White House paints Handel win as Trump triumph

White House paints Handel win as Trump triumph

On June 20, Handel defeated Democrat candidate Jon Ossoff in a race for Georgia's 6th Congressional District seat.

Of the four districts that were Republican in January, the number of them that are still Republican is four! But, to quote Taylor Swift, they're not out of the woods yet.

Still, Ossoff's loss may force Democrats to retool their strategy as they look ahead to next year's midterm elections, when all of the seats in House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate will be up for grabs. "That's a tough thing to ask a candidate running for Congress".

The hosts of "The View" on Wednesday had plenty to say about the Democrats' most recent election loss in Georgia - and Joy Behar even admitted the party's anti-Donald Trump platform doesn't appear to be working. They were at risk of losing it to a 30-year-old who had no prior political experience. With the victories, along with wins in the Kansas and Montana special elections, the political will to push on with healthcare and tax reforms may increase.

Rep. Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, expressed optimism that Democrats can still take control of Congress' lower chamber next year, declaring, "The House is in play".

US President Donald Trump knocked Democrats on Wednesday for obstructing his agenda, one day after a fellow Republican won a congressional race in Georgia that was widely seen as a referendum on his young, turbulent presidency. And yet, they came close.

KAREN BASS: In the districts where we are truly competitive, I don't think that message is going to hold very much. But Trump won the district by only 1.5 percentage points in 2016, and his national approval rating now stands below 40 percent. Democrats need to pick up 24 House seats to retake the majority.

Also on Tuesday, a Democratic candidate fell 3 percentage points short of defeating a Republican in the race to fill budget director Mick Mulvaney's House former seat in SC. "Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O!" If she hadn't won, the Congressional Leadership Fund - the biggest outside spender in the race - was planning to keep its office in the district open right through November 2018.

That might become especially clear this week, as Republican senators unveil a health care plan that's likely to cut critical Obamacare benefits and coverage for millions of people in red states and districts.

"Admire & respect Nancy Pelosi, but in "every" race, GOP runs against her", Cher said. Unless the Democrats start winning more than just moral victories against a deeply unpopular president, her days as party leader could be numbered.
