WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

AJC’s Kyle Wingfield Says Ossoff’s “Act” Looks “Pretty Gimpy” Next To Handel’s Experience.  “The first debate between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel was Tuesday night, and it’s pretty clear there are two reasons Ossoff didn’t want to be in a debate that would have been sponsored by the Atlanta Press Club and nationally televised on CNN. The first is that he surely didn’t want too many of his supporters back in California, Massachusetts and New York to see him playing budget-and-defense-hawk. But the second, and more important, is that none of his act makes up for the fact his promises to work across the aisle and be fiscally responsible look pretty gimpy next to Handel’s list of things she’s actually done on both counts.” (AJC6/7/2017)

Ossoff “Probably Wasn’t Happy With The Debate’s Disproportionate Focus On National And International Issues.”“Ossoff probably wasn’t happy with the debate’s disproportionate focus on national and international issues. He declined to participate in the Atlanta Press Club debate for this very reason, but found himself in a debate that could have easily been aired by CNN. He didn’t help himself by bringing up Iran when given the opportunity to distance himself from a position held by President Obama.” (AJC6/7/2017)

AJC Says “Handel Was Powerful When Discussing The Pre-Existing Medical Condition Of Her Sister.” (AJC6/7/2017)

Mark Rountree Says Handel Won The Debate. “Ultimately, Karen Handel won because she connected on an emotional level, particularly when talking about her sister and her positions on Iran, while Mr. Ossoff did not really connect emotionally with voters on anything.” (AJC6/7/2017)

Handel Said Ossoff Was A “Tool Of Nancy Pelosi.” “Republican Karen Handel insisted repeatedly during a debate Tuesday that Jon Ossoff, her opponent in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, is a tool of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and “the most liberal elements of the Democratic Party.” Handel mentioned the California Democrat about a dozen times in less than an hour as she and Ossoff met two weeks ahead of a June 20 special election in metro Atlanta’s typically conservative northern suburbs.” (AP6/7/2017)
