» Carpe Diem, In Focus » The gloves come off: Karen Handel...
On Thursday, GOP front runner Karen Handel released her first ad, immediately going for the throat of the top Democrat candidate.
In a new spot entitled “Lightweight Liberal,” the former Secretary of State calls Ossoff “Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked candidate.” The jab refers to a DCCC fundraiser held for Ossoff held on Thursday.
“Liberals from California to New York are flooding our airwaves and mailboxes in a pathetic attempt to replace a great public servant, the Hon. Tom Price, with a Democrat aide that doesn’t even live in the 6th Congressional District,” Handel said in a statement. “As a long time resident of the district, I’ll work hard to ensure that our representation isn’t auctioned off to Nancy Pelosi and Hollywood big wigs who think they know better.”
…She also went after Ossoff’s past position as a “national security” staffer for Hank Johnson.
“My record of delivering results and getting things done will stand in stark contrast to my opponent’s record of producing propaganda for Al Jazeera and advising his employer on the potential dangers of Guam tipping over in the Pacific.”
Handel’s campaign noted that the ad would receive a “significant digital buy.”
A February zpolitics / Clout Research poll showed that Ossoff currently leads the field ahead of the April 18 special election, with Handel placing second in the crowded race.
