What if Trump doesn't sink the Republican Party?

Democrats on Tuesday also lost a special election in neighboring SC, where Republican Ralph Norman easily prevailed over Democrat Archie Parnell in a seat formerly held by Republican Mick Mulvaney, who is now Trump's budget director.

A district that has been sending Republicans to Washington for almost four decades sent another one to our federal city on Tuesday.

"Although America's largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, spent six figures in support of her opponent Jon Ossoff, Karen's record of courageous leadership won the day", Ms. Dannenfelser said in a statement.

If Trump Jr. truly wanted to avoid confusion he should have written "GOP" (same amount of characters) or even just "R" so he could have added a few more.

But it could give Republicans a boost in confidence as they struggle to advance health and tax legislation that has been bogged down by infighting and investigations into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in last year's presidential election. "That is a big deal".

The Republican victory in Georgia's recent special election shouldn't be taken for granted, according to the New York Post's John Podhoretz.

Republicans were victorious Tuesday in special elections in Georgia and SC, with voters sending Karen Handel and Ralph Norman to the House of Representatives. At the same time, Republicans and Congress still have historically low approval. Merely being against Donald Trump isn't enough, and we now have the results in four special elections to prove it. According to CNBC, Trump won this district's presidential votes by only 1.5 points.

And they will use issues like healthcare to mount a campaign against incumbents like Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Dallas. And hangdog Democrats were left looking for a message.

The young Democrat received 8.9 times as many many donors from California than from any other state in the union, including all of the totals from Georgia itself.

I think that is right.

That said, Trump continues to be incredibly unpopular and opposition parties run against who is in power. But the fact they turned it into a tight contest suggests President Trump is energising their voters. I've been saying all along that if you need to do that, if it makes you feel good then do that.

As for a party torn apart by moderates and liberals, Rather said the one unifying force is that both want to get rid Donald Trump. As Dave Weigel wrote in the Washington Post, "The ad strategy, and the campaign visit from Republicans such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, have had nearly nothing to say about what Republicans were working on in Washington". Take in the fragrance of the Earth. Go for a walk, listen to the birds chirping.
