Despite Sweeping Special Elections, WashPost Sees Bad ‘Sign’ for GOP in 2018


Washington Post journalist Ed O’Keefe on Wednesday attempted to spin away yet another loss for Democrats in a congressional election. Appearing on CBS This Morning, he even insisted that the GOP going four-for-four in congressional races is a potentially bad “sign” for 2018. Talk about fake news. Asked what the implication is of Republican Karen Handel winning in Georgia, O’Keefe offered talking points: “Look, these were all Republican-held seats and Republicans won them, so status quo has been maintained. But the fact that they had to spend tens of millions of dollars to defend them is a sign going into next year.”
