US Democrats look to future after big loss in Georgia election

Trump's statement comes as some elected Democrats are urging a turnover, especially in the House, following Tuesday's bruising defeat in a Georgia special congressional election that Democrats had thought they would win.

Trump was referring to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who is facing questions about her leadership after Democrats lost the Georgia special House election.

At Wednesday's briefing, Moulton called the results of the election frustrating.

The president also praised his administration's succession from the Paris climate accord, job growth, new policy on Cuba, and appointment of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, while criticizing the "fake news" outlets for not giving him credit for his accomplishments.

The Ohio Democrat made similar comments earlier Wednesday following Jon Ossoff's loss in the special election for Georgia's Sixth District.

"She personally told me she was rock solid" with the president, said Webb, 70.

The unpopularity of Trump and the Republican healthcare law - along with the historic trend that the party holding the White House loses seats in midterm elections - gives Democrats hope for capturing the House in 2018.

Lemon asked Ryan if he believed Pelosi was more toxic than Donald Trump.

Said the 77-year-old California lawmaker: "I feel very confident of the support that I have in my caucus".

"I think you'd have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top", Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Texas, who has previously supported Pelosi as leader, told Politico.

Surprisingly, Martin didn't let Ossoff off the hook that easily and pressed him on the fact that his campaign had outspent Republican Karen Handel by $2 million in ads alone. "It is possible that he could actually get re-elected if Democrats aren't careful". "That's no way to build a national party".

Pelosi isn't in danger of losing the leadership perch she's long held, though she did fend off her toughest challenge ever last fall from Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, who argued the party needed someone who better understood the rural, working-class voters that were critical to President Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton past year.

"I don't know that it makes that much of a difference", Owens said, about the debate.

Republican candidate for Georgia's 6th District Congressional seat Karen Handel celebrates with her husband Steve as she declares victory during an election-night. "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".

The election was held to fill the seat vacated by Mr Tom Price after he was appointed secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services.

One thing most everyone could agree on: Coming in second doesn't cut it now and wouldn't be an outcome to celebrate next November. They sense, correctly, that Democrats in Congress have sought not just to oppose Trump from Day One, but hope to actually remove him from office through the Russian Federation investigation.

Ellison said the Georgia 6th was not as competitive as 64 other House seats that Democrats could win in 2018 to wrest control away from Republicans, adding, "They're the ones who better be anxious".
