on Ossoff, the 30-year-old Democrat candidate for Georgia's special election runoff this coming Tuesday, reported having nine times as many donors from California than from Georgia in the past two months.
Between March 29 and May 31, Ossoff reported 7,218 donations from California and only 808 donations from Georgia, The Mercury News reported. This means he took 8.9 times as many gifts from the Golden State. In the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area alone, Ossoff reported receiving 3,063 donations in the same period, nearly four times his Georgia total.
These are only the donations he is required by law to report, and do not include gifts from people who contributed less than $200 overall.
In terms of the dollar amounts, Ossoff took at least $456,296.03 from California donors, compared to $228,474.44 from supporters in Georgia. The Bay Area alone contributed $220,532.10, less than $8,000 shy of the Georgia total.
Ossoff is running for Georgia's 6th congressional district (which includes northern suburbs of Atlanta), to replace Tom Price, who became President Donald Trump's secretary of Health and Human Services.
Ossoff won a temporary victory on April 18, defeating a crowded field of Republicans. But since he only took 48.1 percent of the vote, just shy of 50 percent plus one, the race went to a runoff this coming Tuesday.
Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel took a distant second place in April, winning 19.8 percent of the vote, despite being outspent by a nearly 20-to-1 margin. After the election, President Donald Trump tweeted, "It is now Hollywood vs. Georgia on June 20th." Unlike Handel, Ossoff does not even live in the district.

Wow let that sink in to Georgia voters!
Well even if he wins it looks like the Rats are going to completely bankrupt themselves just trying to hold on. Can they afford to spend this much on every race?
Additionally, one hopes that the vote authorities in GA will be able to prevent out-of-state VOTES.
crush da lil weasel
kick Cally out of da Union .
Except for a section vetconnect San Diego and the coast to Arizona.
integrate that into the state of Greater Arizona
Democrats desperately want this Ossoff to win so they can spew the propaganda to declare it a “bad sign” for Trump.
Twice as many supporters with 9 times the money.
Why do they need me to buy their stupid train?
Isn’t San Fancisco where Gorbachev lives now?
Gives new meaning to the term “Carpetbagger” (aka “Moneybagger”).
Understand Osoff is pro-Palestinian. Don’t know whether that’s a plus or minus in Georgia which gave us Cynthia McKinney and her very anti-Semitic father.
Out of state money should be outlawed for all elections, except the presidential election.
California is pissing in your shoes, Georgia.
Not necessarily outlawed, but front page news weekly in the precinct/state where the election is.
When he loses...he should run against Pelosi.
Begs the question: Would Ossoff need to move to Pelosi’s district to run against her?
I’d bet that Soros and other wealthy Globalists are funneling a lot of money into this race, as well as other races. Yes, they can afford it.
He’s moe in tune with California.
And, Jim Robinson lives in Fresno.....Throw a party.
Georgia needs to check and toss all ballots postmarked from California. Ossoff is colluding with California to steal the election. We’ve got to get to the bottom of this.
Apparently neither he nor the majority of his supporters can vote for him.
I’ve heard people from out of state say that North Carolina is turning into California as it grows, meaning the look and feel of the place. But, money flowing out of that politically ill-begotten state to directly subvert the politics in Georgia is offensive on another level entirely.
