One number puts the Democrat loss in Georgia in stunning perspective

In a particularly nefarious ad, a PAC supporting Handel claimed that Ossoff would produce more of the same as Pelosi, before implying that both supported the violence carried out at last week's Congressional baseball practice.
Handel devoted much of her speech to thanking national and state Republicans for backing her campaign before making a direct appeal to Ossoff's supporters.
It is the sixth-most educated district in the country and chock full of moderate, suburban Republicans.
Instead, he said Democrats need to focus on developing a message that wins over voters in Republican-leaning districts. Because in these United States of America, no one - no one - should ever feel their life threatened over their political beliefs and positions. Well, we'll disagree on whether it's fair or justified (believe me, it is), but at least some people within the party are starting to wake up. Because Mr Trump poached four Republicans from the House of Representatives to fill senior posts in his administration, their successors must be decided by special election.
Moulton criticized Democrats' handling of that race as well as the SC 5th District contest, where Democrat Archie Parnell lost to Republican Ralph Norman by an even narrower margin. "Is that what you're saying?"
"Whether she's a leader or not is up to the caucus to decide", Moulton said. Democrats hoping to flip congressional districts held by Republicans will have to articulate a clear value proposition for voters in those districts.

"This was a pretty good fight. exciting to be a part of", Porter said of the Ossoff race. The Democratic Party needs to decide on a formula to win elections and balance the interests of competing factions within its party - that will be a hard calculus. It could be that he should have leaned in more to the anti-Trump image. Ossoff is a nice guy, but he does not live in the district and is perceived as an outsider.
Although the race was widely seen as a referendum on the new President, many observers think Republicans did a better job tying Ossoff to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. She also welcomed a parade of national GOP figures to Atlanta to help her raise money, with Ryan and Vice President Mike Pence holding fundraisers following Trump's April visit. Ossoff had raised roughly $23 million and spent about $22 million as of the most recently available campaign finance reports.
And so the score stands, GOP 4, Dems 0. It would have been trumpeted as vindication of "a decidedly un-Sanders-like vision of the future" and cited as proof that Democrats who "want to win" should follow his model and explicitly rule out raising taxes on the wealthy and firmly oppose "any move" towards single-payer health care.
Rand Paul (R-KY), Ron Johnson (R-WI), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) say they "are not ready" to vote for the bill. That means funding will increase more slowly than cost of care, resulting in deep cuts to the program over time.
Other Senate "moderates" seem to be angling for a slower phase-out of the expansion and a slightly more liberal cap. Avik Roy is a physician and founder of the conservative Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity.
The non-partisan Congressional budget office is expected to send Congress its score showing how much the plan will cost on Monday. Also many insurers have chose to opt out of participating in state Affordable Care Act exchanges due to cost concerns.

Ossoff may have been forced into a run off with Handle after a flat African-American turnout in the special primary in April. The CLF brought in its data director, Ryan Terrill, and field director Patrick Lee, the former data director for Sen.
But those mandates also made policies more costly, prompting complaints from those who don't want such a rich benefits package. To appease moderates, the bill could further soften the end of Medicaid expansion and reduce overall cuts to the program.
The measure largely uses people's incomes as the yardstick for helping those without workplace coverage to buy private insurance. Shortly after the 142-page bill was distributed, more than a half-dozen GOP lawmakers signaled concerns or initial opposition.
It's about all they can do. "And I say that ladies and gentlemen in regards to both sides of the political aisle". But he said there is no doubt that "this is one occasion when we ought to say he deserves to take a victory lap".
