FYI-

GA-6 has been a Republican district since Newt Gingrich was first elected in 1978, so it's been in Republican hands for 39 years.

They're really looking for something to point to, so I heard 50mil spent and am wondering if it's 50/50 or 80/20?

Secondly, I have to shake my head at the people crowing about polls and how their candidate is going to win. Didn't you learn anything from the Presidential election? All you're accomplishing with that is to possibly lower your own candidates turnout because "you got it in the bag". This applies to anyone regardless of party or election year.
Final numbers aren't out yet, but it was slightly more than 50% Den. Ossoff's campaign badly outspent Handel, but Handel benefited from far moree super Pac finds.

Sure, I get that. While I have no doubt the Dems will do better in 2018, I don't put a lot of faith into a single race given the specific candidates involved.

Sorry, we're sick of slick, well-spoken empty suits...academics, failed lawyers, career politics, community organizers...
TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP. Of course he is not well-spoken, not a lawyer and doesn't have a clue what's in the Constitution, is a career bully in business, and SLICK for sure. He's clever but not smart.

Many people are really sick of Trump!!

According to msm, if ossoff wins it signals the future of politics, a referendum on Trump.. blah blah.. so what if ossof loses? No speculation of that from a slanted biased msm

Too funny, I wondered the SAME thing. I imagine they will be saying things like "it was closer than people expected and thus can be called a victory." They've done it before.
