Republican Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears responded to a social media video made by former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Democratic Virginia state Sen. Louise Lucas to target Democratic voters with a message about women's rights to abortion and "MAGA Republican extremists."
"From attacking our freedoms and trying to jail women and their doctors, MAGA Republican extremists are out of control, " Democratic Virginia state Sen. L. Louise Lucas said in a video with Pelosi.
"Democrats have momentum. Virginians will be voting to protect women's rights, fund public education, and address the kitchen table needs of working families," Pelosi also said in the video.
Lucas added in the video posted to Pelosi's social media, "Tell [Gov.] Glenn Youngkin [R-VA] and Donald Trump to stay the hell out of your doctor's office."
Sears pushed back with her own social media message directed at Pelosi and Lucas.
"Why don't you take care of your own backyard before you start talking about us, Nancy Pelosi?" Sears said in reaction on Monday.
Sears added, "You got enough problems of your own. Handle that first and maybe we'll listen to you."
In an interview on WMAL, Sears suggested where Pelosi's attention should be focused.
"Has anyone asked Nancy Pelosi when they are going to start cleaning up the filth and the literal feces that are lining the businesses?" Sears said of Pelosi's San Francisco. "Has anyone asked Nancy Pelosi if she is going to take care of the people who are leaving?"
Pelosi campaigned with several Virginia Democrats, including Lucas and Virginia Democratic Party Chairwoman Susan Swecker, over the weekend.
Republicans hold a slim majority in the state's House of Delegates and are aiming to flip the Democratic majority in the state Senate during the state election on Tuesday.
Both Democrats and Republicans have aggressively spent and campaigned in Virginia. Youngkin has been pushing the "Secure Your Vote" initiative to encourage voters to do early voting and absentee balloting.
At Youngkin's rally on Monday, many rally attendees held signs reading "Hold the House. Flip the Senate."
Pelosi is not the only high-profile Democrat campaigning in Virginia.
Neighboring Gov. Wes Moore (D-MD) has been campaigning in Virginia for Democratic candidates, including transgender Virginia Del. Danica Roem, ahead of Tuesday's election.
Barack Obama recorded a robocall for Virginians to "make our voices heard."
Cat fight. Kind of embarrassing considering the results Tuesday night.

Hardly. Ms. Sears has a point.
Solid as Sears............
Oh, wait a second.........
“From attacking our freedoms and trying to jail women and their doctors,
JUST LIKE YOU DID WITH J6 YOU DRUNKIN SOW
Sears is awful.
When I’m king use of tired political cliches like “kitchen table” will be a capital offense. Likewise proclaiming proposals “dead on arrival,” clipping “-gate” on the names of scandals,
“Doubling down,” etc
Republicans cannot ignore the abortion issue. They need to paint those people as extremists, which they are.
Men are pleased with easy unprotected sex and easy abortions.
She’s not awful. Just a day late and a dollar short.
If we won then yes. However, she looks silly.
The future of Winsome Sears is in doubt after Tuesday’s elections. One step forward 2 steps back. This nobody Hung Can gonna take down Kaine? Va. democrats can spend their money in purple states.
It’s all a shame. But if voters sat out, not much we can do about that. Democrats are not sitting out for sure.
