Skip to comments.The Hill's Campaign Report: Is Georgia reaching a tipping point?
Posted on 07/10/2020 2:54:04 PM PDT by yesthatjallen
Democrats hopes of capturing statewide office in Georgia may have been dashed in 2018, but this year the party appears on the cusp of a breakthrough.
The states two Republican senators are facing increasingly competitive reelection bids, and President Trumps poll numbers are suffering there as he scrambles to get a handle on the coronavirus pandemic and respond to ongoing civil unrest over racial injustice and police brutality.
Democrats, meanwhile, say that changing demographics in Georgia have made the state ripe for political change. Some 322,000 new voters joined the states rolls last year, including many young voters and people of color. And Georgias June 9 primaries saw record-setting Democratic turnout, drawing nearly twice as many voters as the 2018 gubernatorial nominating contest between Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans.
Georgia is the linchpin, the most competitive state, the top battleground, Jon Ossoff, whos running to unseat Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), said in an interview with The Hill on Thursday.
Georgia has seen some of the highest-profile, most competitive races of the past decade," he continued. "Each of those battles built mighty infrastructure, trained tens of thousands of volunteers, moved the needle, and now Georgia is the most competitive state in the country.
Ossoff, who first garnered national attention in 2017 during his unsuccessful bid for a suburban Atlanta House seat, last month beat out a crowded field of Democrats for the nomination to take on Perdue, a business executive and first-term senator.

Democrats are working to change the Demographics of Georgia to their advantage. They're actively working to take the state. Ignore their plans at your peril.
And look who's back. Jon Ossoff. Does he have a chance? I don't know but he's trying again. And Democrats keep trying until they get what they want.
If you don't believe it can happen in George take a look at the rapid change in Virginia.
one solution is to take back the schools because Texas and Georgia and South Carolina and so many other states have now two generations of white college kids who thinks Marxism is awesome. If it doesn’t change soon within another generation Dems will win those States
It sure helps the Dems when cats that have been dead for 12 years get a ballot
Cats always vote democrat. with them, everything is always about “Me, Me, Me Me-ow”
The two Dem Senate challengers hit me as weak tea. I don’t think we are at the tipping point yet. But, it looks tome like we will be there sometime in the not so distant future. We need a whole different strategy!
Liberals need to experience their death camps before they can appreciate freedom. That’s all I can say on that.
Why does author leave out party affiliation for the 322,000 new voters?
The Hill of trash bot keeps on trucking along.
Why would I be angry over an obvious Dem propaganda piece?
Trump will win Georgia. And by a bigger margin than 2016. And you can take it to the bank.
As for what's his name. .Osoff is it? Perdue will take him to the cleaners in November.
I think we’d better change their name to “The Shill” cause that’s what they do. Shill for the Dimwit Party 24/7.
My husband & I moved to Georgia in 2013. We purposely chose our county because it was one of the most conservative counties (bright red) in the country. It also has excellent schools & is within commutable distance of Atlanta. When companies relocated to Atlanta due to Georgia’s friendly business environment, they moved their executives here - and those executives (or their spouses) chose to move to my county due to the excellent schools. Now, they are a strident voice on all my county’s social media sites and they’ve got a formidable ground game. I expect we’re going to flip either this year or in following election cycle. Demographics are the future, and our success is also our doom.
How many of those were Democrats? And how many were Republicans?
And Georgias June 9 primaries saw record-setting Democratic turnout,
Trump received over 500,000 more votes in the Georgia primaries than Obama did in 2012. We are talking about 4 times as many votes as Obama.
It's Trump who is setting the records for primary votes for an incumbent.
As long as there is no enforcement and illegal aliens remain they will be voting.
Every state is at risk.
John Easley is a Hard Core DNC operative planted at the Pill .
This fraud was at Yahoo Leftist Sprew .
No bigger fraud in the DNC propaganda biz .
Agree. Demography is destiny. This is exactly how VA was transformed. I watched it happen firsthand.
When you see John Easley reporting ..
Its a DNC fax .
There is no party registration in GA
"We're gonna get ya! WE'RE GONNA GET YA!!!"
I am so tired of DECADES of this Mitt.
And Hillary was going to win the state by 8 points...
Listened to Hannity a bit today and he had on the two pollsters he usually speaks with.
These are guys who said just a few weeks ago the President was letting things slip away from him. Today they said they sense a change in the race and all the leftism, rioting and “defund the police” we see is helping the President in a big way. They were pointed about what’s happening in Atlanta as favoring the President and Biden losing it. My point?? I should trickle down the ticket.
Totally anecdotal but I heard two late night talk radio show callers say "They're relocating bunches of illegals to southern states like mine. They get across the Texas border and why should they be shipped to my state by some social workers? I know they're doing that deliberately to affect the voter trends in the South."
