All eyes, politically speaking, will be on a certain special Congressional election today.
It’s Georgia’s Sixth Congressional district – the one vacated by Tom Price when he stepped down to become President Trump’s Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary.
This election would not otherwise be of importance or the slightest bit intriguing, but this is not just any election. Oh, it won’t change the make-up of the House, or unseat the Republicans. Nothing that dramatic – at least not to normal people.
This election is being overly hyped because this is a red district in a red State, which may actually end up being won by a Democrat. And this, as is being broadcast by virtually all left wing media sources, is to be proof of the American voter’s absolute repudiation of Trump.
That’s the bottom line – that’s what it’s all about, and only that.
The left is salivating over the potential victory, much like they were just before Hillary Clinton flamed out and crashed in a fiery ball of death.
So what’s the big deal anyway? What chance does a liberal Democrat (as if there is any other type of Democrat anymore) have in winning a reliable Republican district?
