President Trump is the best thing to happen to Democrats, one analyst says.

Georgia election result makes clear that U.S. House is in play in 2018

On so-called 'unity tour,' Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has not endorsed Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia.

According to Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's latest numbers, there have already been 300 individual candidate recruitment conversations in over 70 districts, a huge number compared to recent cycles. “The Democrats are kind of kids in a candy shop right now,” said Wasserman.

On the congressional level, a few upcoming races may give Republicans a false sense of security. Special elections in the coming months will be held in Montana and South Carolina, places where the Democrats are much less likely to eke out a win. In Kansas last week,  Democrat James Thompson lost to Republican Ron Estes by just 7 points in a district Trump carried in November by 27 points.

“Even if Democrats fall short in all four of the special elections this spring, they could all bode poorly for the Republicans heading into next year” because of the close margins, said Wasserman.
