Republican Wins Special Election In Solidly Republican District – But It Took a Major Effort
With 99 percent of ballots counted, Estes led Democrat James Thompson, a lawyer making his first bid for office, by 8 points. Last year, Pompeo won reelection by 31 points in a race Democrats did not seriously contest.
Next up is a special election in a district outside
Atlanta that is also
solidly Republican. The Democratic
candidate will probably force a runoff election in June and then lose. But as America learns what they are doing, the Republicans
look like the best thing to happen to Democratic party prospects in years.
