So far, Trump effect has led only to GOP victories

So far, Trump effect has led only to GOP victories

President Donald Trump says Republicans benefit as long as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi remains in power.

Republicans aired numerous ads against Jon Ossoff, the Democratic candidate in the Georgia race, that cast him as beholden to Pelosi and what the GOP characterized as her big spending liberal values from San Francisco.

Republicans won two seats in the U.S. House late Tuesday, defeating Democrats in SC and also in the most expensive U.S. House race in history, Georgia's 6th Congressional District.

Ossoff ended up losing to Republican Karen Handel by a four-point margin - 51.9 to 48.1 percent.

Trump's tweet came amid criticism from some Democrats that Pelosi is becoming a drag on the party. In February, he called on the president to stop making "unforced errors" that take over headlines, according to The Hill.

"Democrats would do much better as a party if they got together with Republicans on Healthcare, Tax Cuts, Security", Trump said on Wednesday morning in a tweet after the election.

"Those issues are very important, and I don't think we should yield any ground at all on those issues because they're vital to our society when you're talking about refugees, you're talking about a woman's right to choose, when you're talking about voting rights", he said. Previously, they couldn't win in Kansas or Montana, which also held special elections to fill seats left empty as Trump chose his Cabinet members. I have enormous respect for her.

But out of all the GOP candidates who have won in four special elections so far this year, Handel was the only one who actually overperformed the president. "All the Fake News, all the money spent (equals) 0". And anyway, parties don't win the House by winning the 24 (what the Democrats need) easiest seats; they fail to win some with a better partisan balance and pick off a few that look hard going in.

"We need to have a plan, we need to have a vision, we need to tell Americans why Democrats will be better, not just why Trump is bad", the Massachusetts Democrat said. Keep raising the concern that something needs to change within the ranks of the party's leadership. "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". "The people in the district chose who they wanted their candidate to be". But they now have only 187 to the Republicans' 246 - a net loss of 46 seats.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is telling Democrats that next year could be the year they take back control of the House.

"We have closed the gap dramatically", said Rep. Keith Ellison, who lost a bid to become the chair of the Democratic National Committee.
