Garance Franke-Ruta, the Senior Politics Editor at “Yahoo News,” has a story about Georgia’s 6th Congressional District special election Tuesday to fill Rep. Tom Price’s seat. Her report has a banner in it called “RESISTANCE REPORT.” Making no claim at objective news reporting. It is the media, Yahoo included, that is the driving force for the Democrat Party. The days of the media carrying the water for the party have past. That was the case when the party was strong, and had a message that resonated with Americans. Absent that, the media has taken the ball. Now, the party follows them.
Her takeaway #2 is worth commenting on. Garance Franke-Ruta says . . .
Karen Handel is more vulnerable than she might seem, even with Trump now in her corner. Her inability to consolidate the GOP vote — she won 19.1 percent of the total field, against 10 other Republicans — despite being well known in the Sixth District suggests enthusiasm for her candidacy is not terrific.
Another way to look at the field of eleven candidates, like we saw in the last presidential primary, is that the GOP has a big bench. There are a lot of people who want to be involved, who care about the country. And for that, she blames the candidate, Karen Handel, for her “inability to consolidate the GOP .” With that analysis, I suppose you could say that Jon Ossoff consolidated the Democrat Party so much that there was no candidate in Price’s district to run.
