All quotes about Democratic Party

John Osborne

Politics has become such a dark part of American culture lately. It sucks for everybody, whether you're Republican, Democrat or in the middle. Everyone is just pissed off. And we are too. But we wanted to make people laugh.feedback

Michael Saitano

Pelosi, who also doesn't support single payer health care, focused her speech at the California Democratic Party Convention on Russia as well.feedback

Theresa May

We saw that when people here in Wrexham and across Wales chose to ignore the hysterical warnings of Labour, Plaid Cymru and Liberal Democrat politicians in Cardiff Bay, and voted to leave the EU. We see it now in the way those same politicians refuse to respect that vote as they try to find new ways to put obstacles in our way. And the cause of that emerging gulf is clear. It is because the Labour Party has taken people in Wales for granted for decades - just as it has in other communities across Britain.feedback

Corry Bliss

He started at zero, and today he's negative 15. If Rob Quist was running next year, if he was one of just 435 candidates, I don't think they'd let him past the lobby of the DNC.feedback

Philip D. Murphy

We don't have enough examples of this as a Democratic Party around the country, that you can be both progressive, proudly so, and responsible, fiscally responsible. That's the place we're trying to get to.feedback

Theresa May

The prospect of him walking through the door of Number 10, flanked by John McDonnell and Diane Abbott and propped up by the Liberal Democrat and nationalist parties, should scare us all. And make no mistake, it could happen. The cold hard fact is that if I lose just six seats I will lose this election, and Jeremy Corbyn will be sitting down to negotiate with the presidents, prime ministers and chancellors of Europe. Yet with his manifesto this week, he has demonstrated that he is simply not up to the job of leading Britain through the critical years ahead.feedback

Brian Fallon

Trump is pretending the Russians aren't behind DNC hack, but his former top adviser just agreed they are.feedback

Nina Totenberg - NPR

The problem is that even if I were in charge of picking the new FBI director, I would be making my recommendation to the current president, and anybody I would want–Republican or Democrat–wouldn't take the job.feedback

Ed Rendell

You can say that Bob Casey is doing this at some political risk to himself. He always was a Democrat who ran well with moderates and even some reasonable conservatives. Is he throwing that away by being so vocal and emphatic on these issues? Well, maybe so.feedback

Patrick Leahy

This is not a Republican or Democrat idea, this is a common sense idea.feedback

Mark W. Warner

I think there are an awful lot of members on both sides of the aisle that want to know what he knew. I don't think I know any member that I've talked to, publicly or privately, Democrat or Republican, that doesn't think Jim Comey doesn't deserve a chance to tell his side of the story.feedback

Kevin McCarthy

There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump. I'll guarantee you that's what it is...The Russians hacked the DNC and got the opp [opposition] research that they had on Trump. There's... there's two people, I think, Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump. Swear to God.feedback

Ed Butowsky

I'm not involved with any of what you said. This can't possibly go well. I didn't pay anybody. I didn't hire anybody.feedback

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risks. As a 27-year-old, works for the DNC, was shot in the back, murdered just a few weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington. Because we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States. Our sources face serious risks. That's why they come to us. So we can protect their anonymity.feedback

Walter Dellinger

The single best way to maintain the essential credibility of federal law enforcement would be for President Trump to name a Democrat to run the FBI. There is a rich tradition of hiring someone from the opposition party. Democrat Jimmy Carter named Republican Judge William H. Webster to head the bureau in 1978. In the [].feedback

Donald J. Trump

While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election. That's something that Nazi Germany would have done and did do.feedback

Harriet Zoller

We've always been here. There's just never been a reason to come together. We've never had a Democrat that could win.feedback

Jamelle Bouie - Slate

As Donald Trump begins his attack on voting, the Democratic Party should make voting rights its rallying cry, a first-order priority for any Democrat that wins office. More than a potential advantage for the party, it's simply the right thing to do, a statement of belief in a democracy that, at this stage, needs all the help it can get.feedback

Alistair Carmichael

Instead of spying on the entire population's web histories and undermining the encryption that, for example, allows us to bank online safely, Liberal Democrats would put money back into community policing and concentrate on intelligence-led, targeted surveillance. A Conservative landslide would give Theresa May a blank cheque to implement these draconian spying powers and Labour have shown they are incapable of opposing them. A strong Liberal Democrat opposition is crucial to challenge this government, stand up for people's civil liberties and change Britain's future.feedback

