The Republican National Committee (RNC) released an ad on Wednesday trolling the Democratic Party after the Democrats lost another special election, reminding them that “winning is winning” and moral victories don’t count.
The ad, first reported by The Daily Wire, comes a day after Donald Trump-endorsed Republican Troy Balderson appears to have won a tight race in Ohio’s 12th congressional district against Democrat Danny O’Connor. The race has not been officially called since the margin is only 1,564 votes.

The RNC mobilized over 800 volunteers and spent $650,000 to reach out to one million voter contacts for the special election.
The ad features multiple clips from left-wing news organizations complaining that a moral victory isn’t going to help Democrats get any power back in Washington, D.C. this November.
The ad ends with a clip from “The Fast And The Furious” in which, after a close race, actor Vin Diesel says, “It doesn’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning’s winning.”
The final frame in the clip states: “Moral Victories Don’t Get A Vote In Congress.”
