Teresa Tomlinson likes to tell people, “I’ve won hard-fought elections.” Georgia’s 2020 Senate race is shaping up to be one of those. She’s made a strong case that she’s the candidate to beat Sen. David Perdue, and last weekend, she came out fighting, with an All Points Bulletin that warned of bad consequences for Democrats if Jon Ossoff is the nominee instead of her.
Ossoff supporters may think this is an unwarranted attack. But it’s better to think of it as Tough Love from Team Tomlinson to Team Blue.
Anyway, it’s not like she hasn’t said it before. Now she’s simply pointing out to everyone that Republicans want Ossoff to be the Democratic nominee. As the Cook Political Report points out, “Many Republicans relish and are practically salivating, at the chance to take on, and hopefully take down, Ossoff again.”
Why the Pavlovian response from the GOP? The answer is simple: Ossoff looks like dinner.
