Democrats Play Blame Game With Pelosi After Georgia Election - To GOP's Glee

Debate has swirled among Democrats about what strategy to deploy: going all in with a nationwide anti-Trump agenda, or tailoring individual races to local economic issues in a bid to fix fraying connections between the Democratic Party and the common voter.

"What happened on that ballfield was a bad tragedy and we need to all continue to lift up Steve and the others who were injured that day", Handel said. "If you stay mad, you stay angry, you're unproductive". "Personally, I think it's time for new leadership in the party".

The Massachusetts Democrat, speaking on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" Wednesday afternoon, made his comments following his party's failure to win a closely watched special election in Georgia. "It's time for some change".

Our guess is that, bereft of new ideas, the party will continue its dreary and fruitless "resistance" march, egged on by its increasingly radicalized base and a fiercely anti-Trump news media.

"Right now, what I'm pushing for is a conversation within the caucus", Rice said. We have 80-year-old leaders and 90-year-old ranking members. "That's the most important part".

"This is about much more than one race: the national environment, unprecedented grassroots energy and impressive Democratic candidates stepping up to run deep into the battlefield leave no doubt that Democrats can take back the House next fall", he wrote.

"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, told Politico.

Among the reasons for Hillary Clinton's defeat may have been her reliance on endorsements from celebrities such as Beyonce, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga. "It's all of our responsibility", she told Fox News' "America's News HQ", amid renewed questions about Washington Democrats having failed to connect with working Americans. Parnell may have benefited from the lack of national attention on that race, though. House Speaker Paul Ryan congratulated her on a "hard-earned and well-deserved victory", saying in a statement released Tuesday, "Democrats from coast to coast threw everything they had at this race and Karen would not be defeated". "She fits the stereotype of exactly what swing voters can't stand about the Democratic Party".

It was the most expensive house race in history, with more than $50 million spent and it denied democrats their first major victory of the Donald Trump era.

One of their ads even features the Bay Area and branded the two Democrats together, putting his photo alongside hers on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Moulton backed Pelosi's challenger Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in 2016.

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".

Democrats celebrated the fact that they had turned a conservative stronghold into a competitive district.

She acknowledged the attacks but added: "I think I'm worth the trouble". Party leaders profess encouragement from the trends, but the latest losses mean they will have to rally donors and volunteers after a tough stretch of special elections.

Congressman Bill Pascrell of New Jersey says, "A loss is a loss is a loss, and there's no excuses".

There's also an even more basic reality: Showing that the party will dump its leader if Republicans are persistently negative enough about that leader only gives the GOP more incentive to use aggressive tactics - and puts the next Democratic leader on tepid ground from the outset. Last cycle alone, she raised $141.5 million.

She complained of the "vitriolic things that they say that resulted in calls to my home constantly, threats in front of my grandchildren - really, predicated on their comments and their paid ads".
