Defiant Nancy Pelosi says she's not going anywhere

A special election in Atlanta, Georgia is the latest election victory for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California says in a letter to colleagues Wednesday that when President Donald Trump nominated House members to serve in his administration, he chose them from Republican districts the party knew it could win.

He credited national Republicans with helping to neutralize Ossoff's spending advantage but noted that fired-up Democrats have been winning larger-than-typical shares of the vote across the country, reflecting a potential enthusiasm gap among conservative voters "big enough to gravely imperil the Republican majority next November".

Handel said, "He was more than gracious and he thanked me for a spirited campaign".

Democratic leaders said there are at least 70 other districts that will be easier terrain for them than the one in Georgia after post-census gerrymandering in GOP-led states created so many heavily Republican districts. And they're not coming out in perhaps the numbers you want them to come out in.

She added: "You hate to say that it doesn't count, because any vote counts, but it's unnecessary".

"There are a lot of really important battles that we came out of on top of even as the minority", he said.

But while Pelosi's critics are increasingly vocal, they have not yet answered critical questions about who would fill her leadership and fundraising roles if they were to mount a serious challenge for the perch atop the party Pelosi has held since 2002.

"Obviously, I wasn't too confident about it, as the Democrats had this massive fundraising advantage and there was all of this enthusiasm" on the left, said Curbelo, who represents a district that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonSpecial election sweep boosts Trump agenda The Memo: Trump vote proves resilient in Georgia special election win Changing America, part V: The coming millennial boom MORE won previous year.

Handel becomes the first Republican woman to represent Georgia in Congress. And Handel, herself an establishment Republican, managed her association with Trump very carefully ahead of Tuesday night. I have enormous respect for her. For a Commander-in-Chief obsessed with "winning", the Georgia Six race will provide an undeniable short-term boon for his policies and office - a concrete victory in a world jaded with "fake news" and tilted media coverage.

"It was a reach then and I think it will still be a reach in 2018", said one Democratic operative following the race.

Keeping the seat in GOP hands takes immediate pressure off Republicans to go on offense here.

And the New York Times spoke to numerous Democrats - including Moulton - after the election who embraced the message that you can't just run against Trump.

Ossoff told his supporters: "The fight goes on".

THERE'S ONE LAST-MINUTE CURVEBALL, BUT IT MAY NOT MATTER A little-known political action committee unveiled a last-minute ad trying to link Ossoff to the shooting of a Republican House leader and others at a GOP congressional baseball team practice last week outside Washington.

Karen Handel's victory over Democrat Jon Ossoff was not an endorsement of the president.

Handel has handled Trump gingerly.

Handel, 55, embraces her experience as a statewide and local elected official.

Case in point: the special election held Tuesday in Georgia, in which Republican Karen Handel narrowly defeated her 30-year-old opponent, Democrat Jon Ossoff. She also welcomed a parade of national GOP figures to Atlanta to help her raise money, with Ryan and Vice President Mike Pence holding fundraisers following Trump's April visit. The Left continued to characterize the race as Ossoff versus Trump as the runoff drew nearer. But nothing that happened should make Republicans feel secure about their hold on the House of Representatives.
