JITTERS: Roll Call: Pelosi Seeks to Soothe Caucus in Post-Election Conference Call.

In a post-mortem conference call with colleagues on Thursday afternoon, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi repeated talking points from earlier this week to explain the grim outcome of the midterm elections.

She also, if indirectly, touted her ability to continue leading the caucus at a time when many members are privately discussing when there will be a change in senior leadership ranks.

“I know where the money is,” the California Democrat said, according to sources on the call. “I know where to get it.”

Dems outspent the GOP this time around, to little effect. And I thought money in politics was bad?

Plus: White House Dismisses David Krone’s Criticism.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest dismissed acid criticism of the White House from Reid’s hard-charging chief of staff, David Krone, about the administration’s handling of a number of issues, including fundraising, in The Washington Post.

“I don’t think they actually reflect the true nature of the relationship that exists between President Obama and Senator Reid, that Senator Obama when he served in the United States Senate, and Senator Reid struck up a genuine friendship when the two men served together in the United States Senate,” Earnest said.

Earnest noted the two worked together to pass the president’s agenda early on in his administration.

Yeah, how did that work out?
