Democratic Losses in Special Elections

The Latest Trump questions Obama's handling of Russia intel Democratic Losses in Special Elections

In an interview, Ryan explained that Republicans are using Pelosi in ads to attack Democratic candidates in district races, like they did against Jon Ossoff in Georgia. Ossoff's loss is the latest in a string of Democratic losses in all three other special congressional elections that have taken place this year.

Democratic Party divisions were on glaring display Wednesday as a special election loss in a wildly expensive Georgia House race left bitter lawmakers turning their anger on their own leaders. The analysis turned up no employees or professors at those same schools donating to Ossoff's opponent, Republican Karen Handel.

"The Georgia results ought to be a warning shot for Democrats, not a battle cry".

President Donald Trump riffed on Democrats at his campaign-style rally in Iowa on Wednesday, saying the party has been "unbelievably nasty" while at the same time admitting he hasn't made bipartisanship easy.

Next year elections for these congressional seats will be held again, and during that time we will continue to build support for Democratic candidates there and elsewhere.

Democrats on Tuesday also lost a special congressional election in SC that no one had given them any real chance of winning.


Pelosi also responded to President Donald Trump's tweet that ousting her "would be very bad for the Republican Party". As such, they took a flyer on the unproven Trump, but, Democrats hoped, may have come to regret their vote by now.

"I don't think when people vote, they vote based on leadership in Washington", said Rep. Eliot Engel, the ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

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.

Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, who was unsuccessful a year ago in trying to unseat Pelosi. In Kansas in April, in Montana last month and in Georgia and SC on Tuesday, Democratic candidates outperformed their party's past showings, but still fell short where it counts: Republicans won.

Ossoff initially campaigned on a promise to "make Trump furious" but more recently backed off that approach. Many Democrats hope to harness that energy during the 2018 mid-terms, when the entire House will be up for re-election.

"I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi believes that she is the one that can lead this party". She said she has told Democrats to stop focusing on Russia's meddling in the 2016 election. And in the Senate, Republicans have been working on a bill to partner the House's replacement plan largely in secret-without input from a large swath of members of both parties.
