House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who has raised a staggering $100 million for Democrats for the upcoming midterms, has neither the time nor the inclination for questions about her own fate in the caucus, according to a Tuesday NPR report.

“It is the least important question you could ask, with all due respect to your list of questions there,” she said.

Pelosi shifted the conversation to her top priority: winning back the House.

“Will it be a tsunami or will it be a wave?” she said. “Either case it’s tiny little drops of water, and all of them close races.”

“I have every confidence that we’ll win,” she continued. “Not because I’m taking anything for granted, but because we’re not yielding one grain of sand. This is urgent.”
