White House paints Handel win as Trump triumph

"We're losing the ability to connect with voters on what the hell they think about every single day". I get no recommendations that I [should] support impeachment.

Handel won about 52 percent of the vote to quell the upstart phenomenon of Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old Democrat who raised more than $23 million, much of it from out of state.

Rep. Seth Moulton echoed her complaints in a Wednesday interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. The Democrats' special-election losses this week showed that what they have in free-floating anti-Trump money and angst they lack in strategy, message and candidates.

The Massachusetts Democrat, speaking on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" Wednesday afternoon, made his comments following his party's failure to win a closely watched special election in Georgia.

The campaigns and outside groups combined to spend over $50 million.

She backed Trump's desired rollback of Obamacare, but during her two debates with Ossoff, she sidestepped any utterance of Trump's name to a point where Jim Galloway, a columnist for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, cracked that "the clothes have no emperor".

Republicans can enjoy some breathing room after winning a Georgia special congressional race that morphed from an afterthought in the usually conservative Atlanta suburbs into an expensive national proxy for Washington wars ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Jon Ossoff, Democratic candidate for Georgia's 6th congressional district, talks to reporters during a stop at a campaign office in Chamblee, Ga.

"Expectations have changed. (Democrats) are disappointed with loss and (Republicans) relieved with win".

"Business as usual isn't working". "It's time for a new generation of leadership in the party". "I need to step back and do what's best for this party", said Rice. "Focus on the future".

The focus on Pelosi comes in part because she's the only figure in Democratic politics who is universally known and detested on the right.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California says in a letter to colleagues Wednesday that when President Donald Trump nominated House members to serve in his administration, he chose them from Republican districts the party knew it could win.

"With an increasing number of districts being drawn to deliberately favor one party over another - and with fewer voters indicating an interest in crossover voting - lots of potential candidates will look at those previous results and come to a conclusion that it's too hard to mount an election campaign in a district where their party is the minority", said John McGlennon, a longtime professor of government and public policy at the College of William & Mary in Virginia who has tracked partisan competition in elections. "The House remains in play now".

That reality was the subtext for Pelosi's taunting remarks Thursday in which she cast her Democratic critics as hungry for attention rather than serious about ousting her.

These same people want those from other nations to come to America seeking a better life, but they want a controlled and monitored immigration policy that rewards those individuals while keeping the criminal elements and terrorists at bay.

She continues to command a great degree of loyalty from many House Democrats, and allies dismissed the idea that her position was in any kind of jeopardy.

"Our leadership owes us an explanation", said Mr. Moulton, who voted against Ms. Pelosi in the last leadership election. Veteran GOP ad-maker Brad Todd says that's because the San Francisco congresswoman is the personification of the liberal values they can't stomach. And while the district is more Republican than the those counties as a whole, Trump only managed to beat Clinton there 48.3% to 46.8% - a 1.5 percentage-point margin.
