Polls Close In #GA06, Early Vote Strong For Democrat Jon Ossoff

quote [ The Democratic House candidate is flirting with the possibility of an outright win in Tuesday’s primary. ]

So far so good... looks like a squeaker...up 56%...way early.

CNN is reporting that it's going to a runoff, he didn't crack the magic 50%.
Still an amazing showing for a Dem in this district.

All this really shows me is how urgently we need to get money out of politics. A congressman is paid $174,000 a year. Ossoff raised close to $8 million. The republican he was running against also raised a shit ton of money. Now that it is going to a runoff a whole lot more will come pouring in now.

"Yes sir."

If we can't pass taxes on the 1% maybe we can at least start increasing the cost it takes to buy a politician. A propaganda arms race, i feel is well suited to millenials willing to act as arms merchants. It's already being done for lulz, if you're good at something why do it for free?
