Wait for actual competitive races, and we will see how it goes. The swings in the results do not bode well for Republicans.
lol I knew it would come to this. Theyll say they did good in a republication stronghold as a method of backpedaling.
the amount they spent their goal was to win and they LOST.

I think thats 5-0 so far since Trump got in, yes?

She hates gays, supports destroying healthcare, opposes people actually having a living wage, and rejects climate change.

She, like almost all Republicans, is an evil woman. But that's what Republican voters like. They hate Republican policies, but continue to elect people that destroy their lives year after year.

This country will never survive when most states are dominated by morons.

And look how much money was required to do that.

In total, his campaign raked in $15 million from March 29 to May 31, for a total of over $23 million — a haul that has made this the most expensive House race in U.S. history.


Jon Ossoff: more money raised from California than Georgia


If you're going to have to spend $23 Million per seat and still lose, you're not going to do very well.

BTW....Trump won this district by just 1.5%. She has won by about 4-5%. This vote reversed the Trump vote & moved the trend more to the GOP. That's what almost 40 million dollars purchased the democratic party....nothing.

Jon Ossoff: more money raised from California than Georgia

How is this not meddling in the election?


That's no different than foreign influence.



We need to get my Constitutional Amendment enacted:


Only those persons eligible to vote for a candidate or ballot issue may contribute money to a candidate or ballot issue.


Elegantly simple.


Understand that this will not keep pukes like George Soros from contributing money, but it will severely limit and restrict to whom they give money.



This would limit Soros et al to presidential elections, senatorial and gubernatorial elections in the State in which one is legally registered to vote, federal representatives to the federal district in which a voter resides, State legislators in the State district in which one resides, county elections to the county in which one resides and local government to the city or township one resides.


Since people in California cannot legally vote in Georgia, they would be barred from contributing monies.



Note that since corporations, businesses, banks, unions, think-tanks and political action committees cannot vote, they cannot contribute monies to candidates or ballot issues.


It would still allow the fore-going to run television, radio and print ads, but the ads could not be endorsed by the candidate.
Agree 100%.

There, fixed it up a bit



Main street/blue collar workers and mom and pop businesses are sick of it!

The Dems are living in a bubble.

What, you guys are going to vote again to destroy your own lives and continue driving this country into the ground? Have fun with that. Red state voters are the ones who suffer the most under Republican policies, so I'm starting to enjoy watching you guys shoot yourselves in the foot.

I've already settled on the fact that his country is no longer a 1st world leader among nations and becomes a bigger cesspool everyday. Might as well hurry with the collapse and maybe we'll reach Russia status soon.

How is it a historical loss? The seat has been held by a Republican for 40 years. I mean, it's freakin Georgia. Redneck, white trash morons go with the territory.