Stacey Abrams

A Democrat wins an election in Georgia by speaking truth to power.feedback

William J. Howell

The clerk's actions were consistent with past practice under both Republican and Democrat speakers with both Republican and Democrat governors over the past 21 years. The (state) Supreme Court is abundantly clear about the limits of the governor's line-item veto authority and there is no doubt Governor McAuliffe exceeded that authority.feedback

Mark W. Warner

Frankly, I'm offended at the president's comments. This is a continuing pattern of disrespecting the men and women who serve in our intelligence community.feedback

Tim Farron

Labour should match this [Liberal Democrat pledge], this is a challenge to other parties and particularly to the government. I think we need a strong opposition and you only get that with a clear alternative – this is our clear alternative. I don't want us to be the kind of country who turns our back on those in desperate need. This is about Britain doing its fair share, it's not about taking all of the burden. I had met Syrian refugees in Cologne, welcomed into a civilized country which had the desire to do the right thing.feedback

Doug Wilder

Looking back on it, I am the only Democrat who said he wouldn't raise taxes and kept his word.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

I think that Director Comey has shown over the last several months and, frankly, the last year, a lot of missteps and mistakes. As you've seen from many of the comments from Democrat members . . . they thought he should be gone. Frankly, I think it's startling that Democrats aren't celebrating this, since they've been calling for it for so long.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Look he's a show boat, he's a grand stander, the FBI has been in turmoil. You know that, I know that. Everybody knows that. You take a look at the FBI a year ago, it was in virtual turmoil, less than a year ago, it hasn't recovered from that. Russia must be laughing up their sleeves watching as the U.S. tears itself apart over a Democrat EXCUSE for losing the election. I actually asked him. I said, If it's possible, would you let me know am I under investigation?' (Comey) said, You are not under investigation.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Comey lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike. When things calm down, they will be thanking me! Dems have been complaining for months & months about Dir. Comey. Now that he has been fired they PRETEND to be aggrieved. Phony hypocrites!feedback

Donald J. Trump

Comey lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike. When things calm down, they will be thanking me. The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad! We want to see the killing, the horrible killing, stopped in Syria as soon as possible and everyone is working toward that end.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad! James Comey will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the FBI. Comey lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike. When things calm down, they will be thanking me!feedback

Mitch McConnell

Comey lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike. When things calm down, they will be thanking me!feedback

Lawrence Douglas

The Russians need no longer expend their energies trying to subvert the integrity of our political system. Now they have the US president to do that job. A brazen attack on the rule of law. There is no other way to describe President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey. Recalling the dismissal of Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox, Senator Bob Casey, Democrat of Pennsylvania, rightly called the act “Nixonian.” But it is more than that.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. … Whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right? That's terrific if your baby's health problems are all solved during that one visit. The only problem is that never, ever happens. We've had a dozen doctor's appointments since our son had surgery. I can think of a way to pay for it. Don't give a huge tax cut to millionaires like me.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. I think that's something, whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that. I would like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care. It was insensitive. It was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.feedback

Bill Cassidy

If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. I think that's something that, whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right? Jimmy talked about his son being rushed over to have surgery. Now, I take that as a metaphor. Is your policy adequate? Of course, you can cut premiums if you do what sometimes happened under Obamacare – people got a so-called skinny policy.feedback

Antonio Sabato Jr.

It is refreshing to have a candidate like Trump who is so honest about his feelings because he speaks for many of us when he says we are in a bad place. I have never been a Republican or Democrat. I am an American.feedback

John Whitbeck

I don't think there's any singular issue in all of American politics that has done more damage to the electoral success of the Democratic Party than Obamacare. I hope he continues to campaign on Obamacare, and he'll lose two elections.feedback

Warren Buffett - Berkshire Hathaway

It's not a question of being in the market. It's a question of owning businesses. If I wanted to own farms, I wouldn't be buying and selling them based on an election. I wouldn't try to figure that sort of thing out. I can't think of what I really (would) have done much about purchases or sales in any election. When I was a kid, every time a Democrat got elected ... there was a wake in our house, and my father would start storing sugar in the basement. So, I've learned to not put too much weight in any given election.feedback

Joe Manchin

I just want to work and sit down and try to get something done, but no one's asked us. Our congressional delegation says, don't worry, the Senate will fix it.' And no one has asked any Democrat. And I am the most centrist.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

This is the Democratic Party, this is not a rubber stamp party. This is a party of great diversity.feedback

