#GA6 Filing Reports

The FEC shows reports for 13 of the 18 candidates in the GA-6 special election for the period ending March 29, 2017. Approximately $9.63 million was donated by individuals to those campaigns and another $3 million kicked in by the candidates, though $1.92 million was by Dan Moody alone. PACs added an additional $190,522, with almost all of that going to Jon Ossoff, Judson Hill, and Karen Handel. $9.44 million was spent by the campaigns through March 29.

The PDF below shows the information that was available as of last night. I have highlighted the highest in each column, excepting the Other category, with red for Republicans and blue for Democrats.

If elected, So many favors to repay, so little time.

We need an expanded blind trust rule for politicians: put all political contributions into a blind trust to be distributed equally among the candidates and as budgeted to offices.

Maybe then they will focus on issues most of us care about.

Ossoff with over $8.2 million in individual donations? I see Soros is funneling money through those paid protesters and dead California voters again. #sarcasm

Ossof is at 43%. If the other Dem and independent voters go for him in the runoff, that puts him at 48%. So he would need to turn about 2% of those currently polling as R to win the general, or win the turnout battle.

I thought i’ve read in different threads that this is a 60/40 district. Is that precise, or is 42-43% the actual Dem base? Or perhaps, closer to 47-48% seems to be the above suggestion? Or is $8 mil buying/influencing any votes above 42%?

Beth, It’s actually a bit of an open question what the district lean is these days, which is one reason this race has gotten a lot of attention. If you asked that question this time last year, people would have told you, accurately, 60-40 was the Dem best case scenario. Obama got 40% there in 08 but 37.5% in 12. Nunn got 38% and Carter 36% in 14. Nobody who ran against Price got better than 35% (but, to be fair, the people who ran against Price were mostly “Some Dudes” rather than actual well-funded competitors). However, Trump made a… Read more »
