Trump slams Democrats for stalling his legislative agenda

Trump slams Democrats for stalling his legislative agenda

"Congressman Scalise is a friend and what we all need to be doing is keeping the tenor down, and keeping him and the others who are injured in our prayers", she said.

Matthew Towery, who runs the polling firm Opinion Savvy, had Ossoff ahead by a single point on June 16: "It's all well within the margin of error". The former Army intelligence officer assembled an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle while blindfolded to mock Republican attacks that he was weak on the Second Amendment. But he didn't clear 50 percent of the vote in that race, setting up Tuesday's runoff election, in which Republicans will have consolidated behind Handel. However, one of those polls showed the race in a dead heat, and a poll at the beginning of May showed Handel leading by 2 points. "And with a commitment to working across the aisle to get things done, to holding people in Washington accountable regardless of their political party, some fresh leaders can hopefully break through some of this nonsense".

Desperate to salvage their decimated party after losing at every level last November, Democrats have put all their chips on the special election for Georgia's Sixth District.

Ossoff says House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who was shot on a suburban Washington, D.C. baseball field, is "fighting for his life". Ossoff previously called for Handel to "disown" the ad.

Should Handel win, Democrats will try to reassure one another that this is a "9.5-plus" Republican district - far more Republican than tens of districts that could be in play in 2018.

"We let that happen", she said. "On Tuesday, #VoteKarenHandel", Trump said, referring to Republican candidate Karen Handel. President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, House Speaker Paul Ryan and two members of Trump's cabinet with Georgia ties - Sonny Perdue and Tom Price - have previously campaigned with her.

Wisconsin's Republican party won 48.6 percent of the vote in the first election following the release of Wisconsin's current maps. When the efficiency gap is over 7 percent , it makes it extremely likely the majority party will maintain its electoral majority.

He said it had been "incredibly emotional working in there", adding: "On Saturday I went in myself and went to the top floor". They were reported missing by Catherine Lindsay - who was teaching them English - but the family has now been found.

Voters will decide Georgia's special election between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel, a race seen as an early bellwether in how the makeup of Congress could change during next year's midterms.

Democrats are anxious that they could lose the extremely close Georgia special election runoff to replace former Rep. Tom Price.

With recent polls showing Ossoff narrowly leading Handel in the traditionally GOP district, Republicans are hoping to stave off defeat.

Both candidates tried to avoid talk on Monday about the contest's national implications for Democrats and Republicans in the Trump era, but their supporters aren't treading as carefully.

On the campaign trail, Handel has highlighted her lifelong conservatism and experience in the private sector and in Georgia state politics.
