House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she sees no need to be worried by Republican victories in two governors races last night, because for her the news was all good.

"From my perspective, we won last night," said Pelosi (D-Calif.), referring to the New York special election for the House seat previously held by Republican Rep. John McHugh. "We had one race were engaged in."

Democrat Bill Owens won the seat in the wake of what some called a "civil war" within the Republican Party. Third-party conservative candidate Doug Hoffman, backed by "Tea Party" conservative activists and national conservatives like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, forced Republican Dede Scozzafava out of the race.

Pelosi said she saw a win for her health care plan, noting that Owens mentioned the health care legislation in his victory speech.

"In his remarks last night he said it was a victory for health care reform and other initiatives," Pelosi said.
