I never said the Democrats would pick it up. However, Special Elections can be highly unpredictable, combine that with the specifics of the district, how hard it swung against Trump for what is a very traditional GOP seat and it is certainly worth at least paying attention to.

I highly, highly doubt this seat is going to flip. In fact, I doubt it will be less than a ten point GOP win. We will see soon enough.

You could be right, but the last guy to run against Price, didnt even have a campaign and got 40% of the vote.

As I and others have pointed out, part of the problem in 2016 was party and campaign infrastructure.

Cant win a race if no one knows you are running.

I heard this race is extremely close. So republicans are running ads saying he is the puppet of Pelosi. I can't remember exactly what it said. When republicans are scared of losing a seat they bring out the Pelosi card lol

He's black.

This is the same poster that talked about "getting the jungle junk" out of the White House and referred to Michelle Obama as ""Mooch".

Put 2 and 2 together.

It ain't rocket science.

This is an interesting race due to the district's demographics. It's a whiter district than the Georgia state average, but it's also younger and heavily college grad (60%). I don't expect Ossloff to prevail, due to the district's voting history and because in southern districts the white college vote usually tracks closer to the white non-college vote than in the rest of the country, but it will be interesting to see how districts like this respond to the direction in which Donald Trump is taking the Republican Party. If or when we see the election of a southern white Democratic congressman from a predominantly white district again, it will probably be in a district similar to this one.

We saw a glimpse of it in November, it went from Romney +22 to Trump +1.5. The key is will the sharp changes on the Presidential level make it to the Congressional level. It is hard to read at this point, Price did win by 20 points, but it was his smallest margin against an opponent with little $$$ as a well entrenched incumbent.

I live in the 6th and already voted early at our beautiful new library branch.
This district is very white, educated and affluent. Many of us moved here in the last twenty years from colder climates because of corporate transfers or to be near children or grandchildren. It is a wonderful place to live.
I am one of the many praying for change and back Ossoff.
