Crowd bursts into "Trump" chant after Karen Handel Thanks POTUS in Victory

Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, defeated Ossoff 52 percent to 48 percent in the most expensive House race in U.S. history.In her victory speech, Handel offered “a special thanks to the president of United States of America,” which spurred the crowd to chant President Trump’s name.Democrats are now 0-4 in congressional races this year, despite spending millions and millions of dollars.
On Tuesday, Republicans also held onto the House seat in South Carolina that was vacated in by Mick Mulvaney so he could become the White House budget director.
The other two special elections this year in which Democrats failed to win a GOP House seat were in Kansas and Montana.
In Kansas, Republicans held onto the seat of Mike Pompeo, now the CIA director, and they kept the Montana seat of Ryan Zinke, who became Trump’s secretary of Interior.