Corbin Trent

If the Democratic Party brand is toxic, maybe they should rethink their brand. The party needs to be more responsive to the needs of American people who feel that the party has turned its back on them.feedback

Chuck Schumer

This is a good day, and it's a bipartisan day, so I'm not going to get into finger pointing. It was a bipartisan negotiation as I said. The leaders – Democrat, Republican, House and Senate – work well together. And why ruin that?feedback

Martin Kettle

The party is bubbling with optimism, but after its 2015 wipeout it’s not about to overturn the status quo in this election. There is a gaping Emmanuel Macron-shaped hole in British electoral politics, but no one to fill it. When I wrote this recently, I got a cheerfully indignant email from a Liberal Democrat ex-MP. How could I dismiss Tim Farron’s claims so easily, he complained. Like Macron, he said, Farron was young, liberal, progressive and pro-Europe. And in this general election Farron is campaigning on Brexit, “the overriding national and international issue” of the day, “rather than on mending pavements and saving post offices”. Watch this space, he wrote.feedback

Sean Spicer

We share that concern for the Kimmel's child as well as any child that needs care and that's frankly why the president fought so hard to improve the bill like he did this morning to make sure there's that extra layer of protection for anyone with a preexisting conditions, no matter their stage in life. That's why we're fighting so hard for this. But most importantly, I think in the end of Jimmy Kimmel's monologue, he said we need some of these things that aren't Republican or Democrat, that are American policies, and I think that's what the president is fighting for right now.feedback

Bob Corker

I would say [only] tweet out those direct, honest things that help move policy ahead. I do think that these little interjections are harmful to him. Words matter. They affect people out on the battleground. It's not really working yet for them. All of us as a country whether you're Republican or Democrat should want him to succeed.feedback

Thomas Perriello

I'm the only person in this race that's been a Democrat my whole life. I voted for Democratic presidential candidates. I devoted my life for three years to trying to defeat George Bush's agenda while Ralph Northam was voting for him twice. But I want to be absolutely clear that the credit in these fights belong to you and those activists who work day in and day out to fight these laws. I want to be a partner in these fights. We could all benefit from a de-escalation from Twitter.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

If your baby is going to die and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't have to matter how much money you make. Whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right? We need to make sure the people who are supposed to represent us understand that. This isn't football, there are no teams. We are the team. It is the United States. We need to take care of each other. No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child's life. It shouldn't happen. Not here.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

It's a terrifying thing. I'm uh-- you know, my wife is back in the recovery room, she has no idea what's going on, and I'm standing in the middle of a room of very worried looking people -- kind of like right now -- who are trying to figure out what the problem is. If your baby is going to die, and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. I think that's something that whether you're a Republican or Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right? I mean, we do.feedback

Joe Crowley

Where I have concerns is when you reach out to dictators like Duterte. ... What kind of meeting is he hoping to have? Are they both going to go on the back of a motorcycle with M-16s and go for a joyride? I mean, this man has actually shot people in extrajudicial killings himself. ... And somehow we're going to invite him to the White House? That's not the American way.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

Trump last month proposed a six billion dollar cut in funding to the National Institute of Health. If your baby is going to die, and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. I think that's something that, whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that, right? This isn't football. There are no teams. We are the team, it's the United States. Don't let their partisan squabbles divide us on something every decent person wants. We need to take care of each other.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

Until a few years ago, millions and millions of us had no access to health insurance at all. Before 2014, if you were born with a congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you would never be able to get health insurance because you had a preexisting condition. If your parents didn't have medical insurance, you might not even live long enough to get denied because of a preexisting condition. If your baby is going to die, and it doesn't have to, it shouldn't matter how much money you make. Whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or something else, we all agree on that.feedback

Heidi Heitkamp

I think that for too long the Democratic Party has been branded by the views of the coasts. Jon doesn't just represent Montana, but all of rural America.feedback

Jon Tester

If Sharla and I don't do it. It won't get done. I've never done anything to him. And because I'm a Democrat he hates me with a passion. This is going to sound really crude. But I lost my fingers in a meat grinder. You know who I was cutting meat for?feedback

Rafael Behr

Far from being in the grip of post-EU referendum anti-establishment rage, voters are actually put off by leaders whose policies appear too radical. There have been so many dizzying gyrations in politics that it is easy to lose all sense of orientation. Episodes from the recent past already feel remote, given the way ground has shifted beneath our feet, as if they took place in some distant realm. Cleggmania, for instance. Yes, it really did come to pass in 2010 that a Liberal Democrat leader wowed the audience in a televised election debate. Yes, that party did then soar in opinion polls. The effect was not sustained, but it was potent enough to eclipse the fresh-faced shine that David Cameron had hoped to radiate through the campaign. It propelled Nick Clegg into government.feedback

