In the Georgia state election, the republican Karen Handel wins the contest. The republicans are proud as peacocks saying the election is a referendum on President Trump and Americans are happy with his performance so far. The democrats shrink back to their corner disappointed in the loss. The liberals and progressives had hoped that a democrat win would set up the mid-term elections in their favor but instead the republicans receive bragging rights.
