"Alarmed by the tight race for a congressional seat in Ohio, Republicans are steeling for a 90-day campaign of trench warfare as they fight to keep control of the House, pinning their hopes on well-funded outside groups and a slashing negative message about Democrats.

Voting across the Midwest and West laid bare the party’s precarious situation on Wednesday: Ohio’s special election exposed deep vulnerabilities in the historically conservative suburbs of Columbus, and the Republican candidate there held a slim lead over his Democratic challenger."

This is the same BS we heard before and during the 2016 presidential race. fog

Don't even want it at this point.

The orange moron is already blaming the Dems for not passing his crap when they aren't even needed.

Can you imagine the whining over Twitter if he actually needed any Dem votes for his crap?

I'd actually be happier if we just let the republicans stay in power 6 more years. This is their sh&t sandwich, let them eat the whole thing.

So the media is saying that the OH GOP is in trouble.
Not because they lost. (they didn't)
But because they won by only a little.

That media sure is smart.

I think that was wapo's spin... pretty pathetic... i didn't follow election results so when i saw the idea being floated that gop was in real trouble i tried to find what they were talking about... and ya, it literally amounted to nothing more than "republicans lost because they didn't win by that much"...

hate trump all you want, media that lies on a regular basis - and has those lies regularly accepted as truth - is a greater threat to our country than putin could ever be...

truthfully, I first heard it from a GOP spokesperson being interviewed on NPR.
He said it was traditionally an area that GOP wins by 20 pts plus and this was by 1...something like that.
He said GOP workers were worried, it wasn't Libs celebrating.

Butt then I checked in here and got the straight poop.

Yeah.... I understand the fatigue with the news stations claiming victory in a defeat... But I'm not sure I would call it a "lie"... Just irrelevant.

If a sportsball team which usually beats a specific opponent by 20 points only beats it by 1 point... You would likely call this a sign either one side is getting worse or the other better....

But... They still lost... So it's kind of irrelevant in the short term.

It is also very normal. The party that wins the presidency usually does poorly in the mid terms. We will know how the mid terms go when we have the mid terms.
