With less than 20% of the vote, pro-Trump lunatic Karen Handel limped in a distant second in Georgia 6th special election.
From The Moonie Times:
Handel welcomes Trump to campaign with herKaren Handel, the Republican candidate running in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, said Wednesday that it’s “all hands on deck” heading into the runoff election in June and that she welcomes President Trump’s support.The former Secretary of State in Georgia, who came in second place in Tuesday’s special election, said on CNN’s “New Day” that she welcomes support from all Republicans, including Mr. Trump.Mr. Trump, who only won Georgia’s 6th Congressional District by 1 point in November, called to congratulate Ms. Handel on her victory...
Do I think Mr. John Ossoff will take this seat?
I have no idea.
On the one hand, as I said after the 2016 election, I have never gone wrong betting on the racism and arrogant ignorance of the Right: I've only erred occasionally on the point spread. And six months later my faith in the suicidal stupidity of the average Republican voter remains deep and abiding.
On the other hand, every election between now and 2020 is a referendum on President Stupid and his just-fucking-sack-the-place agenda.
