Dems lost ground compared to the Presidential level, but gained ground with the Congressional margin.. Quite a few typically Republican voters in this district broke with the party at the top of the ticket in November, but stayed Republican on the Congressional level. The Democrats needed those split ticket voters from November to vote Democratic in the special, some did, just not enough.

They have no clue. None.
It's going to be very interesting during the 2018 election if Trump is mired down in legal troubles. Flynn is probably blabbing big time to the investigators now in order to save his skinny butt from prison. He knows plenty and some of it may be about Trump's involvement in the Russian hacking. Or Trump may have suspicious $$$ involvement with Russia. Then there is Jarod Kushner's possible collusion... All this could be very detrimental to the Republican candidates if it is exploding during the election season.

LOL... That's an awful lot of wishful thinking.

You're still living the Russian collusion dream? Maybe you should move there, since their policies align better with the Democratic party.

Do you think Tom Perez was a good choice for DNC Chair? They haven't learned a thing. In fact, they're doubling down on the failure as they cuss their way off the cliff.

The country sees who the problem is. The Dems are the ones mired in some fantasy of obstruction and chasing rabbits.

Do you believe the Dems can keep the investigations (witch hunt) going on for another 17 months? They better hope Trump isn't cleared before the mid-terms because cleared he will be, and when he is... the Dems are going to look like chumps who spent 10s of millions of our dollars on an investigation to nowhere.

Maybe they'll find a Libby Scooter clone to save face. Awesome

The investigation will go on as long as need be to find out if Trump and Kushner were involved in colluding with the Russians. Michael Flynn is now working with investigators. It took 2 years for Watergate. Nixon went down. Trump will also.

That is a ridiculous statement. Boy, are the Pubs delusional. I only hope we have some reporters like Wooodward and Bernstein working on the collusion story. Trump is going DOWN.

If Trump stays in power, it will be the end of freedom as we know it.

Don't know that a "pub" might be. But it's clear the Democrat party can't win elections.
