Trump lashes out at Democrats after Georgia win

While all of America had its eyes set on the special election in Georgia Tuesday, a race for a U.S. House seat in SC proved to be a surprisingly close result for the Democratic Party.

The race for Georgia's 6th district was the most expensive House race in United States history.

Co-host Mika Brzezinski agreed with Scarborough, saying the mistake that Democrats make is presuming that just because Trump has low approval ratings, voters will shy away from Republican candidates. The $25 million raised was not enough to reverse the luck of the Democrats, who suffered defeat in districts within Kansas, Montana and SC. Which is relatively close considering the district has been led by a Republican for decades, but not as close as South Carolina's.

Nevertheless, Karen Handel managed to garner 53 percent of the vote to beat her opponent, the Democrat Jon Ossoff, showing that the polls, much like in the presidential election, were off, and that money and enthusiasm did not translate to votes for the Democrats. "We all have a lot of anger towards what Donald Trump is doing, but we've had four special elections, and Donald Trump, four, Democrats, zero", Ryan said.

When the astonishingly awful health plan is finally made public and people watch their parents, children, siblings and friends be denied health care, and when they experience the full horror of President Trump's foreign policy, Democrats will win in district after district, if they do the groundwork that is always necessary to win elections.

BENNETT: Another reason why Democrats shouldn't feel all that demoralized is Karen Handel's slim margin of victory, says House Democratic Caucus Vice Chair Linda Sanchez. Mick Mulvaney left the seat open when he joined the Trump administration as Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Indeed, Trump was in campaign-mode Wednesday night in Iowa. That margin helped Trump take the state by almost 9 points after Barack Obama won it for Democrats the previous two elections.

"Big day tomorrow in Georgia and SC", he wrote.

Democratic candidates also lost earlier races in Republican-held districts in Kansas and Montana.

Democrats have now failed to pick up any House seats in this year's special elections. Democrats retained a heavily Democratic seat in a June 6 California race between two Democrats.

Democratic operative Ron Klain asserted that his party had put too much expectation on winning the special elections, noting that they were all held in historically conservative areas.

BENNETT: Democrats see 70 House seats that could be easier to flip than that Georgia district.
