1% of Ossoff donations would fully fund Sally Harrell’s campaign

Exciting news in Georgia: Georgia Democrats snatched three legislative seats y from Republicans. “The results are a rejection of Trump – it’s clear as day,” said state Rep. Scott Holcomb, D-Atlanta. “Republicans who continue to embrace him can start the countdown on their political careers.” However, if we’re going to kick out entrenched GOP incumbents–if we’re actually going to Flip Georgia’s Sixth Senate District–we need to support  strong local  candidates running campaigns within that district like Sally Harrell in Georgia’s 40th Senate District and Jen Jordan  in the Georgia 6th Senate District runoff December 5.
