A Republican won a reliably Republican district in reliably red Georgia. Whoop-di-doo.
Karen Handel’s win in a Georgia special election yesterday sparked a flurry of tweets from Democrats seeking to rationalize the loss, bash the new congresswoman, and even blame the weather.
We already know that an electorate can be happy with a president and dislike his party. Why can’t the reverse be true?
Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s special election is a repeat lesson for Democrats. In 2014 they flooded Texas with outsider cash, but Wendy Davis lost in a landslide.
While it’s unlikely that Jon Osoff will win the upcoming runoff election, one thing is clear: Democrats won’t make the same voter turnout mistake twice.
