Trump rides high after Republican election win

26 June 2017, 09:48 | Gladys Abbott

"The fact that we have spent so much time talking about Russian Federation has been a distraction from what should be the clear contrast between Democrats and the Trump agenda, which is on economics", Murphy said on "Morning Joe" recently.

With the Georgia victory, Republicans showed that they could still win in the kind of affluent, educated districts where Democrats have made gains and Trump's populist agenda was sometimes a tough sell.

Another Democrat who has been pushing for leadership changes, Rep. Filemon Vela of Texas, told CNN the group didn't make any decisions at Thursday's meeting, but those who participated believe there is growing unrest among House Democrats about the direction of the current leadership team.

With the president's approval numbers hovering below 40 percent, should the Democrats be anxious about their losing streak in what could be considered an election year's pre-season? With multiple Republican hopefuls keeping the party apparatus neutral, only Democrats mounted an effective get-out-the-vote effort in April. "And once again, he proved, never underestimate him, and that the American people put him and other Republicans in place for a reason: They have an agenda".

Congressional Democrats have accused Republicans of shutting them out of the debate over issues such as health care and taxes.

"It certainly boosts Republican morale", said Rep. Tom Cole (Okla.), a former chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), the House GOP's campaign arm.

"Look I don't think there's anything wrong with the message", she responded to co-hosts saying the Democrat's message was faulty.

In 2016, Tom Price won the 6th District by almost 24 points. "We're doing what we need to do", he said, "and I'm working on a plan to rebuild the money that we spent now".

Eid al-Fitr: What you need to know
Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the end of Muslim fasting month of Ramzan, will be celebrated across Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. Similar congregational prayers are also scheduled to be held at district and tehsil headquarters across the state.

That reality was the subtext for Pelosi's taunting remarks Thursday in which she cast her Democratic critics as hungry for attention rather than serious about ousting her.

Ossoff was the referendum for Democrats v. Trump.

"Whether she's a leader or not is up to the caucus to decide", Moulton said.

Iacobelli voted for Hillary Clinton as an alternative to Trump, but acknowledged that "it freaks me out that I voted Democrat".

When the top post among House Democrats might open up, though, Pelosi hasn't said.

Democratic candidate for 6th congressional district Jon Ossoff, left, concedes to Republican Karen Handel while joined by his fiancee Alisha Kramer at his election night party in Atlanta, Tuesday, June 20, 2017. Iacobelli said she would be open to supporting other Democratic candidates, but wants them to be more independent and more compelling. "It is possible that he could actually get re-elected if Democrats aren't careful".

"It says: Perhaps the approach that's being taken in Congress and by the president are more acceptable to a swing district or swing-voting parts of the country than people are predicting". And contrasts between party leaders and the base that were on display throughout the Democratic presidential primary still exist. A Handel ad portrayed Ossoff - who ran on a decidedly moderate message - as a San Francisco-style liberal aligned with "Nancy Pelosi and outsiders who just don't share our priorities". Chris Murphy told MSNBC. "It seems like a flawless year to have outsiders who inspire in an authentic way".
