official, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning to run for another term.

Coy on her plans to date, Washington’s top Democrat told C-SPAN’s Steve Scully that she will file for a 17th term.

“Oh, yeah, well I’m not making any political plans right now, but we’ll just take it one day at a time,” the Democrat initially said.

Then, she added, “I intend to file, we have to file by December of this year, we have to file, so I’ll be filing, yes.”

Pelosi first won in a 1987 special election and has twice been elected speaker.

She’s turning 80 in March.

Isn’t it time for her to retire?
