House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that congressional Democrats don’t want a “new direction” in spite of their election loss.

During an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Pelosi was asked what she tells members of her party “who want a new direction” and what they plan to do “differently” going forward.

“I don’t think people want a new direction,” she replied. “Our values unify us, and our values are about supporting America’s working families. That is one that everyone is in agreement on.”

Pelosi claimed that Democrats lost not due to their message but due to a failure to articulate that message to the American people.

“What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country and clearly the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi recently withstood a leadership challenge from Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan (D) and was re-elected by her Democratic colleagues to serve as House minority leader.
