White House paints Handel win as Trump triumph

"They raised a fortune for him", Trump said.

"Maybe they don't want to play in that arena, but I'm very proud of the members who do", she said. If elected, I will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker.

"If you were talking about a company that was posting losing numbers, if you were talking about any sports team that was losing time and time again, changes would be made, right?" Sure it would be nice if less money was spent in politics, but complaining about such spending after he did everything in his power to stack the deck against his opponent is disingenuous.

In fact, in all four special elections - including a surprisingly close race in SC also on Tuesday - Democrats outperformed Hillary Clinton in 2016, and they really only tried hard in one of them (Georgia).

Democrats can console themselves by pointing out that Price won his last election by 23 percentage points.

Though Pelosi has done some good work, Ossoff's loss raises an interesting question - does the Democratic party need to rid itself of some of its most toxic symbols of establishment if we hope to regain anything in 2018 and beyond?

In the meantime, Democrats have a problem with their own approval ratings.

Ryan told CNN that his constituents are more concerned about economic issues than congressional investigations into allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

A reporter asked how the minority leader would respond to President Trump's latest tweet attacking her, as well as "Republicans who believe that you are actually helpful to them in some of these races".

"Whether she's a leader or not is up for the (Democratic) caucus to decide", Moulton said.

"So you want me to sing my praises? That's no way to build a national party".

BENNETT: It's a criticism rooted in generational angst about the future of the Democratic Party and its leaders.

It's come to this: For leadership that doesn't repel a majority of Americans, Democrats need to recruit someone who doesn't represent the truth about their party. "They vote based on ideas that the candidate has, and we have to speak more to the everyday working class people who look to us for leadership". While Handel defeated Ossoff by about 10,000 votes and almost 4 percentage points, Republican outside groups had to spend $18 million defending a district where the party's candidates won easily for decades.

Rice's sentiment was echoed by other House Democrats in recent months including Reps. Ryan told CNN that the Democrat's "brand is just bad".
