Pelosi tries to reassure Dems after Georgia loss

The Georgia race was seen by many as an early referendum on Trump.

The lesson for Democrats is that anti-Trumpism is not enough, at least not at this point.

Just as Democrats accused Republicans of being sexist and racist for not electing Hillary Clinton last November, that seems to be the go-to excuse now. That makes the party 0-for-4 in this year's races for Republican-held congressional seats. "For Democrats, expenditures in that range failed to secure victory", Georgia University professor of political science Charles Bullock told The Straits Times in an e-mail.

"[Ossoff] Race better be a wake up call for Democrats - business as usual isn't working", Democrat Rep. Seth Moulton of MA tweeted out.

"We're not focusing on the economic messages".

Ossoff, who outraised his opponent by a margin of over 6 to 1, was endorsed by Georgia Congressman John Lewis, a Democrat well-known for his stance on gun control, then publicly sparred with Handel over the state's controversial campus carry measure and was embraced by gun control groups. "It's time for a new generation of leadership in the party". There Republican Ralph Norman easily prevailed over Democrat Archie Parnell for a seat formerly held by Republican Mick Mulvaney, now Trump's budget director.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pelosi said Democrats are proud of the race they ran and she dispelled a question about stepping down.

The outcomes in Georgia and SC also could boost Republican efforts to advance health and tax legislation that has been bogged down by infighting and investigations into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in last year's presidential election.

The President said Democrats were not willing to work with Republicans on the pending health care legislation at his Wednesday night rally, saying that even if the GOP came up with the "greatest health care plan in the history of the world" they would not get a single vote from Democrats.

Those seats were up for grabs again Tuesday in special House elections, and Republicans again won. In all four states, Democrats bolstered their historical performance in districts they lost by double-digit margins a year ago.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), who ran an unsuccessful campaign to unseat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) past year, said Thursday it will be hard for his party to take back control of the House with Pelosi at the helm.

Wasserman also notes, interestingly, that races that attract huge turnout, such as the Georgia contest, show the capacity of Republicans to get their base to the polls when the stakes are considered high. "We have a unique opportunity to flip control of the House of Representatives in 2018", he said.

Spending on the race reached at least $57 million, almost twice the previous record, according to the Center for Responsive Politics watchdog group.
