Jolly mocks Nancy Pelosi’s ‘spin control’ after winning election [VIDEO]

Florida Republican congressman-elect David Jolly mocked Nancy Pelosi for ‘engaging in spin control,’ after she claimed his election Tuesday night does not spell trouble for Democrats in November.

Jolly won the vote by nearly 2 percentage points in an election viewed as a measure of the nation’s feelings on Obamacare and the Democratic politicians responsible for it (RELATED: Jolly wins election that tested Obamacare’s appeal). The congressman-elect said his victory showed that Americans are concerned with the growth of government.

“You did mention the president’s healthcare plan,” Jolly told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly. “We know that represents a view of government that is of great concern to people across this country. And it’s true right here in this community as well.”

“The president’s healthcare plan has hurt the people in this county,” he added, “and a number of people came out to the polls today to express that concern to the president and to Congress.”

Jolly also mocked House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, after Kelly read a statement from the congresswoman dismissing his victory.

“Well, I think my new colleague Nancy Pelosi might be engaging in some spin control this evening,” he said, to laughs and cheers from supporters.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
