Georgia Seat Goes to the Republican, Karen Handel

Posted by Tina

Karen Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, has won her bid for Georgia’s 6th district and the vacated seat of Tom Price who now serves as Trumps health and human services secretary. The win is yet another that dashes the hopes Democrats have had to win in Republican held districts. Handel thanked President Trump for his support of her campaign in her victory speech.

Both candidates in this race received contributions from outside the region ($36million). That figure made their race the most expensive in House history. Although Ossoff, a 30-year old former congressional aide, raised more outside money ($22 million) he lost the race by 5 percentage points. The fact that he didn’t live in the district and had a lot of outside support from Hollywood elites may have turned Georgia voters off. Or maybe the people in fly over country are simply not turned off by Trump as many Democrats assume. In another race, South Carolina’s 5th district, Republican Ralph Norman won a special election seat vacated by Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney.

It’s tough for the media to accept these defeats. They do all they can to frame them in a positive light for the losing party. Example from the WSJ:

…the fact that Republicans had to work so hard to hold on to a historically conservative district sends a warning to GOP incumbents and candidates that they will have a tougher fight than usual next year, especially in suburbs like Georgia’s Sixth District, where many residents are affluent and hold college degrees.

Snark, snark! I’ll tell you what…insults aimed at the American people is not the way to win elections. One of the reasons Republicans have support from those without a college education is the fact that many blue collar and union voters left the Democrats to vote Republican and for Trump…Make America Great Again…stupid! That means individual Americans…all of them!

Four seats won.

(Lordy it’s HOT!)

    Yes Tina it’s HOT , Actually it was “Expensively Hot Atlanta” last night.

    The WSJ article you posted: “the fact that Republicans had to work so hard to hold on to a historically conservative district sends a warning to GOP incumbents and candidates that they will have a tougher fight than usual next year”

    Was a coyly written, loaded with political spin for the misinformed DNC voters.

    This was the most expensive seat the Dem’s have ever spent money on if given facts are correct, actually with over 50 million plus spent between the two parties (again, for one seat, which on average there runs about 1 .5 million in normal Champaign expense) Two things were clear to me, The DEMS plan on doing what ever to buy and lie to win back the party members they lost due to their own incompetence, and the GOP will fight back against those DNC misrepresentations, no matter the cost just in keeping with Trumps pledge to “Make America Great Again”

    Also given the DEMS out spent the GOP by over 7 million more (and most all donations it seems came from out of State or this 6th district) I think the remark made by Dana Perino about the fact the DEM’s “may just go broke trying to buy elections in 2018” was on point.

    Yes the GOP had to spend over 23 million to offset the 30 plus million of the DNC, Jon Ossoff, who one could consider a carpetbagger candidate, as he wasn’t even a resident of the district, it is clearly showing a continued pattern that reflects a wanton disregard for the voters issues by the DNC and only a interest in obtaining the political power through seats in congress, or at least those they can try to buy.

    But that’s the same mindset Obama used to increase America’s debt to 20 trillion, wasteful spending!

      Harold it’s indeed a sad state of affairs. But it’s become a necessary evil precisely because of the Democrat Party’s long march to abandon basic American values to embraced socialist values. And now, the most radical extreme elements in the party hold the power. Since their goals ultimately subvert the people we have found ourselves in a fight for our very existence as a free nation of individuals with individual rights under the law! The Democrat party divides according to class, race, creed and any special interest they can make up. The Democrat Party wages war against the capitalist system and helps to create and fund globalist organizations that work against the people of America. The Democrat Party has already won considerable control of education, entertainment, media and the courts and seeks to control energy, medicine, and religion. The Democrat Party plays games, constructing movements and organizations to “protest” and win in the court of public opinion through the spread of propaganda and lies. This is the thing driving big money in politics. The only way to escape this evil waste of resources it is to win, again and again!

      Winning will take a sustained effort on many fronts. Thank you for participating here, a small platform on the education front.

    Captain Jack, Miss Tina,

    I’ve got some great news that will warm your hearts. Jerry Brown and all the politicians in Sacramento are getting raises! They did such a good job raising taxes that they got rewarded.

    Also, the people who run CalPers are getting big raises, too. Hey, when you got around a trillion of unfunded liabilities you must be doing a heckuva job, so raises all around!

    I’m just glad I can work more hours so our rulers can get more money.

    • Tina says:

      Standard practice: give raises and promotions to those who fail! But that’s a bureaucracy for you. Sadly our largest corporations often operate by the same rules. That may be why we have so many small business…folks get tired of working in that mess and start their own companies.

      • Joe says:

        Not enough money to fix the roads but plenty of money for raises for politicians and bureaucrats, not to mention to put illegal aliens through college.

        Mull that over while you are roasting in your house and when you have a heart attack when you get your PG&E bill as Commiefornia has the highest utility rates in the country.

        • Tina says:

          Think back…how much were flat screen TV’s when they first came on the market? After a year or two of the wealthy shilling out the doe, the kinda wealthy stepped up as the price came down…until now even those on assistance are picking them up pretty cheap at Walmart.

          We should not be paying the prices we pay for energy. It’s insane.

      • Joe says:

        Let’s not forget with every raise these politicians and bureaucrats get it increases the cost of their pensions since the pensions are based on their compensation.

        With around a trillion of unfunded liabilities these pensions are already beyond the pale.

