    Maybe my math is different than yours Tony, but the GOP candidates received 97,997 votes and Osoff received 92,390. "Source"

    but he tied 11 Republicans ....

    Think about that. It's like the Republican primary where the Left was braying that Trump didn't get 50%...out of 5,000 or so candidates. Put the GOP field together and they beat the pants off the Dem.

    You can spin this however you want but the fact remains that Ossoff didn't win.

    Because when you put him head to head against the Republican, without a ton of other candidates splitting the vote, he's toast.

    If this is supposed to be some kind of referendum on *TRUMP* - it won't make a bit of sense if he loses valiantly by a GREATER margin than Hillary lost.

    Because that means, it doesn't have anything to do with Trump at all.

    Republican Democrat
    Handel - 19.8 Ossoff - 48.1
    Gray - 10.8 Edwards - 0.3
    Moody - 8.8 Slotin - 0.3
    Hill - 8.8 Quigg - 0.2
    Wilson - 0.9 Keatley - 0.1
    Abroms - 0.9
    Levell - 0.2
    Bhuiyan - 0.2
    Grawert - 0.2
    Kremer - 0.2
    Llop - 0.2
    Total (R) = 51.0 Total (D) = 49.0

    Now, it would appear to me that 51.0 is > 48.1, but I'm not sure how Common Core math works.

    The Dems are mentally ill with their Trump hysteria. They really need to get a grip.

    It's all they have right now. What are they going to run on? Health care? Jobs? Terrorism? Economy?