Theresa May

I am determined not to allow parties like the Liberal Democrats to prosper, because it is in their interests to prop up a Corbyn coalition of chaos so that the Brexit process stalls and they can reopen the battles of the past. Wherever it says Labour or Liberal Democrat on the ballot, it's a weak, nonsensical Jeremy Corbyn that gets the vote. At the last election, voters here in the south-west were the difference between a strong, majority government and a weak, unstable coalition of Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the SNP.feedback

Jim Justice

But I just feel like that today the common, everyday guy is really hurting, and he needs a voice.feedback

Stephen Skinner

I would say the Democratic Party in West Virginia is in disarray. Justice has appeared, at this moment in time, to jump into the kind of vacuum.feedback

Micah Weglinski

I'm not sure I know what it means to be a Democrat at this time. He's probably the best thing that we could hope for.feedback

Josh Sword - AFL-CIO

Democrats in West Virginia need to create their own identity, much like what Jim Justice is doing.feedback

Simon F. Haeder

It's trying to protect education, trying to protect health care, but at the same time, largely anti-environment, and you're doing tax cuts, changes. He's in a tough spot. It's a shifting state; he's an unusual Democrat.feedback

Jay Justice

You've got hopelessness. And you've got a drug epidemic. And you've got a $500 million hole in the bucket. What are you gonna do?feedback

Mitch Carmichael

He did an absolute U-turn. I think he's more Republican in his philosophies. Where he has gotten away from that a little bit is his tax-and-spend policies.feedback

James Thompson

It's Hillary people blaming Bernie supporters, and Bernie supporters blaming Hillary. It's just like, ugh, for the love of God. This is why we're not winning.feedback

Frances Jackson

People say to me, Oh, I can't run for office,' . So I put both my hands on both their cheeks and I say: 'Do you see who is president? Anybody can run for office.feedback

Tim Farron

But I'm somebody who believes that Britain is better off in the European Union and what the South West is famous for is wanting to be able to be self-governing, to be independent, to be different from those in Westminster who tell them what to do. And the worst thing for the West Country is to be a blanket of blue where the Tories just take you for granted. And that's the thing I think people around the country are beginning to realise. That a Conservative majority is now not in question, but a Conservative landslide means they will take you for granted wherever you live.feedback

Bernie Sanders

If there are places in this country where somebody wants to run as an independent, go for it. But right now, what's absolutely imperative is that the Democratic Party be completely reformed.feedback

Donna Campos

My heart belongs to the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. Close enough. He'll do. But that's why were here.feedback

Jim Himes

Congress should unite behind a national infrastructure program and a tax-code overhaul.feedback

Nick Cohen

The controversy over the Liberal Democrat leader’s stance on homosexuality has exposed fissures on belief and tolerance. Liberalism does not only fail to satisfy the new conservatives who are storming to power across the west. It fails to satisfy many who call themselves “liberal”. It is simultaneously too hard and too soft an ideology to bear. It demands tolerance. But we do not want to be tolerated as if we were poor relations. We want respect, approval and freedom from criticism and insult. In our wilder moments, we want, in our vanity, to be loved.feedback

Ilyse Hogue

If Democrats think the path forward following the 2016 election is to support candidates who substitute their own judgment and ideology for that of their female constituents, they have learned all the wrong lessons and are bound to lose. Kudos to Chair Tom Perez and the DNC for recognizing that we are a stronger party when we stand for our core values.feedback

Andrew Baumann - Global Strategy Group

In the long term, the future for the Democratic Party is Florida, Arizona, Georgia, eventually Texas ... and maybe Ohio goes the other way [toward Republicans]. But given the map for 2018, and even 2020, I think relying on just that and not fighting in those Midwest states is a mistake.feedback

Thomas E. Perez

If you demand fealty on every single issue, then it's a challenge. Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman's right to make her own choices about her body and her health.feedback

Kristen Day - Democrats for Life of America

The Democratic Party has to look in the mirror and say, where did we go wrong? What do we need to do to start winning again? This is one of those issues where the party could expand its coalition. I do have some optimism. The fact that we're having this discussion at all is important, and potentially an opportunity to create space for pro-life Democrats within the party, but so far it doesn't seem like that's the direction the party will take.feedback

