"Karen Handel has won Georgia's record-breaking special congressional election, dashing hopes by Democrats to pull off an upset in the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections". Where do we want to go as a party? Lawmakers and strategists fretted about the party's inchoate message, and some called the race a sign that Democrats should not bet too heavily on converting red-tinged suburbs to win a majority in the House. The 4-point win in the most expensive congressional race in history was a blow to Democrats, who tried to wrest control of a suburban Atlanta district that Republicans have held since the 1970s. And yet they came up short, as they have in every special election this year involving a Republican congressional seat.
The election will not significantly change the balance of power in Washington, where Republicans control the White House and both chambers of Congress. Democrats on Tuesday also lost a special election in neighboring SC, where Republican Ralph Norman easily prevailed over Democrat Archie Parnell in a seat formerly held by Republican Mick Mulvaney, who is now Trump's budget director.
Democrats are wondering if is time to ditch Nancy Pelosi as their leader after suffering a stinging defeat Tuesday night in the special election for a congressional seat in Georgia.

But it wasn't what Democrats who pumped $23 million into Ossoff's campaign so desperately craved: "A win". "Shifts of that magnitude next year would topple many House Republicans holding more marginal seats than these four". When Ossoff started the race he channeled national anger at the president before pivoting away from Trump and focusing on local politics.
Of the four districts that were Republican in January, the number of them that are still Republican is four! "All of the television networks, other than Fox who has treated us fairly", Trump said. Mulvaney beat his last Democratic opponent by 20 points, The Herald reported Tuesday.
Ossoff was seen to have a 7 percent lead in some surveys recently, but relentless conservative attacks on the former Obama official-linking him to House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and even the comedian Kathy Griffin-seemed to galvanize the GOP base.
According to a report in The Hill, Democratic leadership has come under intense criticism by the rank-and-file for Ossoff's loss to Handel.
