No let up: A new volley of attack ads aims for Ossoff in Georgia 6th

More than $14 million worth of ads have already flooded Georgia’s 6th District. And with a June 20 runoff looming, outside groups are readying another volley.

The Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC with ties to Paul Ryan, was quick out the gates with a digital spot that depicts Ossoff as a creation of Nancy Pelosi. It’s one of a string of advertisements linking Ossoff to the House Democratic leader, who polls abysmally in the conservative-leaning north Atlanta district.

The timing of the ad is a reminder that voters will hardly have a respite after the Tuesday special election. Ossoff fell just short of the majority-vote he sought, but declared a “victory for the ages” after performing about as well as Donald Trump in the district.

He faces Republican Karen Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, in a head-to-head matchup in June that will test his campaign in new ways. She’ll be backed by the CLF, which has already spent nearly $3 million on attack ads and field organizers to bog down Ossoff’s numbers.

1. Karen Handel is an easy target

I hope the attack ads on her are vicious and paid for by pacs. Being too nice makes folks think you are weak and it's time to fight. Jon Ossoff has no direct relationship to Nancy Pelosi. Karen Handel has lots of baggage.
