This. There are a lot of Republicans on the ticket, and that will keep any one of them from getting a majority of the votes. Once there is a runoff, then Ossoff will get trounced. Trump only got 51% of the vote here because the voters are fairly well educated, but when it's a regular Republican they will swing back to the right.

I don't see anyone who can beat Handel.

Hopefully not though.
Agreed.


(Typical voter) "It's hard to handicap this field with so many people running, oh well I guess I'll let the polls and the news media tell me who to vote for."

If enough Republican voters assume this is how it will go and wait to see which of their candidates make the runoff, GOP turnout could be low enough for Ossoff to win a majority in the Jungle Primary. GOTV!

I am in the 6th district and there are many Ossoff signs in Tucker. I will definitely be voting for him and I have confirmed that most of my neighbors and friends will be joining me. I am hoping that he wins!!!

I have already voted. I want a candidate who will fight for education. Education has been beaten to a pulp by our leaders, by the media and it has to stop. Our civil liberties and privacy are also under attack.

Can someone please highlight an achievement from Ossoff's professional life that leads you to believe he is a good fit for a leadership position?

As far as I can tell he was a 5 year flunkie for 'Congressman Guam Gunna Tip Over' and he did a video highlighting 'ISIS is bad.'

I'm not saying he won't do a good job, but there is nothing in his very, very thin record that makes me think he is capable of achieving anything.

Then vote at the State and local level. If you are looking to DC for education wins, you don't understand education.

I was getting ready to pose the same question.
All I've seen so far is a candidate whose image and purported resume are being carefully managed by his handlers.

The candidate that supports abolishing the DoE will get my vote.
