Karen Handel wins runoff for seat in United States House of Representatives

"That's the win for us today". Jaffe supports Medicare-for-All, one big issue that Pelosi has come under fire over by her constituents. The two candidates together had spent more money on this campaign than on any other House contest in USA history, over US$50 million.

And after she predicted incorrectly that Democrats were poised to take back the House a year ago, some of Pelosi's colleagues feel that this time around, she needs to deliver. "Karen was able to pull Republicans back together", said Jim Phillips, a 69-year-old retiree from Marietta who has volunteered on several Handel campaigns. Maybe it isn't. However, what is most concerning about progressive ideology is that it maintains the belief that ultimate good comes from a centrally planned state or in essence the government. In all four states, Democrats bolstered their historical performance in districts they lost by double-digit margins previous year.

But Rooney's district is significantly more Republican than Georgia's sixth congressional district, meaning any Democratic candidate faces even more of an uphill climb than Ossoff. All of the state's congressional seats, including Handel's, will be on the ballot as well. Would the existence of such a message have won Ossoff this race? "It will only get better in 2018".

"I don't know if there is a solution in the short term", Ryan said. It started with then-Sen. Georgia had the narrowest margin of the states that Obama did not win that year.

Contract is the latest in a series of mixed messages from the United States as it attempts to navigate the Gulf diplomatic crisis. Meanwhile, top donors trying to relieve the humanitarian crisis engulfing war-torn Syria met in Doha on Wednesday.

For perspective, both of these seats have been won by Republicans by 10-20 percentage points since 2010. That's why it came with an estimated $50m price tag, making it the most expensive House race in U.S. history.

While there are plenty of news reports highlighting how many people are calling for the House Minority Leader to step aside, few are also reporting that California's 12th District has another option. Jason Carter, grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, fared no better, falling just shy of 45 percent against incumbent Gov. Nathan Deal.

And in South Carolina's fifth district, Democrat Archie Parnell lost by a narrower 3.2 percent, according to the New York Times. He and other Democrats can't whine that they were out-spent by richer Republicans. "Indicates teams going in different directions", Jason Carter himself noted Wednesday morning on Twitter.

Along with Archie Parnell's loss Tuesday night in a SC special House election, Democrats have now lost four straight specials this year where at least some within the party saw the chance for an upset.

Down 7 and missing Francona, Indians rally to top Texas 15-9
The final pitch bounced, and catcher Willson Contreras zipped a low throw to first baseman Anthony Rizzo to close out the victory. Santana, Perez and Zimmer all doubled home runs in the inning to extend the Indians' lead to 15-9 on a season-high 19 hits.

In races without the national focus and Fort Knox-level spending, energized anti-Trump voters appeared to turn out at far higher rates than dispirited Republicans.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) brushed off concerns raised by some in the House Democratic Caucus that she is dragging them down in competitive races, saying her legislative and fundraising prowess make up for any downsides to being seen with her. As a result, Trump, with his vast local unpopularity, was her "greatest handicap".

Just ask Jon Ossoff, the guy who was supposed to emerge the victor of Georgia's special election - the guy who was supposed to trounce Karen Handel, and in so doing, underscore for President Donald Trump the fact his time had come and gone, and now the American voters want him gone. "I think our leadership owes us an explanation for what's gone on in these four elections, but also a plan for moving forward".
