Republican Karen Handel cruised to victory, winning Handely in the special election to replace Tom Price as House Representative for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.
Winning by 5+ points, Handel defeated the messageless Democrat Party and its historic effort to take the seat, backing the Ossoff campaign with a bankroll of $32 million, unprecedented in a congressional race, most of which came from California.
The Democrat Party is dead. They just don’t know it yet.

Lesson for Democrats: Karen Handel didn't run as a woman, she ran as a Republican.