    Not as hot as Phoenix. Record breaking 119 yesterday and 115 today.

    Outside sources meddling in an election? Sounds a lot like the Demwit’s Russian collusion pipe dream . . . . Demwits now 0-5 on elections. Will someone please hand them a participation trophy??????

    “Ossoff”has now joined the political lexicon – as in “Laughing My ___ ___ .”

    Stay cool out there . . . .

    • Tina says:

      Since I’m being manipulated and oppressed by PGE/Climate Change collusion I’ll be sitting in front of several fans…lol!

      “Laughing My ___ ___ .”

      Ha! Even sounds “upper crust!”

      • RHT447 says:

        Ah, yes. Good ol’ Pigs, Goats, and Elephants. Let’s hear it for the open market. Here in the DFW area, the contract I negotiated for charges us $47.00 for the first 1000Kwh. Each additional 1000Kwh is $7..00. Delivery and taxes add about $50.00.

  4. RHT447 says:

    From elsewhere on the web—

    To the above author’s list I would add #11– Don’t for get where this took place. Some folks there have a decidedly dim view of outside interference–i.e., “The late Wawr of Nawthern Aggression”.

    Off Topic: A interesting story that has NOTHING to do with politics!!!!

  6. Peggy says:

    Both parties should have gotten the message from the Georgia election that they both are in trouble.

    For the Dems it’s that voters are waking up they have nothing to offer other than hating Trump. A pajama boy who makes documentaries, is pathetic. And for Repubs. they’d better get their health care plan up and running and tax reform done or come Nov. 2018 they’ll be looking for new jobs.

    Democrat voters waited eight years for nothing. Republican voters won’t give their reps that much time. We want term limits and if they aren’t producing we have little to no loyalties. IMHO McCain may have been a Vietnam hero, but with resent reports of him taking Soros money he’s a Senate traitor.

    Also, reported is Eric Holder is getting set up to run for president in 2020. He’ll be a contender if the RNC doesn’t start now on building a counter-campaign using all of the unethical if not illegal acts he committed while AG.

    • J. Soden says:

      Have had several face-to-face discussions McLame, and he hasn’t impressed me at all. Has an attitude of entitlement similar to the one George Wallace had.
      Has a hair-trigger temper and has been ticked off ever since W got the nomination when McLame thought he should have had it. He’s been a RINO ever since!

      AZ – and the entire country – deserve better!

      • Peggy says:

        J. S. I concur with your opinion of McLame. My best friend in the bay area son married one of his nieces. What a nightmare his life turned out to be, even after the divorce and still is today. Was told she was just like the rest of the family. Entitled and controlling on everything.

    Georgia Seat Goes to the Republican, Karen Handel

    Regarding that election, I guess you could say Karen had a handel on it…er…sorry….a handle on it.

  8. Joe says:

    Well, well…it looks like we may find out the truth about the Seth Rich murder.

    Of course the establishment wants this buried but some people think otherwise…I hope these people are careful or they will be added to the Clinton body count.

  9. More Common Sense says:

    It’s ironic. The left is always complaining that someone is trying to buy and election. So what do they do? They try to buy an election. What a bunch of hypocrites.

    • Peggy says:

      I’ve come to realize just how loyal Democrats are to their party. They will vote the party line for candidate and bill every time. The only exception was during the ObamaCare bill passage when a couple of holdouts votes were bought to pass the bill.

      Republicans are the complete opposite and hold no loyalty, because of the disappointments voters have endured since Nixon was forced to resign by his own cabinet. After over 40 years of living with republican leaders who are not perfect and can’t walk on water we’ve learned they are only human and not super hero or saviors.

      Democrats’ past has been completely rewritten to hide the facts. Every president from the beginning has walked on water. Even Andrew Jackson who was responsible for the slaughter of American Indians and ordered the Trail of Tears death march is known by only a few. The same goes for the KKK, which a resent university professor was taped, was a part of the republican party. We all know it was Monica’s fault Bill got caught with his pants down in the Oval Office.

      Everyone is comparing Trump to Nixon, but a better comparison would be Obama to Nixon. The difference being in the decisions made on loyalty to party or country. Obama for party. Nixon for country.

      What we are currently witnessing with the Democrats loosing over 1100 seats nation wide and in DC may, and I do repeat may, be the awakening of Democrat voters to the lies told all of these decades. The Navajo Indians know it was the Obama EPA that contaminated their water supply and refused to admit it or be held responsible. But, because of the media few others know what’s going on and the impact of the damage has affected their lives. The same goes for Flint, Michigan. It was democrats that created the problem their too.

      Sorry for rambling. Just trying to put in words observations about resent happenings. The heat is getting to me. Looking forward to next week when it’s only going to be 95.

      Excellent point!!!!!

  10. Tina says:

    Do read RHT447’s New Mexico article!!! It’s a great portrait of the fat dumb bureaucracy…and as she says, we can’t put the blame on the face in the window most times, they are only doing what they are required and trained to do.

    • Peggy says:

      OMG unreal. She deserves a medal for not loosing it at the DMV.

      Another example of why Trump won. Democrats are out of touch with voters who are citizens, that for now in middle America, are still the majority. I don’t know of anyone who hasn’t had a problem with DMV and Soc. Sec. at some point in the past.

      Now, because of allowing illegals a free ride citizens are guaranteed even more problems to deal with. Guaranteeing more anti-democrat votes in future elections.
