Republican wins Georgia election in blow to anti-Trump effort

President Donald Trump won the district in November easily and Mulvaney had held onto his seat since 2011. The seat became open when President Donald Trump tapped Rep. Tom Price to be his secretary of health and human services. The president made a veiled reference to the millions of dollars Democrats poured into Ossoff's campaign, adding that "All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0" for the party.

Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel defeated her Democrat opponent, one-time national security aide Jon Ossoff. With tens of millions of dollars behind his campaign, fresh-faced, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff was unable to flip the district's House seat blue for the first time in decades, losing to Republican Karen Handel by almost four points in the runoff.

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.

Did Danny Ainge just reveal that the Celtics are drafting Jayson Tatum?
Throughout the college season, the projected No. 1 overall pick was either him or UCLA's Lonzo Ball . One reason why they look like they could succeed is that they have another high draft pick.

In another tweet, Trump also congratulated Republican Ralph Norman, who won a special congressional election in SC. They just knew the lazy narrative they should latch onto because it has now been ingrained following months of Trump's presidency and Democrats coming close but not pulling out special elections in Republican districts. But it was demoralizing for Democrats, who also lost a special election in neighboring SC.

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.

Ossoff then said that the majority of Handel's outside funding came from Washington, D.C., whereas his funding came largely from California Democrats. "We need a genuinely new message, a serious jobs plan that reaches all Americans, and a bigger tent". None of the special elections in Georgia past year had more than a 15 percent voter turnout rate.

Russian Federation slams Trump's policy on Cuba
US President Donald Trump will announce his administration's changes to U.S. -Cuba policy , according to the Miami Herald. Despite the president's claim, the Obama policy will be revised rather than overturned entirely.

He said: 'Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O!

[F] or Democrats, having failed to unseat a Republican in four special House elections in a row despite an extremely energized base, it's now a time for soul-searching - and finger-pointing. Maybe another candidate or another strategy could have won, but I remain impressed by Ossoff, a 30-year-old first-time candidate who took everything the Republican Party could throw at him without losing his composure, and whose decent and hopeful campaign inspired thousands of volunteers to work their hearts out.
