Rep. Pete King: Georgia Win Should Tell Trump 'Don't Bother Tweeting'

"If you're using Donald Trump as your basis for your campaign, I don't know if it's working", she said.

But Mr. Trump's low approval ratings weren't enough to sink Handel, especially given that neither candidate dwelled on Mr. Trump during the campaign.

But after Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday, that narrative quickly changed.

Tuesday night's outcome in a special House race in Georgia was a triumph for the GOP, and the most recent and devastating illustration of the Democrats' problems - from a weak bench and recruiting problems to divisions about what the party stands for today. "All the Fake News, all the money spent (equals) 0".

King on Wednesday called Democrats' Tuesday losses in Georgia and SC, as well as other recent special elections, "devastating defeats". "We can't just run against Trump". Handel didn't talk much about Trump on the trail but embraced him as the party's leader and welcomed him to the district if he so chose to go. She said she would have voted for the House Republican health care bill, though she sometimes misrepresented its provisions in debates with Ossoff. Republicans have held that seat since Newt Gingrich won it in 1978, although Mr. Trump barely won the district by 1.5 percent in 2016. Mr Sanders took an very bad long time to endorse him.


Trump weighed in on Twitter late Monday and early Tuesday, attacking Ossoff for living just outside the district, claiming Ossoff will raise taxes and calling Handel a hard worker "who will never give up!"

Finally, some good news for Donald Trump: battling dismal approval ratings, the USA president on Wednesday relished a Republican victory in a closely-watched congressional election in Georgia, calling it a vote of confidence in his administration. Democrats will need to pick up 24 House seats to take back the majority. It worked; running on a platform of MOAR LIBERAL TEARS, Handel won with 51.9 percent of the vote.

As for a party torn apart by moderates and liberals, Rather said the one unifying force is that both want to get rid Donald Trump.

So now Ossoff can go back to making documentary films about Africa and living in the home he shares with his girlfriend outside the district he sought to represent. "The fight is still alive". The fact that that level of investment failed to pay off with a win against a Republican candidate widely viewed as uninspiring left Democrats frustrated and dispirited heading into the 2018 midterm elections. Yes, Democrats will point out that they didn't need this one; there are quite a few targets that lean less strongly to Republicans. "They have to start their planning now", Andrew Smith, a political-science professor and the director of the Survey Center at the University of New Hampshire, said in a recent interview. Yet she said the defeat in Georgia may not have been as bad as it appeared. And when Hollywood and Silicon Valley unite to tell them they are stupid, are ignorant, are racist, are homophobic, hate Muslims, and shouldn't love America so much, what do they expect the reaction from ordinary people will be? She said she has told Democrats to stop focusing on Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.

"The Democrats have to be hyper-focused on an economic message that tells people that the Republican Party is all about economic growth for millionaires and billionaires, and the Democratic Party is about economic growth for everybody", Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of CT told MSNBC. The legislation faces unanimous opposition from Democrats and skepticism from some Republicans, who have voiced concern about the secrecy of the drafting process.