Erin Matson

It's about policy, not feelings or labels, and anything less than a bold stance that makes clear that the Democratic Party must be united in protecting a woman's right to an abortion is a betrayal of a core constituency of the party.feedback

Ilyse Hogue

Women across the country … are breathing a sigh of relief to know that the DNC has our backs.feedback

Pete Olson

Yucca Mountain is a 20-year story of raw politics, state versus state, Republican versus Republican, Democrat versus Democrat.feedback

Alan Krueger - Council of Economic Advisers

I'm not the first to observe that a Republican Congress only cares about the deficit when a Democrat is in the White House. It may be that Dick Cheney is right and that deficits don't matter to the public, but they do matter to the economy.feedback

Mitch McConnell

I think it's pretty clear we're going to have to use a reconciliation vehicle because today's Democratic party is very different from the Democratic party in the 80s. I can tell you my preference is that we treat businesses of all types similarly. Most businesses are not corporations.feedback

Mitch McConnell

Today's Democratic Party seem to me to be pretty occupied with wealth transfer from those who have done well to those who have done less well. No matter how you feel about that, that's unrelated to having a set of tax laws that promote growth. And as others were saying here, we're in a slog here.feedback

John Whitbeck

There's not a single Democrat candidate no matter how much money they spend who can beat Barbara Comstock. It's not going to happen.feedback

Feike Hacquebord

We have seen that phishing sites were set up and the fingerprints were really the same actors as in the DNC breach. These kinds of attacks are quite dangerous. Credential phishing is probably a very good way to try and compromise a political party.feedback

Alex Maldgen

It was at the last minute that I had a look at their programmes and Fillon's corresponded more to the structure of what I was hoping for, but Macron's doesn't bother me, he is more a social-democrat and that works for me.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

We know there are a lot of people on the Hill, especially in the Democratic Party, who don't like the wall, but they lost the election. And the president should, I think, at least have the opportunity to fund one of his highest priorities in the first funding bill under his administration. We'll negotiate with the Democrats. The negotiations are not finished yet. We think we have given them a reasonable set of choices that they want in exchange for what we want.feedback

Larry Hogan Jr.

While the travesties of Watergate were perpetrated outside the regular channels of Republican Party organizations, they were all committed by Republicans for the benefit of a Republican president. Do we want to be the party loyalists who in ringing rhetoric condemn the wrongdoings and scandals of the Democratic Party and excuse them when they are done by Republicans?feedback

Jon Karl - ABC News

The Clintons have dominated Democratic party politics for so long and she's the next Clinton that could run. If she actually did run, she would have instant access to a fundraising network, there's no question. She would have instant name recognition.feedback

Tony Dwyer - Canaccord Genuity

Sentiment at the corporate level has dramatically improved following the Democrat loss. Period.feedback

Bernie Sanders

Some Democrats are progressive, and some Democrats are not. If the Democratic Party is going to succeed – and I want to see it succeed – it's gonna have to open its door to independents. There are probably more independents in this country than Democrats or Republicans. It's got to open its doors to working people and to young people, create a grassroots party. That's what we need.feedback

Jane Kleeb

Heath is a strong progressive Democrat, and he is pro-life, and you can be both things. What Heath did actually was stop a bill to make ultrasounds mandatory by getting Republicans in our legislature to agree to make them voluntary.feedback

Thomas E. Perez

If we have a one-size-fits-all requirement for every Democrat who seeks office, that's a formula for a filibuster-proof majorities in the Senate; that's a formula for failure in many areas of this country.feedback

Jane Kleeb

He is pro-life. A lot of Dems are pro-life. That is a reality that I share. I was pro-life until 2004 – I mean, my mom was president of Broward County Right to Life. Does that mean that I'm not a Democrat, that I'm not a progressive?feedback

Bernie Sanders

If this fellow wins in Nebraska, that would be a shot across the board, that in a state like Nebraska a progressive Democrat can win, that will give hope to folks in other conservative states that perhaps they can win as well.feedback

Bernie Sanders

We need to transform the Democratic Party. We need to open the doors of the Democratic Party to working people and to young people. Our job is to take on the moneyed interests. And the only way I know as to how we do that is by bringing millions of people into the political process, with a newborn understanding that we have got to get involved.feedback

Jennifer Wexton

The grassroots energy is so inspiring. I'm seeing all these people who are resisting and persisting and doing what they can to hold their representatives accountable. And this is something I can do. I can help by helping to hold Barbara Comstock accountable. Closely controlled, scripted town halls don't count. This year people are actually paying attention. People can see when she's paying lip service to issues but how she's really voting when it counts.feedback

