Rep. Peter King said last night's Republican victory in Georgia's special House election was a "devastating defeat for Democrats."
Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a race that set the news cycle ablaze and ended up being the the most expensive U.S. House race in history.
Democrats would do much better as a party if they got together with Republicans on Healthcare,Tax Cuts,Security. Obstruction doesn't work!

"It should send a signal to the president not the react to negative publicity. Just go forward," King urged.
"Don't bother tweeting. Just go ahead with your agenda and your program."
“Over the last seven months, no one has gotten worse media coverage, worse press, had more things going against him than President Trump," and yet Republicans still took the seat, King said.
King pointed to Georgia's election results to say voters still want to give President Trump a chance to get the job done and are not accepting the "negative posturing of Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats."
