House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she is unbothered by Democrats campaigning in swing districts by pledging not to support her for speaker.

Pelosi said she would have retired after the 2016 cycle if Hillary Clinton had won the White House, but chose to stick around to be a voice for women at a table of male leaders.

While some Democrats and liberal groups have said lawmakers should move to impeach the president if they gain control, Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have urged members to focus on policy issues such as affordable health care.

"I think if they had to do that to win the election, I'm all for winning", she said at a Politico Playbook event in Washington.

McCarthy cited the GOP's sweeping overhaul of the USA tax system, as well as other facets of positive economic growth as reasons why he believes the party needs to defeat Democratic opponents in the November midterm elections.

When she thought Hillary Clinton was going to be elected president and Democrats would retake the Senate in 2016, Pelosi was prepared to leave.