Mike Quigley

All I can say is, it's very important to understand how the Russians launder money. Just look at the public reports – the key Russian and American figures all played in Cyprus.feedback

Thomas E. Perez

Our values are aligned on so many of the critical issues that confront the nation and the Democratic Party. When people actually look at the platform of the Democratic Party – they'll say, we need community college!' – well, look at the platform. When they say, We need a $15 minimum wage' – look at the platform.feedback

Bernie Sanders

We'd have a rally with five or ten thousand young people out, a great deal of energy. Our job is to radically transform the Democratic Party into a 50-state party.feedback

Thomas E. Perez

I live in the people's republic of Takoma Park. If you demand fealty on every single issue, then it's a challenge. The Democratic Party platform acknowledges that we're pro-choice; but there are communities, like some in Kansas, where people have a different position.feedback

Josh Kraushaar - National Journal

Republicans were able to use their traditional playbook (to force a runoff), painting Ossoff as a down-the-line liberal to stunt his momentum. If that strategy works in the midterms, they'll be well-positioned to hold their House majority. Democrats need to win these types of diverse, affluent Republican districts to regain control of the lower chamber. … All told, it doesn't look as if many typical Republican voters -- even those who don't care for Trump -- were inclined to vote for a Democrat to send a message….feedback

Sarah Posner

Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said today that the Committee’s investigation of Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign collusion with it is “back on track” after its controversial chairman, California Republican Devin Nunes, recused himself from the probe. Schiff’s remarks are a hopeful sign that the Committee will finally be able to constructively take on its oversight role.feedback

John Whitbeck

After voters blew up their narrative in Georgia and Kansas, we are not surprised Democrats are grasping at straws. There's nothing we can do about Democrat enthusiasm. Republicans don't control that. What we can control is turning out Republican voters in a race that's really do or die.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Just learned that Jon (at)Ossoff, who is running for Congress in Georgia, doesn't even live in the district. Republicans, get out and vote! Despite Trump's Twitter barrage, the White House insisted the race isn't about the president.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Democrat Jon Ossoff would be a disaster in Congress. VERY weak on crime and illegal immigration, bad for jobs and wants higher taxes. Say NO. Republicans must get out today and VOTE in Georgia 6. Force runoff and easy win! Dem Ossoff will raise your taxes-very bad on crime & 2nd A.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Liberal Democrats from outside of Georgia are spending millions of dollars trying to take your Republican Congressional seat away from you. Don't let them do it. Despite major outside money, FAKE media support and eleven Republican candidates, BIG 'R' win with runoff in Georgia. Glad to be of help!feedback

Donald J. Trump

The super Liberal Democrat in the Georgia Congressioal [sic] race tomorrow wants to protect criminals, allow illegal immigration and raise taxes! Democrat Jon Ossoff would be a disaster in Congress, VERY weak on crime and illegal immigration, bad for jobs and wants higher taxes. Say NO. With eleven Republican candidates running in Georgia (on Tuesday) for Congress, a runoff will be a win. Vote 'R' for lower taxes & safety! Republicans must get out today and VOTE in Georgia 6. Force runoff and easy win! Dem Ossoff will raise your taxes-very bad on crime & 2nd A.feedback

David Daley

It's entirely possible that in a special election, and having raised that kind of money, that a Democrat could sneak away and win this race in a district where Trump has always had trouble. The district lines present a serious and significant structural problem, and Democrats could spend $8.3 million on this race and [even if they win] turn around and hand the district back to Republicans in 2018. And if so, what have they invested all that money in?feedback

This was a gut-wrenching time for Hillary, pitting her abiding sense of loyalty – the value she held above all others – against her own self-interest and the fates of the Democratic Party and the nation.feedback

Alyssa Milano

It is the seat heard round the world. Everyone is watching. All the recent special elections have taken on a certain symbolism of the resistance. We've now seen what a Trump presidency looks like and how his policies negatively affect every facet of our beautiful country. Supporting Ossoff is a clear message to the GOP that we don't like the direction Trump is taking this country in, and we will continue to elect more people that will hold Trump and the entire GOP accountable for their policies. I hope we can take this momentum in the 2018 elections.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The super Liberal Democrat in the Georgia Congressioal (sic) race tomorrow wants to protect criminals, allow illegal immigration and raise taxes! The recent Kansas election (Congress) was a really big media event, until the Republicans won. Now they play the same game with Georgia-BAD!feedback

