“We must unify behind Jon today and invest in his campaign like our lives depend on it.” —Rep. Stacey Abrams, Georgia Democratic House Leader
“Ossoff is the sort of progressive champion—strong on both racial justice and economic justice—who can channel that resistance energy into progressive volunteers and votes…” Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action
Aggressive progressives are obsessively busing in volunteers from Michigan, Washington D.C., Maryland, New York, North Carolina and elsewhere in an effort to force a victory in Georgia’s sixth district special election for Jon Ossoff, a former intern for both Representatives John Lewis and Hank Johnson.
Jon Ossoff’s entire campaign seems to be about making President Trump angry. In fact, “his first serious email fundraising pitch” was titled “Make Trump Furious.” Just to prove his “resist Trump” creds, Jon Ossoff attended the Fourth District Day of Resistance shortly after Donald Trump won the election, an event sponsored by U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson “to rail against the incoming Trump administration and the GOP’s Congressional agenda.”
