The race for Georgia’s 6th district is at a fever pitch now. After a long special election campaign, tomorrow is finally election day. Will voters flip the 6th district and send Democrat Jon Ossoff to Congress? Polls are tight and every single vote will count. As the race comes down to the wire, Republicans are hitting a new, nearly unthinkable low. They are using the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise and three others at a Virginia baseball field to try and sway voters. And they aren’t shy about it, here is Brad Carver, GOP chairman in Georgia’s 11th congressional district, talking to the Washington Post:
“I’ll tell you what: I think the shooting is going to win this election for us,” Carver said Saturday after a get-out-the-vote rally for Handel in Chamblee. “Because moderates and independents in this district are tired of left-wing extremism.”
They even went so far as to use footage of Congressman Scalise being taken off the baseball field in a stretcher, featured in an ad called “Stop The Violent Left.” See the utterly repulsive ad below:
