If anti-Trump sentiment is going to work in Democrats' favor, they should have seen a better result in Georgia. "They are not talking, frankly, what's on cable news at night".

South Carolina Democratic strategist Lachlan McIntosh said Democrats need to make major changes within their ranks if they want to take back control of the U.S. House in 2018.

Pelosi has led the Democratic caucus in the House since 2003, and in March said she would have retired had Hillary Clinton won the election.

"I think it's very concerning that that tactic still has some punch", Tim Ryan said of the challenges Ossoff faced, "It's part of the broader national brand that average people don't feel connected to the Democratic Party". Handel and the GOP painted Ossoff as a California liberal, like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, while Ossoff tried to run as more of a moderate Democrat.

Trump said in his latest tweets that he has "no idea" whether there are "tapes" of the two men's conversations.

Others replied that it would take more than new blood - it would take an entirely different mindset that rejects negative politics - something Pelosi is well-known for.

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.


"I stand before you, extraordinarily humbled and honoured at the tremendous privilege and responsibility you. have given me", she told a crowd that chanted Mr Trump's name.

Democrats gambled on peeling affluent, educated GOP voters in the suburban Atlanta district away from Karen Handel, the GOP candidate.

Asked if that meant Pelosi should go, Moulton - who backed Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan's challenge to Pelosi's leadership post a year ago - said: "I think that's a question for the caucus to decide".

"I feel very confident about the support that I have in my caucus", Pelosi said at a press conference in the Capitol after Republicans featured her in nearly every ad attacking Democrat Jon Ossoff in the Georgia congressional race which he lost Tuesday.

The president lauded what he called a 5-0 record in congressional races since his election.

Trump quickly congratulated Karen Handel on Tuesday night's win in the Georgia special election. Martin asked. Ossoff's response may reveal just why he lost the election - that and the fact that he couldn't even vote in the district he was running to represent because he wasn't a resident. "We will be removing federal restrictions that have prevented many different industries from creating apprenticeship programs".
