Republican candidate Karen Handel has won the special congressional election in Georgia’s 6th District, beating Democrat Jon Ossoff with an overwhelming Election Day vote.
Handel currently leads by over 10,000 votes with just over 10% remaining to be counted.
Even NBC and CNN are now admitting that the result is good news for President Trump and Republicans in Congress. Democrats have promoted the contest as a referendum on the President.
With over $50 million dollars in spending, the race broke records for the most expensive House race in history.
Final spending numbers are likely to be even higher once all funds are accounted for.
The media is now in a desperate back-pedal trying to declare “moral victory” for Democrats after 4 straight special-election losses. That’s a much different tune than they were singing a week ago when typically-biased mainstream pollsters were giving the nod to Ossoff.
