Shortly after the Karen Handel win in Georgia’s 6th District race for the U.S. Congress the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) sent out the following in an email to their supporters:
[W]e know yesterday didn’t go as we hoped.
Make no mistake, we’re disappointed, and we know you are too.
But this race should have never been this close. Republicans had to pour tens of millions into a race that should’ve easily been theirs.
That gives us so much hope as we look toward 2018.
Let’s look at what each candidate raised and spent in the Georgia 6th District race:
The fact is that it was the Democrats who “poured tens of millions” into this race. In fact Democrats poured $32 million into the 4 special congressional elections to date and lost all of them.
Most of Ossoff’s money came from outside of the 6th District. Ossoff spent 7 times what Handel spent and lost by 6 percentage points. Democrats are living in La La Land if they believe this gives them “hope” as they look forward to 2018.
But wait, not so! The DCCC believes the Congress is in play in 2018!
The DCCC email contains a link to a video made by DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján who declares that the Democrats have a “real shot” at taking back the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018:
In the Daily Wire column 4 Dumbest Democratic Reactions To Their Stunning Defeat In The Georgia 6th Ben Shapiro lists the following reactions to Ossoff’s loss:
- Republicans Are Just Evil.
- Democrats Must Move To The Left.
- We Need A Hug.
- Civility Will Never Work!
To date Democrats have lost 4 special elections. The DCCC and Luján made the Georgia District 6 race a referendum on President Trump and his make America great again (MAGA) agenda. The DCCC was right, it was a referendum on President Trump’s agenda. That’s why Handel won handily. The DCCC has lost every special election, against a President and Republican Party that has relentlessly been demonized in the media, by some Republicans and most all Democrats.
So the Democrat base wants the DCCC to do more of the same, expecting different results?
This reminds us of how the media and Democrats treated candidate Trump during the 2016 presidential election. They lost in November 2016. They continue to lose.
The DCCC message has not changed. Luján keeps singing the same tune. The Democrats will keep losing if they go down the path of hating Republicans, moving even further to the left, hugging one another and abandoning civility and resisting anything and everything proposed by Republicans.
Democrats are still in La La Land, while Republicans are laughing their Ossoffs.
When your opponent is committing suicide, don’t interfere.
