Karl Rove: House Democrats’ left wing ‘is about 100 yards to the left’ of Pelosi

The House Republican caucus is in a far stronger position than the Democrats after this year’s elections despite being in the minority, former deputy White House chief of staff Karl Rove told “Hannity” Wednesday.

Rove pointed out that the GOP was projected to lose as many as 20 seats in the House as part of a “blue wave” that never materialized. Instead, Republicans have flipped at least five seats and appear likely to flip more.

Meanwhile, the former George W. Bush adviser claimed, a divide is brewing between moderate and Establishment Democrats and the progressive wing of the party.

Examplies of the latter group, Rove said, include Rockland County, N.Y. attorney Mondaire Jones, who will fill the seat long held by retiring House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y.
