Today is the runoff election in the Georgia 6th Congressional District between Democratic Candidate Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel.
Last month Ossoff just missed winning this congressional seat outright on April 18, getting 48% of the vote to Handel’s 18% in a crowded field, This was a seat that was once held by Newt Gingrich for 20 years and hasn’t been held by a Democrat since Jimmy Carter lived in the White House.
And both sides want it badly. The Democrats want it because it’ll put them one seat closet to taking back control of the House in 2018 along with the psychic satisfaction of taking away a seat that once was a GOP bastion. The Republicans are just as determined to keep it, and that has resulted in both sides spending $56 million in this race.
After all the ads, the campaign stops in the district, the ground games and canvassing for both sides being unleashed, it’s all in the hands of the GA 6 voters to decide who gets the seat and momentum toward the 2018 midterm elections as the nation and national news media awaits the results.
So if you live in the GA 6th Congressional District, go handle your electoral business . This one is extremely close and your vote could decide this election. You have until 7 PM EDT to cast it, so go do so and take a few friends to the polls with you.
Handle your election business GA 6.
