One number puts the Democrat loss in Georgia in stunning perspective

Parmenio Sano | 24 Giugno, 2017, 05:04

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.

The congressional district was supposedly one, where Democrats could capitalize on "reluctant Trump voters".

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.

But Murphy also said that Democrats must do more to convince voters they have plans to boost the economy - promoting "economic fairness" rather than broader growth is missing the mark.

In Georgia's 6th District, the Democrat candidate Rodney Stooksbury spent nothing and won 124,917 votes in November of 2016.

Sean Richey is an associate professor of political science and specializes in voting and elections, political communication, and political behavior.

"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.
