Special Election GA 06 – Resurgent Live Blog

10:42 p.m. – Beautiful tribute to Steve Scalise in Karen Handel’s victory speech. Karen decries violence in the name of political ideology on both sides of the aisle.

For perspective, Jon Ossoff spent $30 million to get 9.5% more of the vote than Tom Price's 2016 challenger, who spent <$1000.00

Gonna be a rough night in the Ossoff home. Which is not in the district.

9:18 WOW: Predictit.org shows Karen Handel with a 92% chance of winning.

Merrick Garland hugs Jon Ossoff

"It's okay, Jon. We'll both live on forever as memes."

Tweet of the night?

Moral victory!!!

Remember folks, if Ossoff wins, he wins. If he loses, he gets a moral victory.

About 17,000 Cobb votes in, Handel up 55-45 there. GOP won Cobb 58-42 in April primary #GA06

Harry Enten of polling aggregate site FiveThirtyEight is looking mildly optimistic for Handel.

Every district that has reported in has gone to Handel

Every. Single. One.
