This was going to be a mess no matter who won. There was just too much shady shit and too much outside money ( Thank you, Citizens United ). Also, Handel's kind of awful, so I'm not sure she should be held up as a shining beacon of the party.

Plus, this was the most expensive House race in history and supposedly a referendum on Trump and it was still only a 45% voter turn out? ><

It's definitely a republican stronghold, it's the district that elected new gingrich back in the day. It's just that there are many republicans there who have a distaste for Trump. I don't know if his tweet really helped, and it was funny to listen to all the ads here since they really skirted around mentioning Trump. Despite all that outside money, no one that lives here really thought Ossoff would win. To me it says more that the Repubs were so worried about a district they normally would have carried so easily.

Elections outside of the normal cycle are pretty special and anything can happen with them due to lower/higher turnout. However Republicans weren't worried enough to dump ungodly high amounts of money into the race like Dems did. Who is really the party of the Rich with all of these campaign donations.

Haha! Actual comment from r/politics


My eyes are literally bloodshot red from crying for the last hour, and I just threw up from the stress. I can't believe we lost again. The president sexually assaults people, the Republican in Montana bodyslams people, and this bitch in Georgia refuses to let women with breast cancer get treatment. And the worst part is people still vote for them! It's happening. We are in 1930s Nazi Germany. We must resist.

------------------------------

It makes me sick that we are now completely controlled by Republican thugs and have Trump as President. I was at my mom's for the holidays and literally broke down crying there thinking the world my daughter will grow up in. I was screaming and lashing out at family dinner, since most of my relatives voted for such a racist, sexist, and Islamophobic piece of shit. My aunt had to give me a valium to calm down. I still wake up crying every night knowing that America, the country that once embraced progress and voted for the First Black President and had a chance to break the glass ceiling and have the First Woman President, actually voted in the embodiment of Hitler. A man who literally wants to throw gays and Muslims in camps.

FUCK. I need to go calm down. I can't believe uneducated white people did this to us.

Seriously. Since money is all Democrats can think about Trump's tweets must be worth $20 million a pop. Worried, maybe a little but they can also say tonight they are relieved.

Oh wow, that's a little dramatic. It's just partisan politics as usual, if you look at the makeup of the counties she won it wasn't realistic to expect a win. Unless she threatened the lives of all the geriatrics in those counties, she was going to coast to a win anyway. Even then they probably wouldn't have seen the news on their impending deaths until after they voted for her.

Too much outside money, thank you California liberals. Glad she won! Whatever her faults, her opponent was far worse. If the Democrats win the House, they will bring articles of impeachment (evidence be damned) and damage the country in the process; Republicans must retain control of the house.

Let's get our facts straight.

It's quite definitely a Republican stronghold: a Democrat hasn't held the seat in nearly 40 years.

Trump, by many, is not considered a Republican. If you look at previous election results the district isn't remotely competitive. I looked as far back as 2000, every Republican candidate (apart from Trump and Handel) has won the district with a 20+ point margin.

The race drew so much attention nationally because losing it would have been an embarrassment for Republicans. Republicans should be concerned it was so close. Democrats should be concerned that this is yet another swing-and-a-miss for them since Trump was elected.
