The Democratic Party suffered a major defeat in Georgia’s special election to fill the state’s 6th District House Seat after Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price vacated the position to work in the Trump administration.
After the Democrats wasted tens of millions of dollars to try and help Jon Ossoff win the seat, Republican Karen Handel still destroyed him.
According to reports, Handel defeated Ossoff by around 3.8 percent by the time the race was called in her favor.
After winning, President Donald Trump congratulated Handel on her victory.
Congratulations to Karen Handel on her big win in Georgia 6th. Fantastic job, we are all very proud of you!

Conservative Tribune reports:
In short, outside liberal groups were trying to buy up an election in Georgia, but they failed. The importance of this victory cannot be overstated. Democrats tried their hardest to put a dent in Trump, but Republican voters showed that they still believe in Trump’s administration.
CNN noted that while the closeness of this race in a district that has been reliably Republican for decades is a kind of “moral victory” for the Democrats, but that’s really just a loss. It’s the same kind of loss the Democrats posted in Kansas in April and Montana in May, as the Los Angeles Times pointed out.
And it’s the same kind of loss they posted in Tuesday’s other special election, when Republican Ralph Norman beat Democrat Archie Parnell in South Carolina’s 5th District, according to The New York Times.
They still have yet to win an actual victory despite all the money they have spent over the past few months.
Hopefully the Democrats will continue to dump a lot of money into losing campaigns. If they keep this strategy up, they will bankrupt their party and ensure that the Republican Party can safely govern this country.
The last thing our country needs right now is irresponsible Democratic leadership. At a time when our spending is out of control, conservative values are needed to try and reign in our broken budgets.
