BREAKING: GOP Dashes Dems' Upset Hopes in Kansas, Conservative Holds Congressional Seat

https://decisiondeskhq.com/results/kans ... -election/
Republican Ron Estes has defeated Democrat James Thompson in Kansas' fourth Congressional District, holding that seat for the GOP. As we mentioned earlier today in our preview of the race, this is theoretically a very safe red seat, with Republicans controlling it ever since the 1994 wave election. Just last fall, former Congressman Mike Pompeo won the district by more than 30 points, and Trump carried it with roughly 60 percent of the vote. This was a special election to replace Pompeo, who was tapped by the president to helm the Central Intelligence Agency. With more than 70 percent of precincts reporting, Estes held Thompson by six percentage points, enough of a margin for the race to be called:

High Democratic intensity (including lots of small donors from out of state), plus an exceptionally unpopular Republican Governor, plus an underwhelming candidate who declined to attend multiple candidate forums combined to set Democrats up for a potential upset. They've fallen short nonetheless. We'll wait for the final tally, but that sound you hear is a collective sigh of relief from the Republican Party, followed by another inhale as party strategists ponder whether this relatively close shave might be an omen of difficulties ahead. On the plus side for the GOP, Democrats have now gone 0-for-5 in seat-flipping opportunities at the state and federal levels since Trump's election (and actually gained a legislative seat in Louisiana). That's no small thing.

After President Obama's 2008 victory, Republicans pulled off several statement wins in gubernatorial contests (Bob McDonnell's blowout in Virginia and Chris Christie's win in deep blue New Jersey) and a major Senate race (the Scott Brown stunner in lefty Massachusetts) prior to the historic 2010 landslide. There were significant warning signs along the way. Those haven't materialized for Democrats in 2017 -- yet, at least. On the other hand, a single-digit win in deep red Kansas isn't remotely impressive. Democrats will point to the relatively close margin as a sign that the GOP is in trouble. Republicans will shrug and point out that they still won, even though the candidate was lackluster and had major ties to one of the least popular governors in America. Each party will have another chance to shape the narrative one week from tonight, when Georgia's sixth Congressional District votes. Click through for a brief explainer on the dynamics of that race.

Fantastic news. The dimoKKKRATS were all set to say that the election was a repudiation of President Trump's policies. President Trump did a robo-call there to help out.

Edit: I was just thinking that Sanford and mk e will blame the dimoKKKRAT loss on the Russians. :mrgreen:

One more thought: I was wondering if Jill Stein will be collecting money for a recount. :mrgreen:

Nobody expect the Dem to win that district.....but the Rep margin was 1/3 of what was expected which is what prompted Rump call, and Cruz appearances (he easily defeated Rump in the primary their), they were getting pretty nervous.

Yep...lossing by 9 points is a shock.

The dems had no role in helping this campaign. And to top it all of this guy had no experience in politics.

I'd like to say that in 2 years when the house and senate flip Trump will have his eyes opened..

But in reality he cant get anything done with a republican house and senate and hes constantly fighting with his own party so whats it really matter??? :lol:

There was an article that looked at what would happen if all races shifted 22 points...but that thinking is not very realistic. Well have to wait and see but I do expect some blowback, just not nearly that much.

Democrats Fall Short in Much-Hyped Georgia Special Election
Early in the evening, signs looked strong for Democrat Jon Ossoff as he hoped to attract a simple majority of the votes cast in today's GA-06 special election. If he'd done so, he'd have landed a major blow against President Trump and the GOP by avoiding a run-off in which most analysts believe Democrats have a steeper hill to climb. He did not. With a critical mass of the vote counted, Ossoff is projected to finish in the mid-to-high 40's, setting up a June 20 runoff against Republican Karen Handel. Overall turnout was robust and Ossoff performed well in the early voting, but a strong GOP showing on election day overtook that advantage -- setting up a familiar dynamic:

The biggest problem the democraps are facing is they have no leadership. For decades they have worked to make their "base" dependent on someone else for.....everything. This does nothing to create leadership.

Prime example of this can be seen in THIS article on Senator Sanders (D) from Vermont! :roll:

From that article:
Despite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck — and it was a government check.

“I never had any money my entire life,” Sanders told Vermont public TV in 1985, after settling into his first real job as mayor of Burlington.

One of his first jobs was registering people for food stamps, and it was all downhill from there.

The dimoKKKRATS poured a ton of money into the Georgia race to try and get a victory and they came up short. From what I read that money will not be there for the runoff. It was pretty much a go for broke effort and they came up broke. I love how CNN kept the results at 50.3% for hours with the dimoKKKRAT in the lead. They did the same thing during the Presidential election.

I also have seen that the dimoKKKRAT's spent $10 million on their candidate. The 11 Republicans had to split $2 million dollars. Also all the free local and national advertising Ossoff got. Then all the negative advertising the Republican candidates got and he still could not pull off 50%.
