Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has issued a stinging critique of the Democratic Party, saying this week's GOP victory in Georgia isn't surprising, because Democrats aren't in touch with working Americans.

"Right now, it's hard to find Democratic candidates who've had real life experience in dealing with the government from the perspective of a worker or business owner, because they tend to be Republicans," Huckabee said on his blog.

And in a direct message to Democrats, Huckabee, a two-time GOP presidential candidate, said:

"Democrats, your problem isn't that your message isn't getting through or that Americans are 'voting against their own interests.' They know what you stand for. They got a big load of it during the [Barack ] Obama years (slow job growth, bloated government, skyrocketing debt and insurance premiums, open borders, weak leadership abroad leading to the rise of ISIS and the Middle East on fire, etc, etc.).

"Having you in power may be in your interests, but most non-coastal voters think it sure as heck isn't in theirs. Until the Democrats actually try listening to the American people, rethink their policies and find candidates with life experience outside of politics, they're going to keep losing."

Democrats were stung Tuesday by the loss of Jon Ossoff in Georgia's 6th Congressional District race to Republican Karen Handel — an election considered a referendum on President Donald Trump's leadership.
