The Democrat Caucus held a call Thursday in which members of the party were reportedly scrambling after losing key seats in the U.S. House of Representatives in Tuesday’s Election.

Erica Werner of The Washington Post said that during the call Virginia Rep. Abigail Spanberger yelled, “We lost races we shouldn’t have lost. Defund police almost cost me my race bc of an attack ad. Don’t say socialism ever again. Need to get back to basics. If we run this race again we will get f****** torn apart again in 20222.”

Rep. Spanberger’s office didn’t return this reporter’s call or respond to an email request for comment.

In her Twitter thread describing the call, Werner added that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, however, disagreed with Rep. Spanberger’s assessment, reportedly saying “We have a mandate!”

According to Werner, Florida Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell was crying on the call over people mispronouncing her name. And, later Rep. Hakeem Jeffries reportedly urged members “to stop leaking and that reporters aren’t your friends!”

According to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, Democrats failed to flip House seats and appear to have lost seats that the party flipped in 2018.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
