Unofficial returns showed that Ossoff had earned less than 50 percent of the vote, the threshold needed to declare an outright victory. Instead, with 48.3 percent, Ossoff was headed to a runoff against Republican Karen Handel, the top GOP vote-getter in a special election to replace Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.
Embarrassing indeed. As a follower of such contests you want to hedge your bets. I thought Ossoff would not make the 50% threshold. However I would have predicted him landing at around 43%. He got 48.3% so my guess was useless, hence why I didn’t put it in writing.
Moving forward the only takeaway for team Trump is avoids a negative news cycle and hurts morale of the enemy. We need more nationalist candidates to be elected and we need it sooner rather than later.
The GOP believe Trumpian nationalism is a fad, we must prove it is the future.
