LOL! Failed ‘Trump Slayer’ Jon Ossoff Leading Panel on How Democrats Can Win 2018 Midterms
Would you like some Thursday humor? Epic political failure, Jon Ossoff, will lead a panel organized by Netroots Nation on Saturday to discuss how the Democrat Party can win against the Republicans in the 2018 midterms. You may remember Ossoff from the hotly contested Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District special election, which he lost to Karen Handel after raising $23 million from mainly Hollywood and party mega donors. “With 99 percent of the vote counted, Handel lead Ossoff 53 percent to 47 percent in a race that many expected to be much closer. Handel had 127,021 votes to the Democrat’s 114,390 ballots,” according to NBC News.

LEAVING IT ALL ON THE FIELD: THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS IN THE RESISTANCE ERA
Session Type(s): Panel

Room: Regency V
Democrats have suffered severe losses in recent midterm elections. Because of redistricting, the 2010 elections devastated the party so badly that we have not yet been able to recover. And 2014 wasn’t much better. But the party in control of the White House usually loses ground in the midterms—and because of Trump, progressives are more mobilized than they have been in a decade. Just in time, too: not only is control of the House at stake, but the next round of redistricting is just around the corner. For 2018, where, and how, should progressive activists focus their energy for maximum impact? Our panel— comprised of a handicapper, a staffer, an activist, and a candidate—will approach these questions from each angle.
Carpetbagger and Democrat darling, Jon Ossoff suffered a crushing loss in Georgia’s 6th District in June. Like clockwork, the liberals are blaming possible hackers, and Rachel Maddow even blamed bad weather.
In case you were on the fence of whether liberalism is a mental disorder or not, this just may convince you.
More than $50 million was spent on the race to replace Rep. Tom Price in the US House.
Rachel Maddow: “If there was a turnout effect from the bad weather today in the district, does that have any partisan implications that you can foresee in terms of what was expected for same day election day voting here rather than the early vote?
