Republican Handel Beats Democrat Ossoff In Georgia 6th Special Election

Share
Handel

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (Reuters) – Republican Karen Handel won a hotly contested Georgia congressional race on Tuesday, CNN reported, fending off a Democratic challenge in a race that was widely seen as a referendum on President Donald Trump.

With more than 65 percent of the votes counted, CNN predicted that Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, would defeat Democrat Jon Ossoff, a political newcomer who sought to wrest control of a suburban Atlanta district that has elected Republicans to Congress since the 1970s.

    The word “hotly” contested should put the fear of 2018 into Republicans. And, I am not so naive as to note that the same tiny percentage margin the GOP continues to win elections by can in fact be more of their election rigging.

    We still do not have any idea what the Russians did with all of the data they mined from 2016’s election.

    As for Handel, she never once mentioned Trump. That is a very telling clue as to what the GOP today is doing. Treading on crushed glass that at any minute could bloody them.

      Do you admit that Reality Winner disclosed classified information that shows that elections in 39 states were all hacked?

      Sorry but when the votes are this close, I’d be the first to demand a recount. The asses of the GOP would do no less. 5 percentage points? Really? And how do we know those ONLY 5 percentage points were not the result of the use of datamined hacked information? Your boy is going down. You can stow your Stars and Bars, your bull nosed bully boy pick up, your AK47s and your Georgia Peach Dixiebelles. You are about to fall into the only shithole in all of Dogpatch. The South Shall Rise Again? Long enough for us to toss your rebel asses in jail for rigging elections?

          Get off the stage pallie. Bernie Sanders USED the Dem party. You mean like running for president like Sanders did ONLY “because he thought running against a woman would mean he would win?” Smells doesn’t it? Particularly when Sanders laid claim to being in Congress for 44 years. So..tell us. Why not run against Bush’ ’41? Or Bush ’43? Or for that matter Obama? You know why not you coward. Because Sanders thinks male genitals are the only qualifications to win elections. Get over it.

          Remember Nikki jiggly ass Haley? Admitting she has very little experience for the job she was appointed to do? Remember Cruella de Vos, Secy of Ed who was ONLY appointed because her brother, Eric Blackwater Prince handed Bush millions in campaign donations?

          Remember Stonewall Sessions, another hick who was only appointed by a Governor of AL now forced to resign for fraud?

          Want more? Hillary, Obama and Donna Brazille NEVER had 150 lawsuits and a $25 million fine for money laundering. You hicks are giving yourselves a bad rep for all the lies you condone, all the thieving, conflict of interest and outright kissing up to Putin.

            Are you still wiping with toilet paper? No? I figured that. I only listen to news that has legal proof of what they place on their programs. Your Fux News only proves you can’t handle truth and facts.

            Someone tells mental cases like you and your ilk the sky is blue and you pull a tantrum, stomp your feet and roll on the floor screeching to the heavens, “The sky is purple! The sky is purple!”

            Who raised you? Mammy and Pappy Yokum? was Mammy Yokum too busy to teach you how to know right from wrong, truth from fiction? Was Pappy drunk as a skunk on White Lightnin’ all day every day and too incoherent to teach you that you can’t force your lame brained ideas on the rest of the educated world.

            Your Depends are loaded. Make sure your Mommy changes them before you reek.

    It just boggles my mind that these people keep re-electing the very same party that is totally out to screw them! I hope they like their new healthcare policy and paying higher taxes so that we can support the wealthy!

    You cannot possibly miss that fascists like Misinformed, Mikeeee and Patriot insist they must do Putin’s work of trying to infiltrate threads no one but them believe.

    You have to wonder why they even bother to post when there are plenty of right wing sites they can slather their lies and distortions of facts. But, as we have all realized since the Russian hacking took place last year and the Republicans and right wing now continue to allow it, these righties have to do what Putin demands…contradict facts and truth. Take over our social media any way they can and generally make fools of themselves believing we don’t recognize their Putin style hacking.
