Trump takes a Twitter victory lap, taunts Democrats for losing special elections

"If we had even a little Democrat support, just a little, like a couple of votes - you would have everything", he told the crowd. "So, we've got to stand for those issues, we've got to fight for those issues, but the thrust of our message needs to be an economic one, because no matter who's hearing you, and you may be with them on the other issues, they know that you're talking about what they're thinking about every day at their own kitchen table". The district has been a Democratic graveyard since the Carter administration.

But their Georgia victory was not to be.

The ultra-liberal House minority leader was featured in numerous GOP ads linking her to 30-year-old political novice Jon Ossoff, a Democratic recruit, in the weeks leading up to Tuesday's election.

"So you want me to sing my praises?"

That followed another recent Democratic disappointment in Montana, where the Republican candidate won even after last-minute assault charges, and an earlier loss for the Democrats in Kansas. Price had won re-election last November by more than 20 points. But in politics, as in baseball, moral victories don't show up in the standings.

As President Donald Trump celebrated Republican victories in two special congressional elections on Wednesday, one man who advised presidents from both parties warned the results "should be a wake-up call for Democrats" that Trump could be on his way to re-election in 2020. There, they fared better than most observers had foreseen. A Handel loss would likely have been seen as not only a referendum on Mr. Trump, but a referendum on the GOP's progress - or lack thereof - on health care so far this year.

Cuba rejects new USA policy, saying pressure will not work
Carnival Corp. also said it was "pleased" the changes will allow its ships to continue to sail to Cuba . Experts say the devil will be in the details of the regulations to be drafted over coming months.

Are there lessons to be learned?

But the Grammy-winner has also been critical of the Democratic Party.

Since the special election in April, President Trump has been campaigning for Handel through various outlets including his twitter account. Some, of course, were simply exhausted of the status quo and wanted to shake things up. Many Democrats hope to harness that energy during the 2018 mid-terms, when the entire House will be up for re-election. "That's a tough thing to ask a candidate running for Congress".

The comments come as the executive director of Trump's campaign confirmed to CNN that Trump will host his first re-election campaign fundraising event next Wednesday at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC.

Seven months after a majority in the district pulled the lever for the presidential candidate with an "R" on the ballot, they did the same in the special congressional election.
