Pelosi said in an interview with The Washington Post published Sunday that she will secure the majority by this November, a full year before the elections.

"I’m going to have our races won by this November," she said.


By Thanksgiving, possible GOP challengers will "think twice" about running against Democrats, she said. She also warned Republicans in swing seats that "some of you are vulnerable."

"It’s going to cost you millions of dollars, to win or lose. And if you win — say you win — you’re in the minority," Pelosi added. 

Her remarks come after Democrats regained control of the House in the 2018 midterms with a net gain of 40 seats.
