Georgia’s 6th District Race Heads to Runoff … Democrat Jon Ossoff vs. Republican Karen Handel

 DEMOCRATS, HOLLYWOOD AND THE LEFT POWER ELITE SPENT ALL KINDS OF OUTSIDE MONEY AND STILL COULD NOT WIN THE SPECIAL ELECTION …

Last night’s Georgia’s 6th District special election was touted as a referendum on President Donald trump and Democrats thought for sure they had this one. However, at the end of the evening Georgia’s 6th District special election would be heading toward a runoff.  It will be Democrat Jon Ossoff vs. Republican Karen Handel. Much like the night of the presidential election with Hillary Clinton, Democrats thought they could win this one with 30 year old  Jon Ossoff against a mass of other opponents. They hoped to take advantage of the special election and take a GOP House seat. They did not. Now that the race is headed to a one on one run-off election with a formidable candidate like Karen Handel, this seat will most likely remain Republican. Democrats tried to pour in all kinds of outside money to win this seat, including a candidate in Ossoff who does not even live in the district. They failed. What do Democrats do now? The runoff election will take place in June.

Roughly five hours after polling locations closed, major networks began projecting that Georgia’s 6th District special election would be heading toward a runoff on June 20.

That means Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel, the race’s top two vote-getters, will have nine more weeks of expensive and heating campaigning before voters will decide who will replace Tom Price, now Trump’s health secretary, as the representative for Atlanta’s affluent, leafy northern suburbs in the House.

Ossoff, a 30-year-old documentary film maker and political novice, told his supporters late Tuesday that a runoff “shattered expectations.” “We will be ready to fight on and win in June if it is necessary,” he said.

Earlier Tuesday evening, former Secretary of State Karen Handel vowed “start the campaign anew” on Wednesday, as her onetime Republican opponents began to coalesce around her. “Beating Ossoff and holding this seat is something that rises above any one person,” she told supporters.

Democrats begin to wonder: When do we win?

For all the roiling anger and energy at the grassroots, the party still fell short in Georgia and Kansas. And Democratic prospects in upcoming elections aren’t promising.

For all the anger, energy, and money swirling at the grassroots level, Democrats didn’t manage to pick off the first two Republican-held congressional seats they contended for in the Trump era, and the prospects aren’t markedly better in the next few House races coming up: the Montana race at the end of May, and the South Carolina contest on June 20.

Their best shot at knocking Donald Trump down a peg appears to be Ossoff’s runoff against Republican Karen Handel, also scheduled for June 20. But the Democrat will be an underdog in that contest, when there won’t be a crowded field of Republicans to splinter the vote.

After that, it’ll be another five months before the New Jersey and Virginia elections for governor, leaving some strategists and lawmakers wondering how to keep the furious rank-and-file voters engaged in fueling and funding the party’s comeback — especially given the sky-high expectations that surrounded Ossoff’s ultimately unsuccessful run at the 50-percent threshold that was necessary to win the seat outright.

Trump claims credit as Georgia congressional election heads to runoff.

In many respects, why shouldn’t President Donal trump claim some credit for this? If Democrat Ossoff had won the MSM would have pronounced the Trump presidency over before it has even begun. If we are to take the opposite of what the LEFT and the MSM were spewing prior to this if the Democrat had won, then this is a huge victory for Trump. However, it is also a wake-up call to the GOP that nothing is for certain and they need to get their act in gear, do what they said they were going to do or … their base will not come out in off year elections.

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes Enters the ‘No Spin Zone’ … FBI & NSA Will Be No Shows for Closed Door Session (VIDEO)

WHO DOES THE FBI AND NSA WORK FOR AGAIN?

It would appear that the House Intelligence Committee and Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes are getting very close to the truth with regards to the unmasking of individual’s names. Rep. Devin Nunes describes why he went to the old executive office building and saw the tapes. This is why Democrats and the MSM are calling for him to resign, that is what happens when some one gets really close to the truth that you don’t want exposed. Keep up the good work, the rats are getting nervous.

House Democrats Delay Leadership Elections … Could Nancy Pelosi Be Out?

NOW IF THE NEW YORK TIMES WANTS TO WRITE ABOUT DISARRAY, THEY MIGHT LOOK TO THE LEFT AND THE DEMOCRATS

The House Democrats delayed their leadership elections until after Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 30. Democrats are scrambling after the 2016 elections that saw them lose the White House and continue to be in the minority in the House and Senate. If the New York Times wants to write about a party in disarray, they might want to focus on the Democrats. It was supposed to be a glorious night and an all but sure thing, with a Hillary win, recapturing the Senate and picking up 10 to 20 House seats. None of it happened. Now Democrats are scrambling. They are looking for a new DNC chairperson and possibly new leadership in the House. Note to NY Times, that would be called disarray.

Nancy Pelosi’s hold on the House Democratic Caucus is being tested.

Fresh off an Election Day embarrassment, and facing an uprising from her rank-and-file members, Pelosi grudgingly agreed to postpone leadership elections scheduled for Thursday. Democrats will now vote for their leaders on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

The delay is designed to give Democrats time to figure out why they failed to make bigger gains against a Republican ticket led by Donald Trump. Instead of picking up the 10 to 20 seats they had once hoped — or even the majority they secretly dreamed about — Democrats have netted only a half-dozen seats so far, with some races still to be called.

This poor showing has led to a serious round of finger-pointing among Democrats. The culprits range from Hillary Clinton to FBI Director James Comey to their own leadership’s failure to craft an economic message that would appeal to rural white voters.

Pelosi doesn’t appear to be in any serious danger of being ousted. For starters, no one has come forward yet to challenge her, though Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) is cautiously weighing a bid for minority leader.

Ted Cruz Responds to Boehner’s Comments … ‘If You Want a President Like John Boehner, Donald Trump’s Your Man’ (VIDEO)

I WANT ALL REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES AND INDEPENDENTS TO REALLY LISTEN TO CRUZ’S COMMENTS BELOW …

In response to former establishment Republican Speaker of the House Boehner’s comments calling Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh,” Cruz responded in kind with some pretty thought provoking comments of his own. If you liked John Boehner as Speaker, if you want a John Boehner’s golfing and texting buddy as president, then Donald Trump is your guy. So who exactly is the political insider if they are Boehner’s golfing and texting buddy? Hmm?

“When John Boehner calls me ‘Lucifer,’ he’s not directing that at me, he’s directing that at you.”

Cruz, campaigning in Fort Wayne, Indiana ahead of the state’s May 3 primary, responded by saying Boehner was letting his “inner Trump come out” with his remarks. He attempted to turn the criticism into a slam on Trump.

“John Boehner in his remarks described Donald Trump as his texting and golfing buddy,” Cruz said. “So if you want someone that’s a texting and golfing buddy, if you’re happy with John Boehner as speaker of the House and you want a president like John Boehner, Donald Trump is your man.”
