Handel Wins Handily

Boy, CNN is trying to spin this the best they can, but it’s clear that the Democrats through everything they had at this contest and Handel still won it walking away.

(CNN)Karen Handel’s victory in the Georgia special House election Tuesday night has House Republicans who recently voted for a deeply unpopular bill to repeal Obamacare breathing a sigh of relief.

And it will now offer some cover — even political reassurance — to Senate Republicans who are gearing up to cast similar votes next week.
The Democrat in the Georgia race, Jon Ossoff, was unsuccessful in flipping a traditionally Republican district in the Atlanta suburbs previously represented by Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. Had the 30-year-old first-time political candidate pulled off an upset, it would have dealt a major blow to the Republican Party’s already complicated efforts to gut Obamacare.

    While this makes me very happy, it also re-affirms that the Republicans will fall very hard if they don’t get off their collective asses.
