He's never attempted to conceal any of these facts. This is the kind of thing that people pull when they lack other, more legitimate lines of attack. Members of Congress have lived outside of their exact districts at various times for various lengths of time REGULARLY. It's like, get a real issue guys.

    Otherwise, both parties are extensively relying on national money for this race.
    No one said he was trying to conceal the information, however he offered "if" he wins he'll move back into the area when his GF finishes her training.

    Or they can vote for someone who does live in the 6th district to represent them.

    Again, get a better issue. Carpetbagging is moving into a district or state you don't know to go for a seat that just happens to be open. He was born and raised in this district, and has always known suburban Atlanta in general as his home. He currently lives very near the district's borders.

    No way is this any referendum on President Trump, that is just crazy Prog and MSM talk.

    Jon Ossoff, who cannot even vote for himself, versus a passel of Republicans. The possibility that Ossoff can win 50% is sending the MSM, and blogs, into orbit. No one gets 50% there will be a runoff June 20th.

    Massive amounts of outside money have flowed to Ossoff, $8.9 million, who, as I said, can't even vote for himself. And in a Q & A today sounded like a total phony. Pajama boy II.

    The MSM has the anti-Trump stories written, they had them for Kansas' 4th, and are waiting eagerly to use them.

    You selected this issue from my post, which was a short sentence. The rest dealt with monies raised for him, more from 3 states and not the state in which he is running - Georgia.

    And I addressed that point also --- The GOP has dumped almost as much outside money on the race. More than $4 million. It makes no difference that some of it is being divided up among its passel of candidates while most is just party-sponsored ads and GOTV. None at all. The only reason Ossoff's campaign has a concentration of outside money is because he's the viable Democrat, while the GOP must be fair to each of its candidates. The GOP as a matter of fact have concentrated national dollars within the party apparatus for a while --- the lion's share of presidential money went through their books.

    Seems to me that $8.9 million to Ossoff is a whole lot more than $4 million spread among a number of Republicans.

    $4 million (and counting) from the party + $2 mil Dan Moody + ~1.5 mil between Gray, Hill and Handel.

    $7.5 million vs. $8.9 million, not accounting for any super PAC activity or other efforts, isn't a huge gulf. If both sides are spending equivalently (and Ossoff is apparently holding a lot in reserve for the runoff + snap re-election effort if he wins) it just drives up ad prices.

    It's interesting most of his money is coming from outside Georgia. It seems the biggest insult you can say about someone wanting to represent us in Washington is that the candidate represents Washington, not us. That’s the charge being leveled by Republicans at 6th district frontrunner Jon Ossoff.

    For example, here’s what Karen Handel said at Wednesday’s debate, “Let’s be realistic, $4 million was not raised in $10, $20, $30 increments. It is being bankrolled by Nancy Pelosi and the liberal left.”

    Just 6 percent of Ossoff’s donors live in Georgia. He had more donations from California, New York, and Massachusetts than from Georgia. Compare that to Tom Price. How many of his donors lived in Georgia? 76 percent. %
    i thought you had to have residence in the district you are running in.

    prediction.

    democrats will loose this election!

    2nd try, 2nd lose.

    You failed to mention how much of the Republican 4 million was from outside the district, I guess that is different, different, different....just like the massive money sent to Wichita from the Republican Party to help its candidate in that bright red district

    The right in their usual mode of trying to portray the Republicans as everything right and wonderful in this world and the Democrats as the evil villains of the story, you guys never get tired of it, do you?