David Bright

The DNC has dropped the ball on one congressional campaign after another. The only way Perez would be safe to come to Maine is to have Bernie by his side. Otherwise, progressives in this state would tear him apart.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Tuesday’s contest in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to fill the seat of now-Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has gotten the president’s attention. He tweeted, “The super Liberal Democrat in the Georgia Congressioal [sic] race tomorrow wants to protect criminals, allow illegal immigration and raise taxes!” However unintentionally, this line of crude attack may well remind many upscale Republican and Democratic voters in this district why they dislike President Trump. He barely carried the district, running almost points behind Price in November. (NBC News finds: “Tom Price got 62% of the vote in this highly educated and affluent Atlanta-area district in 2016, and Mitt Romney took 61% in 2012. But Trump barely beat Hillary Clinton here in 2016, 48%-47%.”).feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Given the suppression of the 'no' campaign, the fact that much of the [pro-Kurdish] Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) leadership is in jail, and that the government's effective control of the media ensured a massive imbalance in campaign coverage, the 'no' campaign did very well. For Erdogan, a narrow win is still a win. He is unlikely to either slow his consolidation of power or reach out in meaningful ways to the opposition. He promised a 'yes' vote would result in more stability and a return of economic growth. I suspect that neither of these things is true.feedback

Karen Handel

Republican voters are not going to sit by and let this district go to a Democrat.feedback

John McCain

I don't think so, but I wouldn't rule it out. But at the same time, they have made steady progress while we have made agreement after agreement after agreement. Chuck, how many times on this show have they said 'oh, we have now a comprehensive agreement with North Korea?'. And so I'm not blaming Trump for this. I'm blaming Republican and Democrat presidents over the last 20 years while they continue to make progress.feedback

Need further proof that the fix was in from Pres. Obama on down? BUSTED: 19,252 Emails from DNC Leaked by WikiLeaks. They cling to this fiction, even though their disclosures often inflict irreparable harm. It's time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a nonstate hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia. Russian military intelligence, the GRU, had used WikiLeaks to release data of U.S. victims that the GRU had obtained through cyberoperations against the Democratic National Committee. No one has the right to engage in the theft of secrets from America.feedback

Mike Pompeo

While we do our best to quietly collect information on those who possess very real threats to our country, individuals like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden seek to use that information to make a name for themselves. As long as they make a splash, they care nothing about the lives they put at risk or the damage they cause to national security. Need further proof that the fix was in from Pres. Obama on down? BUSTED: 19,252 Emails from DNC Leaked by Wikileaks.feedback

Sam Nunberg

From a pure political perspective, I do not know if the White House appreciates how Gary Cohn is a liability with the Republican and conservative base, as well as the Republican Congress. The Trump White House will always be held in suspicion when you have someone who's consolidated full economic power in the White House who is also a liberal, New York Democrat.feedback

Michael Altman

He doesn't have a chance in hell, it's just not going to happen. There's more signs, and more advertisements, than I've ever seen for a Democrat running around here. I don't think he has that much grassroots support in the district. I think it's just smoke and mirrors.feedback

Jeff Kazanow

Democrats were happy, we had nothing to complain about in 2012 when Obama was in office. Now, we all feel like we have to do whatever we can to minimize the damage Trump could do to this country. This race is a way to try to get someone with progressive values into Congress. But if a Democrat wins it would also send a message to Trump and the Republican Party that they can lose seats they thought were safe because of the outrage he has created.feedback

John G. Roberts Jr.

The new justice is not a Republican, not a Democrat, he is a member of the Supreme Court. But it is hard for people to understand that when they see the process that leads up to it. We might end up talking like they do in Congress. As it turns out, there are very few.feedback

The answer is not going to be to blame black and brown people and scapegoat any other group as Trump is going to try to do and has done. It's going to be about being honest to take on concentrations of power and wealth. I don't expect you to trust me for the first time. But I want it to be a work in progress.feedback

Running for chair, Tom said that his views were not substantially different than Keith Ellison's, who I strongly supported. I'm sorry he did not win. But during that campaign, Tom said that the Democratic Party had to be refocused, had to be rebuilt, and I trust that he will keep those promises. The fact that he's prepared to travel with me around the country and pick up half the cost of this is a positive sign.feedback

