“Trump! Trump! Trump!”
That’s what Karen Handel supporters chanted after she crushed Democrat Jon Ossoff in a special election Tuesday in Georgia’s 6th congressional district. The race was held to replace former Congressman Tom Price, who’s now the Health and Human Services Secretary.
During her speech, Handel gave a “special thanks to the president of the United States of America,” setting off raucous cheers and chants of “Trump! Trump! Trump!” from the audience.
Proving once again that pollsters are little more than high-priced scam artists, Karen Handel won 52% of the vote over Ossoff, who got 48%.
Polls consistently suggested Handel was going to lose, with Democrats breathlessly claiming the special election would be a referendum on Donald Trump’s presidency.
Ossoff did better than he should have, thanks to $25 million in donations and support from clueless Hollywood celebrities and Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who all endorsed Ossoff in a bid to flip the 6th district.
The Georgia special election was the most expensive congressional race in U.S. history. Ossoff spent $25 million, fueled mostly by donations from California, where coastal liberals arrogantly thought they could buy a local Georgia election.
Left-wing actors Jane Fonda, Chelsea Handler and Alyssa Milano donated money and time to Jon Ossoff’s failed campaign. Milano, who’s broke as a joke and doesn’t pay her taxes, is now 0-4 in backing losers.
In the weeks preceding the election, President Trump urged Georgians to vote for Handel.
After Handel won, Trump tweeted his congratulations and noted that Republicans are now undefeated in special elections despite the fake news mainstream media and millions of dollars wasted by hapless Democrats.
Trump supporters reveled in their victory on Twitter.
You were right. #winning
