House Democrat: 'We need new leadership' - | Continuous News | Bozeman, Montana

Handel won about 52 percent of the vote to quell the upstart phenomenon of Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old Democrat who raised more than $23 million, much of it from out of state.

"Say "no" to Pelosi's "yes" man", blared one ad from the Congressional Leadership Fund super PAC.

"All we do is win, win, win", the President said to cheers in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, as he pressed Democrats to support his legislative agenda in the Congress. A progressive, left-wing platform would have been hard for small government conservative voters to support, no matter Trump's unpopularity; perchance, Mr. Ossoff would have lost by far more. Dean's group actually endorsed Ossoff, and he gladly took that San Francisco and Hollywood money.

It was at the heart of their strategy to turn out reliably Republican voters who might be queasy with Trump's first five months in office, but did not want to see Pelosi and national Democrats celebrate a marquee victory in their own backyard.

In the Ossoff race, even though the 30-year-old documentary filmmaker and former congressional staffer ended up running a more centrist and not Trump-centric campaign, Republicans were able to zero in on the more than $23 million in donations Ossoff raised, largely from liberal enclaves like California and NY, and make an easy connection to Pelosi.

"I think in this instance it had a motivating effect for our voters on the turnout front", Rogers said Wednesday.

He followed it up with a Wednesday morning tweet contending that Democrats "would do much better as a party" if they worked with Republicans on Trump's agenda.

"It is Pelosi", Todd said, "who remains a pretty big drag for Democrats at the polls in certain districts, particularly this one". The president himself struggled here, though, edging Democrat Hillary Clinton but falling short of a majority among an affluent, well-educated electorate that typically has given Republican nominees better than 60 percent of the vote. The same, exhausted centrist Democratic playbook that has come up short cycle after cycle will not suffice.

15 killed as twin explosions rock Parachinar
Earlier during the day, a bomb blast had killed as many as 13 people in Quetta and injured scores. In January, at least 20 people were killed in Parachinar in a bombing at a vegetable market.

"It shows us that people are wanting some of the things we've been talking about, President Trump's been talking about - less government, more power to the folks". Now, with Obama and Reid gone, Republicans have occasionally tried latching Democratic senators to Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren, with mixed results.

"Look, I think the Democratic Party has to come to terms with the fact that what we're doing isn't working", Moulton said. Democrats need a rescue plan.

Pelosi allies have pushed back at the blame game and pointed to the improvement Democrats had in other special elections in Kansas, Montana and SC as evidence that their efforts to harness the resistance against Trump was working.

Georgia's 6th district used to be a considered a shoe-in for Republicans but has more recently become contestable.

In 2016, Tom Price won the 6th District by almost 24 points.

Pelosi is confronting renewed questions about her leadership In the wake of a dispiriting loss for Democrats in a Georgia special House race.

Democrats were hesitant to attack the President in such a historically heavily Republican district.
