Well, it was exciting but Ossoff lost.

He didn't get over 50% in the first round and now Republicans are going to gang up against him so his chances of winning are reduced.

On the other hand, Ossoff came so close to 50% that Handel is going to have a real task on her hand of convincing all the people who chose another Republican candidate to back her in the runoff. Republican candidates as a whole took about 51% of the vote, but Handel herself only got 19.5%. Between people who may choose to stay home because their candidate lost and people whose second choice was Ossoff, it'll be tough for Handel to keep Ossoff from making it over 50% in the runoff.

I love how Trump is bragging about the Kansas win where the GOP didn't win in a landslide in one of the most conservative districts in the state or how Ossof didn't get the 50 percent but clearly has a big chance of winning in June. Trump this is bad for you. It shows that things are swinging left come 2018 and you have a serious chance of losing the house. You're just to dense to realize.

The GOP might lose the house. I'm not sure Trump himself really gives a shit.

If he does he can say goodbye to getting anything accomplished.

As long as he can blame someone else he probably doesn't care. Yes, it would make it more difficult to enrich himself and his family but I wouldn't be surprised if he is just too lazy to care.

...And then he can blame the Democrats and Obama for all his failures. Win/win situation for him.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

He's already doing that.

Considering how well the Republican strategy of obstruct everything and blame Obama worked, Trump wont give a shit until hes out of people he can throw under the bus. And i imagine that list is about as long as the list people who work in the government.

Once he's out of people he can throw under the bus, he'll pick up their mangled corpses and throw them under the train.

Count Jason Chaffetz's seat up for grabs in Utah as the Republican moron who's been blocking most investigations into Trump from atop the House Intel Committee is saying he's not going to run for reelection.  Guess he took a look at his poll numbers and said "oh well that's a loss for me."

Really I was expecting a pendulum swing back to blue due to how American politics work.  I didn't expect it to be this hard and this fast.  The Dems need to take a look at every Republican race right now and think about going all in on a few because if Georgia can go blue, think of other places.

Ironbite-like Wisconsin.

The problem with Wisconsin is that it is so heavily gerrymandered that the last state election had the Democrats winning over 60% of the vote... and only 49% of the seats. This state no longer has a functional democracy.

Plus they have one of the strictest voter IDsuppression laws in the country.

Meanwhile, odds on whether Trump's going to fire Spicer so he can give his old pal Bill O'Reilly a new job?
