GOPer Karen Handel wins over never-had-a shot-Pajama Boy, Trump Rules, in Georgia 6th special election, Democrats LOSE AGAIN

This race was never in doubt despite bogus polls and the millions of dollars from out of state by desperate Democrats looking to make a statement against President Donald Trump. 

CNN reports Republican Karen Handel defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in a high-stakes special election for a Georgia House seat on Tuesday, denying Democrats their first major victory of the Donald Trump era. 

Handel bested Ossoff by 5 percentage points in the most expensive House race in history. 

It was a much closer margin than the 20-plus point wins typically posted by former Rep. Tom Price -- whose departure to become Trump's health and human services secretary created the vacancy.
But it wasn't what Democrats who pumped $23 million into Ossoff's campaign so desperately craved: A win. 

Handel's victory showed that even with Republicans in power, the GOP's message in recent election cycles -- focused largely on urging voters to reject House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi -- remains potent.
