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.
Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s sixth district is what happens when Democrats believe their own hype about the power of money in politics.
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.
