Trump Taunts Democrats For Losing Special Elections

Trump Taunts Democrats For Losing Special Elections

But it was not to be as Ossoff lost by more than 10,000 votes in the most expensive House election in US history.

The race between Handel and Ossoff was a major focus for both parties, sparking $50 million in campaign spending.

The commander-in-chief then posted a third tweet, writing "Congratulations to Karen Handel on her big win in Georgia 6th".

The president is now under pressure from several investigations into his campaign's alleged collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election, and promised healthcare and tax reform has stalled in Congress.

Yesterday's victory demonstrates Republican roots in the race to replace party officials who left Congress to join the Trump administration, according to The Atlantic analysis.

He explained that Democrats will likely continue to be demoralized after the national party spent years intentionally not wanting to win elections. Democrats, however, saw an election victory with Rep. -elect Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) in California's 32 Congressional district.

Republican strategist Brian Robinson told Elliot that he believes Handel's win will be a blueprint for other Republican Congressional candidates looking to win in a district where President Trump may not be popular.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement: "Democrats from coast to coast threw everything they had at this race, and Karen would not be defeated". By doing so, Georgians and South Carolinians handed Trump personal victories - and the president responded by declaring himself undefeated in congressional races since taking office. In another tweet, Trump also congratulated Republican Ralph Norman, who won a special congressional election in SC.

Meanwhile, Ossoff's loss came in spite of massive Democratic fundraising.

Trump rose Wednesday morning and called on Democrats to learn from their latest losses by reaching across the aisle to work with him and Republicans. "Time to stop rehashing 2016 and talk about the future".

"I don't want to offend anyone here, but if the Democrats want to start winning..." But taking a step back, there's a silver lining for the party that's come up short: if Democrats can seriously compete in red districts in red states like these, they can seriously compete nearly anywhere.

Democratic candidate James Thompson raised $833,000 and disbursed $712,000 from his campaign funds.

As he's faced pushback from more conservative members within his own party on some legislation - particularly health care - Trump has begun to court Democratic votes, which, to this point, have been elusive.

The Democratic National Committee spent about $5 million to support Ossoff, and Planned Parenthood spent close to $1 million.
