It was supposed to be an easy win for Republicans.
But the more than four month-long bitter special election fight in Georgia’s 6th congressional district has been anything but simple. Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel are locked in a razor-tight contest that’s obliterated spending records, with tens of millions pouring into the critical contest in the northern Atlanta suburbs that’s taken on major national implications.
Democrats in Georgia and around the country are hoping a victory on Tuesday by Ossoff, a 30-year-old documentary filmmaker and former congressional aide, would send a message to President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress.
Physically, she’s doing very well. Emotionally, I think, it’s got be bit a little bit tough to recover, but she’s working on it. It took 39,000 feet to think you might be going down, is a scary place to be. [I talked to Jen] the minute she landed, she was very shaken and thankful to be alive. And we are very thankful to the pilots who did an amazing job getting the plane on one engine.

fairy tales has gotten in trouble with the law more than once for taking images
in abandoned locations. Karen Jerzyk travels all across America to create the

If you’re reading this it means I actually worked up the courage to mail it, so good for me. You don’t know me very well but if you get me started I have a tendency to go on and on about how hard the writing is for me. But this, this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write.
There’s no easy way to say this so I’ll just say it, I met someone. It was an accident, I wasn’t looking for it, it wasn’t on the make, it was a perfect storm. She said one thing, I said another, next thing I knew, I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the middle of that conversation. Now there’s this feeling in my gut she might be the one. She’s completely nuts in a way that makes me smile, highly neurotic with a great deal of maintenance required, she is you, Karen. That’s the good news.
The bad is I don’t know how to be with you right now. And that scares the shit out of me. Because if I’m not with you right now, I have this feeling that we’ll get lost out there. It’s a big, bad world full of twists and turns. And people have a way of blinking and missing the moment. The moment that could have changed everything. I don’t know what’s going on with us, and I can’t tell you why you should waste the leap of faith on the likes of me, but damn you smell good. Like home. And you make excellent coffee. That’s got to count for something right?
