Summary: ” Democrats went on their special election losing streak on Tuesday as one of the party’s bright hopes, Jon Ossoff, lost his bid, for a suburban Atlanta Congressional seat long held by Republicans—a painful defeat that highlights deep fissures in the party. In addition to the Georgia race, the party failed to pick up seats vacated by Republican House members who joined the Trump cabinet in Kansas, Montana, and South Carolina, although they ran far ahead of their usual numbers. Hillary Clinton only lost the district by 1 percent in the 2016 presidential race and when Trump tapped Representative Tom Price to be his Health and Human Services Secretary, Democrats hoped they could might possibly win this seat, for the first of all time since the 1970s.
