What Karen Handel’s Win in Georgia Says About the State of the Democratic Party

In case you weren’t paying attention, a huge political experiment was occurring in Georgia’s 6th district these past months. The former house of representatives member resigned from his position to take a spot in Trump’s White House, so the seat was open for the taking. The two people running to fill the role were Jon Ossoff and Karen Handel, and they couldn’t have been more representative of the parties they represent. Jon Ossoff is a 30 year old documentary filmmaker and Democrat, serving as a political aide for Rep. Hank Johnson.
