White House paints Handel win as Trump triumph

Of the political impact of the Republican attacks: "I think I'm worth the trouble", she said.

Republican candidate for Georgia's 6th District Congressional seat Karen Handel declares victory during an election-night watch party Tuesday, June 20, 2017, in Atlanta.

"We showed the world that in places where no one thought it was possible, we could fight", Mr Ossoff told supporters. In the weeks and months ahead, the must find what is and fix it. She has held her party together in the House through many hard fights - ask veterans of the Obama administration - but she also has become a prime target for GOP ad makers as a symbol of the Democrats' liberal and bicoastal leanings. "And usually they go after the most effective leaders, because they want to take us, diminish the opportunity that we have". "Because in these United States of America, no one - no one - should ever feel their life threatened over their political beliefs and positions". Actor John Leguizamo dramatically claimed that the future of democracy depended on the outcome of this congressional election. In the DCCC memo, Luján said the House Republican agenda is "deeply unpopular" and that the pending GOP health-care bill "will haunt every single House Republican through Election Day".

The small number of House Democrats who opposed Pelosi's reelection as leader of the Democratic caucus, headed by Tim Ryan of OH, who ran against her, renewed their calls for a change in party leadership. Sixry percent of voters in the district have a bachelor's degree or higher, compared to 29% of Georgia voters overall, according to 2015 US Census data. "I don't think people in the beltway are realizing just how toxic the Democratic Party brand is in so many parts of the country", said Ryan.

The apparent effectiveness of that messaging suggested to some that the 77-year-old Californian could be a liability for Democrats as they aim to regain their majority. They promised a win in Montana, but Greg Gianforte beat his Democratic opponent for Montana's at-large House seat by nearly six points, despite being charged with assaulting a reporter on the eve of the election. But for now they said a different approach would rest on the party message - not Pelosi.

Karen Handel said she is ready to get to work after her victory in the 6th Congressional District runoff. Most recently, Tom Price resigned in February to join Trump's administration.

After the tragic incident Redbridge Council reviewed the fire safety arrangements in all of the 18 high rises within the borough. Documents and materials have been seized from a number of organisations as part of this process, the police said.

A documentary filmmaker and former congressional aide, Ossoff is the sort of candidate the ossified national party often favors in close races - lightly seasoned, studiously bland and loosely linked to the district, where he doesn't happen to live.

She held a fundraiser with Vice President Mike Pence - but not a rally. She pointed voters instead to her "proven conservative record" as a state and local elected official.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -The Democratic Party losing special elections in Kansas, Montana, South Carolina and Georgia, has prompted renewed calls for the ouster of Rep. Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader.

In the well-to-do Atlanta suburbs, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California was the focus of torrents of negative advertising in a House race that cost more than $50 million, the most expensive in history. The Republican campaign establishment, however, helped make up the difference. "This became a focal point in our messaging, as well as other outside groups and the Handel campaign itself".

On policy, Handel mostly echoes the GOP line. "That would be very bad for the Republican Party - and please let Cryin' Chuck stay!"

Both the Georgia and SC losses, Clyburn said, had nothing to do with Pelosi in his view, but he said that Republican outside spending - which largely highlighted her - "had a tremendous adverse impact, no question about that".
