consultants are sandburs

CBC carries AP June 20, 2017, feed, "Republican Handel wins Georgia congressional election, thanks Trump. [subhead] Battle over Georgia's 6th Congressional District was most expensive House race in U.S. history"

This link; this quote:

Republicans immediately crowed over winning a seat that Democrats spent $30 million trying to flip. "Democrats from coast to coast threw everything they had at this race, and Karen would not be defeated," House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement.

If Bevis had any comment, none was reported. Is Tom Perez awake? He's not being quoted. One more quote:

Republican seat since 1979

Handel is the latest in a line of Republicans who have represented the district since 1979, beginning with Newt Gingrich, who would become House speaker. Most recently, Tom Price resigned in February to join Trump's administration. The president himself struggled here, though, edging Democrat Hillary Clinton but falling short of a majority among an affluent, well-educated electorate [...]

Deep south, hence, unrepresentative of a nation at large. Well-educated and low Trump margin is a juxtaposition, make of it what you will.

WWJS? What Would Jarad Say? (Publicly or to a Russian banker, either.)
