Ossoff Gets ‘Handled’; Decision Desk HQ Declares Republican Karen Handel the Winner!

In the most expensive congressional race in American history, Republican Karen Handel has handily defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff who had a massive fundraising advantage and the support of leftist elitists in Hollywood very similar to those who supported Hillary Clinton.

With 81% of precincts reporting, Handel holds a sizable lead over Ossoff by five percent, 52.5% to 47.5%, enough of a margin that Decision Desk HQ has declared Handel the winner, and a much larger margin than what polls had previously predicted.

Ossoff received a whopping 97.5 percent of his fundraising haul from outside the State of Georgia, with roughly $55 million being raised between the candidates.

As of May, Ossoff held a massive fundraising advantage, as the New York Times reported. Out of the $28 million raised by the campaigns themselves (the rest of the $55 came from PACs), $23.6 million was raised by Jon Ossoff with only $4.5 being raised by Karen Handel.

Some of the funniest messages on Twitter, as people began to capitalize on another Democrat humiliation, included:

Republicans successfully labeled Ossoff as a Nancy Pelosi liberal, a label that apparently stuck.
