GOP lawmakers to take seats after special election wins

2 GOP lawmakers to take seats after special election wins

Monday evening's swearing-in ceremony would return Republicans to full strength in the chamber at 241 seats after four special elections to replace lawmakers who left the House to join President Donald Trump's Cabinet. U.S. Rep. -elect Karen Handel, the Republican, linked her Democratic candidate, Joe Ossoff, to Pelosi during the campaign in Atlanta's conservative 6th District on many occasions.

She later added, "T$3 hese people were against me last November". After all, this was the same politician who launched her 2010 gubernatorial run with a pledge to end a Gold Dome culture that she criticized in unsparing terms: "sex, lies and lobbyists". The Georgia representative will be sworn in at the same time as SC special election victor Ralph Norman according to the report. Norman said he was joining the House "at a special time in history".

Handel told Channel 2 Action News that she looks forward to getting to work and "remains humbled by this extraordinary privilege".

Times of Israel: Iran Missile Strike Missed Target
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards, said its military launched missiles into eastern Syria yesterday, targeting ISIS militants. The warplane had dropped bombs near American-backed militia fighters known as the Syrian Democratic Forces, it said.

Democratic lawmakers are revolting against their boss, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.).

The Democratic leader pushed back on the notion that she should step down. I've always had trouble in the caucus from the start. His predecessor, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney helped found the group. Democratic state Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez easily retained the seat for the party in an election earlier this month, and will assume his seat after completing some remaining state business.
