Atlanta, GA – Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter issued the following statement on Jon Ossoff’s victory and what’s next for Georgia Democrats in the 6th Congressional District.
“Congratulations to Jon Ossoff for an awe-inspiring victory. Jon ignored the hype and rhetoric, and focused on the best interests and promise of the 6th. He proved that you can run a substantive, issues-based campaign and not only come out on top, but bottle lightening to unite both first-time and longtime grassroots activists around shared values. Thank you to every single volunteer who knocked on doors, made calls, stuffed envelops and so much more to get us this far. Now it’s time to buckle down, push forward, and flip the sixth.”
