I'd be curious to hear from some campaigning wonks what the differences are between GA-06 and KS-04.  The only two I can see immediately, is GA-06 is Newt's old seat, and the Democratic hopeful has raised a huge chunk of money from out-of-state people looking for a win against the GOP.

Georgians have done their best to stop Trump's boss from attacking them from the north but I don't think they have much of an effect on american elections.

Yeah, we all might as well give up and die for the billionaires rather than try to resist in whatever way we can. That's a surefire farking path to winning. Thank you for your "concern". I, too remember a time when I was learning to play Tupac's "Hit 'em up" on my bass and it was so shiatty that I never picked up another bass or guitar again. You see, I didn't succeed so why waste my time trying? Haha, just kidding, I'm not some biatch that rolls on their back and shows their belly at the first sign of failure. Oh, and I can play the fark out of hit em up today.

That you would equate practicing a learned skill with a tactic that either works or it doesn't (and it really appears to not work) says a lot about you

Do you think we just used the wrong celebrities in 2016?

for this election? maybe. SLJ is loved in Atlanta and no matter how splintered the Republican challenge is (and it is with 10 nominees throwing their hats in the ring) the Democrats are going to need the black vote to win.

Added to that the Republicans (oh, sorry, I'm wrong, the Congressional Leadership Fund, not AT ALL the Republican party) running ad after ad trying to scare the white people into voting against him then it could be the push to flip that seat.

When Saint Jefferson Beauregard Patrick joins the Federal side and won't and can't drive the snakes out of Alpharetta, we need a man like Samuel Jackson to step up, and drive the serpents back to the airport where they belong, on the wrong side of history.

That they think that celebrity endorsements are what will start their communist revolution says a lot too. There is a smart and a funny button but no retarded button and that is a damn shame.

Not sure if the DCCC has any tinge of regret regarding KS-04, but they should considering that seat was lost by only 7 points.  Imagine if they'd actually gone all out to help.

Not to knock the DCCC but, how the country has felt about Trump, you'd think they'd dip their toe into a deep red state like Kansas and find out how Trump's actually making people want to come and vote.

Not sure about Kansas, but GA-06 is a reliably conservative district.  It was Newt's and then Price's seat.  In 2016, Cobb Co. flipped blue for the first time in a long time.  There's the tendency to make this a Trump referendum, but the part of Cobb that sits in GA-06 voted for Trump over Clinton.  The only way I see Dems prevailing is if Ossoff gets more than 50% outright in the special election.

These maps are really good, but to this I'd add that KS-4 is a R-15 and GA-6 is a R-8.

Winning by only single digits in a R-15, while still a win, has to be seen as at least concerning.

The GA-6 race, as pointed out, has had tons of money pouring into it and its a jungle primary, with a clearly backed Democrat in Osseff vs a dozen Republicans and a handful of unbacked Democrat hopefuls. This makes sniping the seat with a 50+1 vote all that much more likely. If Osseff fails to reach that, however, he is likely to lose in the 1-on-1 runoff vs whomever the Republican opponent would be, but it would probably be close.

My view as well.  It will all boil down to turnout.  The GOP is running their "angry white folks" commercials to no end.

Ugh, tell me about it. I actually wonder how effective they are. I can see them playing well in East Cobb, but North DeKalb, while conservative, is pretty racially diverse and North Fulton is relatively progressive for an affluent southern community.

I noticed that too. I would wager the difference is that he was reading directly from the script and didn't memorize it.

The last thing you want to expose scared old white folks to is an angry man of color. Obama never raised his voice above conversation level and you remember how uppity and thugged out he was supposed to be.

Well he did run a winning presidential campaign- I think that gives him marginally more credibility when speaking about political matters than can be given to the average celebrity. Don't get me wrong- I don't begrudge any celebrity the right to express a political opinion. We all have and should use the right to do this. What baffles me is why celebs think their talent in entertainment or sports , no matter how great, equates to political influence and expertise.  If I vote for a candidate simply because (insert your favorite celebrity here) likes them, then maybe I shouldn't be voting in the first place.

big time THIS. the worst is the one from yet another conservative group (no the Congressional Leadership one, another one - I'll put on any Atlanta station - they'll run be running another add any second now) that has all white people from Roswell and other NOTP. The one woman sounds like she came straight out of New Jersey - they really couldn't find an angry white woman from Milton to rant about how Ossoff is the next incarnation of the devil?

I know he was trying to be all serious but damn, that was boring as hell and forgettable. I would have gone full SLJ and made it something everyone was talking about. At least that way people would be talking about the election or at least remember the ad. People thought Jesse Ventura's ads were crazyballs when he ran for governor of Minnesota but they were memorable, funny and actually got a message across.

I, for one, would like to hear the uncensored version of this ad.  Because you KNOW he did one.  There's no way he couldn't get through a one minute ad without uttering 'motherfarker' at least once.
