Pres. Trump to Karen Handel: Oh–You’re Welcome.

President Trump is claiming credit for ensuring no Republican won in last night’s CD-6 race.

I suppose it’s a badge of honor that you can cause a ten-point swing in an election. But usually, only, you know, if your party benefits from said change.

Or maybe a loss is a win if you have the right alternative facts.

Hey Ed… Who is president? Okay, that’s right. Not Hillary. It really is fun to watch you liberals nit pick and whine constantly.

“Or maybe a loss is a win if you have the right alternative facts.” The real losers from last night are Dan Moody, Judson Hill and Ossoff for not getting 50%.

The real winners are the guys that duped Dan Moody out of all that money and me for nailing the Ossoff 48% prediction.

I did say that the Perdue team that swindled Moody out of millions should be arrested for elder abuse. It really is sad.

And your prediction on the 48 was spot on. I was calculating a larger republican day of vote that would bring his number down more. Clearly the GOP is going to have to come together. It’s going to be difficult for Ossoff to squeeze 2% more out of the 6th, but it’s possible.

I’m sure they’re already on to their next grift. Lots of “potential governors” out there.

I think the real issue is how many of the R’s voted for “not-Handel” and what they will do now. How much does the Komen/Planned Parenthood flap matter, and in what way?

“How much does the Komen/Planned Parenthood flap matter, and in what way?” It matters absolutely zero to a republican voter. It may actually help her. People who care about that were never going to vote for Karen because they are democrats.

Or not. My (highly educated) conservative mother stopped giving to SGK For the Cure after they cut funding for PP. She now gives to NARAL, PP, and Stefanie Spielman. It’s possible to be fiscally conservative and in favor of limited government, and still support a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy.

True. .05% of the population will care about that.

Apparently a BIG “R” win is being 28 points behind a complete newcomer; I am not sure if the president read the numbers backwards or is simply delusional. But it was a good night for Jon Ossoff, congratulations to him and his team for all the work they have done.

I was trying to add up all the small percentages from all the Dems to see if that got over 50%. Not enough, though, especially if you want a comfortable win. They’ll need to get out new voters.

Okay, w/r/t this headline, I cannot be the only person here who saw Moana, can I?

Okay replying to myself to say that if Trump is Maui, and Handel is Moana, WATCH OUT KAREN HE WILL TOTALLY STEAL YOUR BOAT.

With a few hours of sleep, some observations on the 6th CD special: (1) It was a record turnout for a special congressional election in Georgia—some 192,000 votes cast—closer to what you might expect in an off-year turnout (years in which the governor was elected)—more than triple the 52,000 who showed up in 2010 for the state’s last special congressional, the 9th CD race to replace Nathan Deal. Ossoff’s 92,000-odd votes also was a record (for a candidate) for a special congressional in this state. (2) Ossoff got more votes in the 6th District than any other Democrat did there… Read more »

On (7), I wonder how many in Hill’s former Senate district remember how he fought to prevent them from even being able to vote on Sunday sales?

Observations appreciated. Looking forward to more analysis later in the campaign.

Oh…and number (8) from yesterday: To the 13 candidates who each spent $5,200 or so on the ballot (for the 6th CD contest) and collectively got 4 percent of the vote—what were you thinking? Did any of you really believe you could win a runoff spot without spending a dime (or at the very least, very little at all) in network TV ads?
