Another Crazy Night In Georgia

So, what if they lose this one?
Liberal grassroots groups are frustrated by national Democrats' decision to spend comparatively small amounts in Kansas and Montana races, opting instead to pour money into the Georgia election — now the most expensive House race in history. That ramps up the pressure even higher for Democrat Jon Ossoff to pull off a win on June 20.

“We need this win in Georgia 6, because if Jon Ossoff is victorious, it will create the amount of momentum that we will need to go into the midterm elections,” said Georgia Democratic strategist Tharon Johnson, although he also said what Ossoff has already done is “remarkable.”

He added that a victory in the suburban Atlanta district will create a national model that the party can use to flip more seats in the 2018 midterms.
With less than three weeks until the highly anticipated Georgia race, the campaigns and outside groups are showing no signs of slowing down as polls show Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel in a statistical dead heat.

The Georgia district is seen as Democrats’ best opportunity to flip a district that has previously elected solidly Republican representatives such as former Speaker Newt Gingrich. Trump’s razor-thin victory in the suburban Atlanta district last year — he won the district by less than 2 percent — fuels Democrats’ hope that they can use the anti-Trump headwinds to propel them to victory in the seat last held by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price (R).
Hopefully nobody will get body slammed this time...
