FINALLY, 6th District Voters Head To The Polls

Jun 19, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” the hotly-contested 6th District race is almost upon us! Voters (who haven’t already early voted!) go to the polls tomorrow to make the choice between Karen Handel and Jon Ossoff. If you enjoy reading the political fine print as much as we do, you might want to check out this page from Politico.

Money, money, money: this race, with a total estimated price tag of $50 million dollars, is the most expensive Congressional race the country has ever seen. But money isn't the most jaw-dropping aspect of this campaign thanks to an incendiary new commercial that’s raising hackles on both sides of the aisle. The spot, paid for with PAC money, refers to the "unhinged left" and ties the Scalise shooting to the Democratic Party. Both campaigns have denounced the messaging in the ad.

Despite all the attention on tomorrow's election, we can't ignore the constant flow of news coming out of the Trump White House. Is Trump under investigation by Robert Mueller or not? Statements and tweets conflict.
