Republican Ralph Norman Wins U.S. House Seat in South Carolina, Crushing Defeat for Nancy Pelosi and Democrats

Democrats have to learn, and they won't, that hating President Trump and calling him names doesn't win elections.  
NY Times reports Ralph Norman, a Republican, defeated Archie Parnell, a Democrat, in a South Carolina special election on Tuesday in a U.S. House race. 

Mr. Norman was expected to have an advantage over Mr. Parnell for the seat, which was vacated by Mick Mulvaney, now director of the Office of Management and Budget. However, Mr. Parnell kept the race relatively close, losing by just a few percentage points. 

The race did not receive the same national focus as special elections in Georgia and Montana.
The Fifth District was redrawn to heavily favor Republicans after the 2010 elections. Mr. Mulvaney won his three re-election campaigns easily.
