Pelosi tries to reassure Dems after Georgia loss

23 June, 2017, 00:41 | Author: Essie Rivera

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 the House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate will be up for grabs.

RYAN: We all have a lot of anger towards what Donald Trump is doing, but we've had four special elections, and Donald Trump, 4, Democrats, 0.

"This is not the outcome we were looking for, but this is the beginning of something bigger than us", said Ossoff to his supporters following defeat.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) on the "bad brand" that the Democrats give off, pointing to Jon Ossoff's loss in Georgia where Republicans were successful in pinning the Dem candidate to Nancy Pelosi.

With 100% of the votes counted, Handel outnumbered Democratic presidential candidate Jon Ossof by five points in the most expensive electoral race in the history of the United States.

While attending the NRA's Annual Meeting in Atlanta, President Donald Trump blended praise for Handel into his speech to the organization, saying, "She's totally for the NRA and she's totally for the Second Amendment".

And Republican Ralph Norman defeated Democrat Archie Parnell on Tuesday in SC for the House seat vacated by White House budget director Mick Mulvaney.

Two Canadians among those sought by US authorities over attack on protesters
Police displayed photos at the news conference of those sought , urging the public to help find some still unidentified. Video footage showed security guards and some Erdogan supporters attacking protesters, leaving nine people hurt.

Ossoff's campaign raised $23.6 million alone from individual donors, compared to $5.6 million for Handel, The New York Times reports.

"But these results fit a pattern that should still worry GOP incumbents everywhere, regardless of Trump's national approval rating and the outcome of the healthcare debate in Congress", he said. "Shifts of that magnitude next year would topple many House Republicans holding more marginal seats than these four".

"I know it's easy to feel disappointed and defeated", Lujan said in a video message to Democrats.

For Republicans, Handel's win had to offer some reassurance in Washington. "All of the television networks, other than Fox who has treated us fairly", Trump said.

According to Atlantic monthly, "Compared with November's results, the GOP margins of victory declined from almost 16 points to 6 in Montana, 23 points to less than 4 in Georgia, 21 points to 3 in SC, and 31 to about 7 in Kansas.

"It also suggests that attacks tying more centrist Democrats to the national party, particularly House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, can still prove effective".

But Handel's win only buys some breathing room, as Russian Federation investigations, White House intrigue and policy disagreements on Capitol Hill continue to stall the GOP agenda in Washington.
