    There was a time when Kevin Van Ausdal had not yet been called a “loser” and “a disgrace” and hustled out of Georgia. He had not yet punched a wall, or been labeled a “communist,” or a person “who’d probably cry like a baby if you put a gun in his face.” He did not yet know who was going to be the Republican nominee for Congress in his conservative district in northwestern Georgia: the well-known local neurosurgeon, or the woman he knew vaguely as a person who had openly promoted conspiracies including something about a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles.

    Democratic Georgia Senate candidate Jon Ossoff announced Saturday that his campaign raised $1 million after Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., appeared to mock the name of democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris at a rally Friday. "Kamala? Or Kamala? Kamal-mala-mala. I don't know. Whatever," Perdue repeated as he changed the intonation of her name at President Trump's rally in Macon, Ga. Perdue's campaign brushed off the mispronunciation as an accident.

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads President Trump by 7 points in Georgia, according to a new poll. The latest Quinnipiac University survey finds Biden's support at 51 percent and Trump's at 44 percent, with 4 percent of respondents undecided. Biden led by only 3 points in the same poll in September, before the first presidential debate and Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis. Biden is now viewed favorably by 51 percent of Georgians, compared to 46 percent who view him negatively. Trump is underwater at 43 positive and 54 negative. Trump will campaign in Georgia, which last went for the Democratic nominee...

    OHIO: PRESIDENTIAL RACE The race for the White House in Ohio remains essentially tied, as likely voters support Biden 48 percent and Trump 47 percent. Four percent are undecided. This is identical to the last Ohio survey released on September 24th. Likely voters have a mixed opinion of Biden with 48 percent having a favorable view and 47 percent having an unfavorable one. In September, they gave him a mixed 45 percent favorable and 49 percent unfavorable rating. Likely voters give Trump a slightly negative 46 - 51 percent favorability rating, which is virtually unchanged from a negative 45 -...
  • Feel of this election

    Vanity ^ | 10/13/20 | Vanity
    So, not sure where else to put this. I'm having a difficult time getting a "feel" for this election. By all counts, my gut is telling me that Trump should win in a landslide, based on the enthusiasm I see at Trump rallies, and the lack of the same at Biden "rallies". I totally discount the polling showing Biden ahead 15 points or whatever ridiculous number is coming out this week. Trump signs in my area are plentiful -- Biden signs, fewer than I saw for Hillary. But I remain concerned as to whether this is just the area I...

    Rep. Doug Collins on Monday introduced a resolution to push for the removal of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claiming she “does not have the mental fitness” to lead the House of Representatives. “Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to abide by the Constitution, combined with her recent actions, call into question her own mental fitness, which is why it’s critical that the House of Representatives demand her removal from the line of succession,” Collins said in a statement to Fox News. A draft of Collins’ resolution, obtained by Fox News, argues that Pelosi “is unable to adequately serve as Speaker of the...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 11, 2020 09:55 AM | Naomi Lim, Political Reporter
    MARIETTA, Georgia — Democrats aren't turned off by Republican incumbent Sen. David Perdue pegging challenger Jon Ossoff as a "radical" and a "socialist." In fact, that's what some Democrats like about him. Perdue, a first-term senator and former business executive, is at risk of losing his seat to the documentary filmmaker less than a month before their Nov. 3 general election. And if neither one of them secures a majority of the vote then, their fight will continue until a Jan. 5 runoff. If Ossoff's name sounds familiar, it's because he previously lost the high-profile 2017 special election for Georgia's...

    The number of jobs lost due to the coronavirus shutdown continue to mount, with the latest weekly total of Americans applying for unemployment benefits coming in at 840,000. While some states have seen unemployment applications recede from record highs after the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. employment picture, others have suffered stubbornly high job losses months into the recovery. In some states, unemployment rates have shot higher than 20%. According to the Department of Labor’s latest report, which breaks out the insured unemployment rate (a ratio of people on unemployment benefits divided by labor force) through September 19, Hawaii is...

    GAINESVILLE, Ga. - Terence Dewayne Dixon has been sentenced for running an online chat group that he named “House of 1000 Littles.” The chat group was dedicated to sharing child pornography and discussing child molestation. At the time, Dixon had already been convicted in 2001 of the aggravated sexual assault of a nine-year-old child.“Dixon disseminated horrific images of child pornography to members of his online chat group,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak. “He also encouraged others to share child pornography that fueled a demand for the violent exploitation of children.  This lengthy prison sentence serves as some...

    An atheist group has filed a brief in support of a lawsuit against a Georgia college that punished a Christian student for preaching outside of a limited free speech zone on campus. The American Humanist Association filed an amicus brief on Tuesday in the case of Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski, which will be argued before the United States Supreme Court. The Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative law firm, filed suit against George Gwinnett College for its treatment of Christian student Chike Uzuegbunam. Although the school has changed their policy on free speech and expression since stopping Uzuegbunam from preaching, they have...

    After the death of George Floyd, anti-police sentiment seems to have reached a fever pitch among Democrats. Activists and candidates called for the defunding of police, antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters tried to burn down buildings with law enforcement inside, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi referred to federal officers as “stormtroopers.” Yet one Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Georgia was ahead of the curve. Raphael Warnock, the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, preached sermons condemning police as far back as 2015. In those sermons, he said the police act like gangsters, thugs, and bullies. He insisted that...

In a statement, Kevin Van Ausdal attributed his decision to withdraw from the race to “family and personal reasons,” but did not elaborate on what had prompted him to end his campaign.
