“So Jon, I guess what I would like to know is who are you going to vote for in this election?” Karen Handel asked, and the rest was history.
Democrat Jon Ossoff, who is running in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District special election, got called out hard by his Republican challenger Karen Handel for not living in the district he is running to represent during Tuesday night’s debate.
At the end of Tuesday night’s debate, both candidates were allowed to ask each other one question and Karen Handel was ready.
“So Jon, I guess what I would like to know is who exactly are you going to vote for in this election?” Handel asked.
Ossoff paused for several seconds, seeming to try and gather his thoughts.
It has been well-documented that Ossoff lives outside Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District he is running to represent.
Ossoff dodged the question, instead electing to attack Handel for being born in Washington D.C., and claiming that his residency isn’t an issue to the voters.
“Actually, it is of concern to the people of the Sixth District that you don’t live in our community,” Handel responded. “While I was born in Washington D.C., I didn’t get to pick where I was born, but the fact is I’ve been in Georgia for almost as long as you’ve been alive.”
Handel’s response to Ossoff was reminiscent of President Ronald Reagan’s takedown of Walter Mondale.
