Pelosi tries to reassure Dems after Georgia loss

Democrats beat the spread. But that's not enough - Honolulu, Hawaii news, sports & weather - KITV Channel 4

Even though Trump won the reliably red state in the 2016 presidential election, he did so by just 1 percent, as opposed to former Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who claimed the state with a 26-point lead.

The two Republican victories last night come as the latest set of close but no cigar losses for Democrats in special elections this year.

"We do see shifts, fairly large shifts, in some areas, from Republican to Democrat, within the 6th District and that's going to mean a lot with specific House races coming up in '18", he said.

The Democrats expended vast amounts of money, celebrity, and political capital in support of Jon Ossoff, an attractive young candidate running in a district filled with high-income, highly educated voters.

Along with earlier wins in Kansas and Montana, Republicans are enjoying a special election sweep in House races over Democrats this year, albeit in Republican hotbeds.

Congressional Democrats have accused Republicans of shutting them out of the debate over issues such as health care and taxes.

"Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O!" the president tweeted.

Georgia race finally heads to voters; DC watching closely
That's less than the margin of error and FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver cautions that " Georgia 6 is a tough district to diagnose". Handel celebrated the early numbers with her supporters at an area hotel, saying she improved on her April primary performance.

Democrats have had four opportunities to pick up seats in the U.S. House of Representatives since Donald Trump became president, and haven't been able to capitalize on any of them.

Owens pushed back against national debate over whether Ossoff ran a too progressive campaign or a too moderate campaign.

Despite the defeat, Democrats could use this his hard-fought campaign as rallying cry for the 2018 elections. "Obamacare is a disaster", Trump said.

The Georgia race featured a nail-biting finish, with the possibility of flipping a traditionally-Republican district. Mulvaney, who is a founding member of the far-right Freedom Caucasus of the Republican party, won by landslides in each of his elections.

Indeed, when Trump's White House tapped four Republican congressman for prominent posts in the GOP administration, the immediate assumption was that Republicans would have little trouble holding onto these seats.

According to Atlantic monthly, "Compared with November's results, the GOP margins of victory declined from almost 16 points to 6 in Montana, 23 points to less than 4 in Georgia, 21 points to 3 in SC, and 31 to about 7 in Kansas.

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