At the end of the day, she will no longer be speaker, but that isn't stopping the National Republican Congressional Committee from going after Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
NRCC Chair Pete Sessions (R-Texas) will take direct aim at Pelosi, in comments scheduled for release later this afternoon.
The statement is a sign that Republicans will continue to use Pelosi as a political weapon against Democrats in 2012 -- just as they have in recent cycles.
"While Nancy Pelosi and her party apparently have yet to understand the message sent on Election Day, the American people have no regrets for soundly rejecting the job-killing policies that Democrats imposed the last four years," Sessions will say. "The more determined Nancy Pelosi is to fight efforts to create jobs and grow our economy, the more motivated voters will be to ensure that she never holds the Speaker's gavel again."
The NRCC was relentless in its attacks on Pelosi in 2010. In fact, of the 196 ads the independent expenditure arm of the committee created, 125 of them featured Pelosi.
In particular, the NRCC frequently highlighted members' votes for Pelosi when she was sworn in as Speaker.
