Dem Lucy McBath unseats Handel in pivotal Georgia House seat
The Hill ^ | November 8, 2018 | Lisa Hagen

Rep. Karen Handel (R-Ga.) conceded Thursday in her tight House race in an Atlanta suburb to gun control activist Lucy McBath (D).

The victory puts the Georgia district in Democratic hands more than a year after the party fell short last year in a heated special election that drew national attention. Handel ended up winning by about five points over Jon Ossoff.

” ...gun control activist Lucy McBath (D).”

Looks like the people in that Georgia district prefer fewer guns and more MS-13.

People can be so stupid as to ignore just plain self-interest.

I feel bad for her son’s death and her loss, but Gingrich’s suburban seat is gone.

The Atlanta suburbs around Cobb, Gwinnett is becoming more Democratic.

I warned people here on FR in the summer that Cobb was changing, but no one listened.

Can you believe this was Newt Gingrich’s district in the 90’s. I can tell you exactly what happened though because I live there.

Many transplants from Northern states working for companies that have relocated down here, as well as tons of imported Islamic and Indian tech employees.

What exactly were they supposed to do -- go around and burn down the homes of all their Democrat neighbors?

Well no one said for all of the conservatives to move out.

Seems like our side just LOVES to move out of places, and flee to some hugbox community far out in the middle of nowhere, leaving all of these places to these “transplants”.

How many times do we hear post of people leaving X city or Y state for “Texas” or “Idaho”?

Well hey, that’s forfeiting. Dont complain when the new people dont magically turn into good old conservatives when they buy the houses on the market.

The Socialist idiots reached critical mass during Clintons Presidency and have been exploding ever since with predictable results. It is just a question of time before the US becomes a full on Socialist State.

Republicans and conservatives always take the high moral road and continually lose ground - if they take any ground at all because they’re ‘too busy with other things’ to become active in their country’s politics even to forgetting to vote.

So the Democrats continued to win power until taken over by the Socialists/Communists in the last two decades and more actively continue the herd march toward their chosen cliff.

If you want to win the suburbs back, you had better campaign on the issues that matter to them. It is hard to do that when Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOPe sat on their asses for the first year plus if Trump’s term and did nadda.

Tax cuts and the economy are great as a start but healthcare and other issues are a drag on the suburban wallet.

Karen Handel was ahead even when all of the precincts were counted. (GA-06 is one district to the east of me, covers north Fulton County, east Cobb county.)

Never heard a single Karen Handel ad - even on the conservative WSB 750, AM 920, AM 640, nor religious-oriented radio talk shows across the area. No ads on the country nor business shows. She (Handel) was invisible.)

Lost her nerve (refused to demand a recount) when the democrats nationally DEMAND recounts, and re-recounts, and re-recounts ... until they win.

I do remember, during the Handel/Ossoff fight, someone saying that Handel wasn’t a very good candidate. We need to get better candidates! The Left cherry picked Dem Veterans this time (not here but all over the country). That is OUR bailiwick! I believe that our Armed Forces are about 90% Conservative, but the Left sure can find Dem Veterans when they want.

Conservatives (typical non political conservatives) are sending their kids to schools and universities mentally and spiritually unarmed. They put it in their child’s head since birth that Universities will make them so wise and well rounded, so what do we expect? The schools and colleges are leftist factories.

White women are voting against the interests of their families, their nation and themselves. Just like in Europe, it will end disastrously.

Do not underestimate the impact of the Indian immigrants. People tend to think of them as the "good" minority but from conversations with people in the Indian community they are here from one primary reason: economic.

They are not here to assimilate.

They come from a country that is partially socialist in nature and they are willing to vote for people who will give them "free" stuff.

I fled NJ 6 years ago to PA because there’s no fixing that state. I have come to one final conclusion, the left is perpetrating lies 24/7 via the media, public schools, colleges, Hollywood, etc. People are buying into progressivism/Communism calling for civility and truth while being uncivil and supporting disorder. The bottom line of every single communist movement and takeover is removing God and anything to do with God from society then destroying the family. The only answer to saving our country is Christ-—because Christ helps the blind ACCEPT the truth. Simply stating facts and truth is good, but if one’s eyes are closed to said truth, it will never be accepted. Without Christ our country eventually falls into chaos and “anything goes”. There is no mooring for truth it simply becomes a feeling. Sadly, that is totally destructive because it’s based on who how control or the loudest mouthpiece...then truth can be altered or changed.

I will continue to “fight” with facts, but more importantly I will expect the only way our society turns around is faith in Christ.

What if they'd listened to you? Were they supposed to run the libs out of town? Your warning is about as valuable as telling someone they will one day die.
