Democrats can’t catch a break in the special election they’ve been competing in during the Trump era. From Kansas to Omaha to Georgia, they couldn’t win a single one.

But perhaps they’d turn around their luck in Georgia with John Ossoff, a man who didn’t even reside in the district he was running to represent, and was armed with $22 million in fundraiser money, most of it from California.

The official polls showed a close race between him and Republican Karen Handel, who actually does reside in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District. Right before voters headed off to the polls, President Donald Trump tweeted out in support of Handel.

Aaaaaaaand she crushed him.

Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a closely-watched special House election Tuesday night, the Associated Press projected.

The loss was a disappointing setback for Democrats, who had hoped to capitalize on President Trump’s low approval ratings to win the long-standing Republican seat.

Four House races since Trump’s inauguration have resulted in straight GOP wins. Democrats have proven to be utter failures when it comes to beating Trump. Now they must win 24 GOP seats to retake control of House in 2018.

“This race was going to require all hands on deck, and that’s what we had,” Handel said at her victory party.

Republicans also held onto the House seat in South Carolina vacated by White House budget director Mick Mulvaney. Millionaire developer Ralph Norman, the Republican, defeated former Goldman Sachs tax adviser Archie Parnell, the Democrat, according to the Associated Press. Mulvaney resigned in February to join the Trump administration.

The Georgia race smashed fundraising records for a House contest.  The campaigns for Handel and Ossoff, along with outside groups, spent a record $50 million.
