Georgia GOP Leader: Scalise Shooting Will Win Us Tuesdays House Election

Source: Huffington Post

A Republican official in Georgia believes his party will win Tuesday’s special election in the state’s 6th Congressional District thanks to last week’s attack on GOP congressmen at a baseball practice in Northern Virginia.

“I’ll tell you what: I think the shooting is going to win this election for us,” Brad Carver, the party chairman in Georgia’s 11th congressional district, said Saturday, according to The Washington Post.

Speaking after a get-out-the-vote rally for GOP candidate Karen Handel, Carver suggested that the shooting, carried out by a former volunteer for the Democratic presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), was the latest sign of “left-wing extremism.”

“[M]oderates and independents in this district are tired of left-wing extremism. I get that there’s extremists on both sides, but we are not seeing them,” said Carver. “We’re seeing absolute resistance to everything [President Donald Trump] does. Moderates and independents out there want to give him a chance. Democrats have never given this president a chance.”

6. They are seriously demented and disgusting people.

I'm curious how Scalise is going to react to this when he recovers and makes his first public statement.

4. They have arleady stolen the election by "losing" 40,000 new voter registrations

They know they will win or steal so they have to have a reason, this will do.

Democracy is done. It really died when McConnell told the American public the SC justice they overwhelmingly voted for was going to be denied by the minority.

Once you can do that you end democracy.

10. Old Story

The only thing I can find about 40,000 voter registrations gone missing was from 2014.

7. So many geniuses within the Republican Party. Brad Carver is a shining star, isn't he?

[center]

Known far and wide for his wisdom, quiet good taste, he's a real Renaissance teabagger. Brad's deep, so deep.

9. Late money coming in on Handel

 

She's gone from +140 to +130 on my gaming site. Ossoff still a -170 favorite but I have money on Handel.

I'm just not buying a Dem to win GA 6.

11. God da##

These scumbags and the fantasy world they live in ...

Yeah, the dems just hate the guy and never gave him a chance, unlike what they did with BHO, an actual decent, civil, rationale, competent POTUS vs, literally, the worst example of the human species imaginable.

GOP cant win an election without cheating or gerrymandering.

16. Sad thing is he's probably right. Handel will win comfortably, and then TRUMP will crow on Twitter.

He will take it as affirmation of everything he does. "DEMS LOSE BIGLY! ANOTHER WIN FOR TRUMP!"
