House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday tried to solidify her support among House Democrats by sending out tweets defending her record to her supporters and retweeting them, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman.

Haberman tweeted that "Pelosi aides are sending allies suggested supportive tweets on social media."

She went on to tweet that this action is "an unusual thing to do if you are indeed unconcerned about a challenge."

Several of Pelosi's former aides sent out favorable tweets of her on Thursday afternoon with the hashtag #StandWithNancy.

Pelosi's campaign account, @TeamPelosi, also retweeted multiple Democratic House members who were stating positive messages about her.

Pelosi has come under increased scrutiny this week as several Democrats question Pelosi's leadership and whether she will be able to help Democrats win back the House in 2018. These questions surfaced after Democrats lost Georgia's special House election on Tuesday.

Pelosi defended her record during Thursday's weekly press conference and said that she was a "master legislator" and a "strategic, politically astute leader."
