Liberals from across the country poured millions of dollars (and Hollywood celebrities drove voters to the polls) in the special election in Georgia’s 6th District. They lost. Running against Nancy Pelosi remains an effective electoral strategy for House Republican candidates.
Republican Karen Handel won a nationally watched congressional election Tuesday in Georgia, and she thanked President Donald Trump after she avoided an upset that would have rocked Washington ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
Returns showed Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, winning about 52 percent of the vote over Democrat Jon Ossoff, who won nearly 48 percent in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.
