Georgia special election filled with money and judicial interference

Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff-2

The special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District forced a runoff on April 18th that is set to become the most expensive ever.

The runoff is scheduled for June 20th. Recent reports said estimated that the contest had set a record for House races with nearly $30 million spent on just television ads.

The race between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff has become a heated one. Democrats are hoping to flip a usually safe GOP seat and set the momentum for the 2018 midterm election. Also, this campaign is seen as a referendum on President Donald Trump.

Democrats have once again turned to the bench to help boost their voter rolls. On Thursday, a Federal judge ruled in favor of extending voter registration past the normal deadline. Democrats hope that enthusiasm for Ossoff will encourage left-leaning voters to register in the district.

The election is being held to replace Tom Price who is now serving as the secretary of health and human services.

The 6th Congressional district includes the east Cobb, north Fulton, including Roswell and north DeKalb areas of metropolitan Atlanta.

  1. The democraps are so charged up to win this seat that a loss for them would put a serious dent in the confidence of the party. They still don’t get why they lost so badly to Trump. First they had the very worst candidate they could have found. Second the party of NO did not have any plans to correct the mess Obama had left behind him. It will take at least a year to dismiss all the Obama plants within government that he put into place over the past 8 years. Third the President has to neutralize all the Presidential orders Obama left behind and block all the corruption Hillary used while in office. Like the President has said ” Obama left him quite a mess ” The lawless Obama had corrupted most departments within our government. He spied on the so called enemies he thought were against him. He tried to prosecute reporters who used the media to block his plans and orders. Obama was the most corrupt President we have ever had and he enlisted all the corrupt people who would follow orders no matter what. Obama and Hillary and her whole crew should be in jail.
