Summary: ” The reason why that I was able to bring it home was because Republicans showed up.” Handel supporters have taken to wearing stickers that read, “Republicans who stay home vote to elect Democrats.” And some Democrats are worried that last week’s shooting of GOP lawmakers on a ballfield outside of Washington, and a recent threat against Handel will only make it harder, for soft-Republicans voters to step outside their comfort zone and vote Democratic, maybe for the first of all time in their lives. Nearby, Ossoff supporters, including two wearing inflatable dinosaur costumes, tried to drown the GOP hopeful out with chants to “flip the Sixth” — the sixth congressional district — in the final hours of a race cast as a referendum on President Donald Trump. by Alex Seitz-Wald ROSWELL, Georgia — Disappearing into a swarm of TV cameras from as far away as Japan, Republican Karen Handel wanted to make sure they got a good view of the sticker she affixed to her lapel at the end of casting a ballot, for herself Tuesday in the almost all expensive congressional election ever. Handel has tried to paint Ossoff as a pawn of out-of-state liberals, telling Fox News that voters in this Republican-leaning suburban district “are not interested in Hollywood, in California, coming in, and buying this seat.” “Frankly, if this is the optimal ever argument my opponents have against me,” Ossoff retorted on MSNBC, “I’m feeling good about the final outcome tonight.” Ossoff, a 30-year-old foregoing congressional staffer and journalist, has run as pragmatic moderate, with a closing ad that focuses on cutting government waste and talk about “building a coalition bigger than party.” The questions about his residency, care for almost all of Handel’s attacks, are aimed at giving pause to the Trump-skeptical Republicans and independents who Ossoff needs to win in this heavily GOP district. “I want you all to see my ‘I voted’ sticker, because Jon Ossoff can’t do that,” Handel said of her Democratic opponent, who grew up here but lives just outside of the district now.”
