It was the most expensive House race in history. It was hyped to no end. It was the bellwether for how Democrats could perform in red-leaning districts. And they failed. Georgia’s special election in its sixth congressional race, which cost over $50 million dollars, pitted Democrat Jon Ossoff against Republican Karen Handel. Handel won and now Jon Ossoff, who didn’t perform any better than when he first failed to clinch the seat in a primary, is slated to be an oracle to victory at the progressive Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta. David Rutz at the Free Beacon has more [bold indicates conference agenda text]:

Yeah, Democrats need to quit using redistricting as a crutch to explain their serial failure in winning elections. It’s because they moved to the Left of America, especially on culture issues, and they embraced an authoritarian version of political correctness. They shunned white working class voters, 44 percent of eligible voters, lost the rural counties, and have no farm system to find quality candidates to win in these areas. Democrats need to reclaim rural America to retake Congress and win back the presidency. They cannot do it with just the cities. And because of these geographic constraints, it’s very possible that the GOP can retain its majority in Congress next year, especially if Trump increases his approval ratings to at least 40 percent. That’s unprecedented, but also a rather stinging reminder for the Left that the depth of their political apparatus is stunningly shallow.Democrats are giddy about the 23-24 House seats where voters split tickets for Hillary Clinton and their respective GOP representative. The problem is that there are a dozen Democratic House districts where Trump won last year. Second, suburban districts aren’t enough to win back the House. Third, and here’s the real punch to the gut, even if the Democrats were able to turnout every Clinton voter who voted for a Republican House member and have them flip their vote—it wouldn’t be enough to retake the House. It all circles back that they need to branch out from the metropolitan centers of power and maybe tolerate Democrats who are pro-gun, pro-life, and not too keen on single-payer health care. That is a compromise that they may not be able to accept, as the party heads for a collision course with its own geographic wall. Yet, by all means, elevate Ossoff as an oracle for winning since moral victories are all that you have right now, Democrats.
