Jon Ossoff is trying to take a seat held by Republicans for decades and he doesn’t even live in that district!
California Democrats have been responsible for over 80 percent of his campaign financing, feeding off of anger against Donald Trump.
Looks to me like a waste of money, especially after recent revelations that he is worse than a carpetbagger!
The man can’t even vote for himself!
My good friend Christy Waters stated it best:
Here’s a good campaign ad for Jon Ossoff, the Democrat running for the Price seat in GA-6…”My name is Jon Ossoff. Please cast your vote for me, because I can’t cast a vote for myself since I don’t live in the district.” #EpicFailure
Thousands of people poured into polls across three counties Tuesday to vote for the 6th Congressional District seat and no candidate broke 50%.
The race will now head to a runoff on June 20 between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel
Hollywood has even come out for the off-cycle vote, with actor Samuel L. Jackson cutting a radio ad urging voters to flip the seat once held by Republican Tom Price, who is now Trump’s health secretary.
“Vote for the Democratic Party. Stop Donald Trump, a man who encourages racial and religious discrimination and sexism,” Jackson says in the ad, casting the race as a chance to undermine the Republican president and throwing in “Pulp Fiction” references for good measure. “We have to channel the great vengeance and fury we have for this administration into votes at the ballot box.”
Democrats tried a similar tactic last week in their failed bid for the open seat of Kansas’ Mike Pompeo, arguing a win in that conservative district would prove just how eager Americans are to end Trump and fellow Republicans’ control of Washington.
Washington Democrats, however, put essentially no resources into the race. By contrast, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee staffers are on the ground in Georgia, and supporters have given top Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff $8 million-plus, with 80 percent of the money coming from outside the state.
Actions taken in anger rarely accomplish the task.
Democrats are so angry that Hillary lost and President Trump won that they are making some huge mistakes. They are desperate!
Turnout is lower in midterm elections and Democrats will have an uphill battle in 2018. The economy is already showing signs of fast improvement and as businesses become more confident the job market will soar.
The Democrats are hoping for a jumpstart in special elections, something that so far has failed.
Reports lately show even Elizabeth Warren could be in serious trouble with the announcement of former Navy Seal Gabriel Gomez jumping into the race.
Donald Trump energized a voting bloc that has not voted in quite a few cycles.
The DNC damaged themselves with scandals and cheating. Hillary damaged the party with a stunning loss. The Democrats are in a mess and the Republicans seem to have the wind at their back.
If Democrats pump $8 million-plus dollars into a race, using Trump as the demon, and still lose, they will have handed the Republicans a significant win out of what would have most likely gone unnoticed.
I have said all my life, don’t pick a fight you will lose. You only hand your opponent a win they would not have had in the first place.
The Democrat Party needs to step back, take a breath, and rethink their game plan.
On second thought… never mind. Just KEEP acting out of anger! LOL!