It is a remarkably big switch from October. If you are a Democrat, you are primed for negativity. It carries through in your view of everything else. I'd bet there will be some minor convergence, but there will still be a large divergence on what should be a matter of objective reality.feedback

Bernie Sanders

This is part of our effort to revitalize the Democratic Party, to turn it into a grassroots party – to tell people that Donald Trump's agenda is not what he promised them. On issue after issue, he's turned his back on working people and sided with the millionaire class. During that campaign, Tom said that the Democratic Party had to be refocused, had to be rebuilt, and I trust that he will keep those promises. The fact that he's prepared to travel with me around the country and pick up half the cost of this is a positive sign.feedback

It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council. Years of previous attempts at changing Assad's behaviour have all failed and failed very dramatically. Tonight I call on all civilised nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.feedback

Tim Farron

Evil happens when good people do nothing. We cannot stand by, we must act. The attack by American forces was a proportionate response to the barbarous attack by the Syrian government on its own people. The British government rather than just putting out a bland statement welcoming this should now follow it up and call an emergency meeting of the Nato alliance to see what else can be done, be that more surgical strikes or no fly zones. Evil happens when good people do nothing, we cannot sit by while a dictator gasses his own people. We cannot stand by, we must act.feedback

What Trump slapped onto his plate last election was a big juicy steak. Real or not – that's what it looked like to the hungry working voter.

After meeting with Judge Gorsuch, conducting a thorough review of his record, and closely following his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I believe that he is a qualified jurist who will base his decisions on his understanding of the law and is well-respected among his peers. I was deeply disappointed by the way the most recent Supreme Court nominee, Judge Garland, was treated by the Senate, but as Senator, I can only vote on the nominee that comes to the Senate floor. However, I believe that we should keep the current 60-vote threshold for Supreme Court nominees.feedback

The Republican chairman and ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Richard Burr and Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), provided a rare example of sanity, bipartisanship and competence this past week. Refusing to go down the partisan road that paralyzed the House Intelligence Committee, Burr and Warner insisted that the Senate could perform its oversight function - and then proceeded to hold one of the most informative and nonpartisan hearings in recent memory.feedback

Joe Manchin

He's been portrayed as not being for the working person. The Democrats became so politically correct and so perfect. The people in there, they grew up knowing that the Democratic Party would be there ensuring their jobs. And now it's the party they believe is preventing them from working. For me to be a Republican, I would have to put the bottom line before I would a human being. How long did it take them to bail out Wall Street? It took 'em hours. Can't you take care of the people who basically made the country? I really appreciate you coming here.feedback

We need a Democratic party that is not a party of the liberal elite but of the working class of this country, we need a party that is a grassroots party, where candidates are talking to working people not spending their time raising money for the wealthy and the powerful.

Ed Rogers

The Post’s John Wagner, Mike DeBonis and Robert Costa had a story yesterday entitled, “Trump threatens hard-liners as part of escalating Republican civil war.” It made me wonder: Why has the president himself had to take the point in the fight against inter-party opposition? Not that anyone can control the president’s tweets, but where has the Republican National Committee’s new chair, Ronna Romney McDaniel, been? I was often critical of former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, but President Barack Obama knew he could rely on support from the DNC when times got tough. Even if Wasserman Schultz’s support was counterproductive at times, at least it was there. I give the now-exiled DNC chair her due. So where is the RNC?feedback

The Democratic Party today, programmatically, in terms of how it does business, has failed. Perez has got to capitalize that and that's the kind of party the Democrats have to create. I was elected in Vermont as an Independent. But let me just say this, the Democrats will not succeed unless it attracts many, many millions of Independents. The number of people who are now moving in the Independent direction as opposed to Republican or Democratic, it is growing. So if the Democrats are going to be successful, in fact that party is going to have to appeal to a whole lot of Independents.feedback

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major overhaul of the party's organization, which has been stung by recent crises – and the DNC has requested resignation letters from all current staffers. Party staff routinely see major turnover with a new boss and they had been alerted to expect such a move.

Staffing had already reached unusual lows following a round of post-election layoffs in December.feedback

The Democrats are giddy about Republicans’ failed attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare. They and their allies in the media hope to fake Republicans into believing that they can recruit the party’s less radical members to support a few key pieces of legislation. But the new-Left’s objective is not to reward Democrats for working with Republicans. Their goal is to resist. And the quickest way for a Democrat to be challenged in a primary is if they are labeled a Trump Democrat - a collaborator. The new-Left’s unyielding resistance will not quit and nothing is going to get easier for Republicans.feedback
