6th Congressional District of Georgia Special Election to replace new HHS Secretary Tom Price. Interview with candidate (R) Dr. Mohammad Ali Bhuiyan
The American Health Care Plan to repeal and replace Obama Care should be done at one time. Senator Ted Cruz, in an interview on Face the Nation, discussing the three buckets of the Health Care Plan: 1) Pass the American Health Care Plan 2) Administrative 3) Legislative. Cruz said, the notion that you can’t pass everything at one time is fundamentally false. Cruz calls the Legislative bucket, the third bucket for suckers. Mitch McConnell thinks he can use Obama Care in one more election to get 60 Senate Republican votes.
If you thought that 17 Republican candidates made for an interesting race in the 2016 presidential election, then you’re most likely looking forward to the latest updates on the special election for the US Congressional Representative of Georgia’s Sixth District, which takes place on April 18th. There are officially 18 candidates qualified to succeed Tom Price for the seat of the Sixth District.
Price recently resigned ensuing his nomination by President Donald Trump as the US Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). After all Democrats from the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee boycotted the election of Price, the vote was then taken to the Senate Floor where Price won in a 52-47 vote.
Similar to the election of Price for the HHS, the special election for the Sixth District will be contentious, highly influential and debated among many. The 18 candidates running to succeed Price, include; 11 Republicans, 5 Democrats and 2 independents.

GA 6th Congressional District special election. Out of eighteen candidates, five registered as Democrat. Why has the DNC chosen to support Jon Ossoff? Why pick Ossoff over the other four candidates?

Will (R) Karen Handel embrace or distance herself from President Donald Trump? Will Trump voters come out and vote for Karen Handel? How hard will Dan Moody, Judson Hill, and Bob Gray work to convince their voters to vote for Karen Handel? If Fulton County is the Republican stronghold of the district then why did Ossoff get 41,269 votes? Ossoff received almost as many votes in Fulton County as Gray, Handel and Moody combined. Donald Trump is President of the United States because he did not used the “Republican Playbook.” By using the playbook the Republicans almost lost the 6th district. When will Republicans learn to throw the playbook out the window – Trump style?
A runoff seems to be certain in the GA 6th Congressionaldistrict special election to replace HHS Secretary Tom Price, taking place today. Democrat Jon Ossoff looks to be guaranteed one of the runoff spots; the second spot will be left open to Republican Dan Moody, Karen Handel, or Bob Gray. If you are tired of all of the commercials and think they will end tonight… Think again. There will be just as many commercials but now it will be narrowed down to just two candidates. So get ready ready for another two months of political campaign ads, because election day is June 20th.
If Ossoff wins at least 40 % of the vote tonight there is a good chance that he will be able to win the election in June to become the new Congressman of the GA 6th. A runoff election is generally won by the opponent that can get their voters back to the polls. Just like most sports; the team that has the momentum wins. It is going to be questionable as to whether the Republicans can coalesce and change the momentum of the game.
If Democrats just take the voter role from tonight, with the amount of money they have coming in nation wide; they will be able to do anything necessary to get the voters back to the polls on June 20th. If the top Republican is only in the area of 20% of the vote tonight they have the challenge of getting that 20% back to the polls in addition to the margin needed to win from the Republicans they ran against. If Karen Handel is the front runner can you really see Bob Gray, Judson Hill, Dan Moody and the rest of the Republicans out begging their voters to return to the polls. BKP sees them half heartedly endorsing her, but not aggressively working for her campaign.
Ossoff has many media outlets to thank for their media coverage, not to mention this morning’s MSNBC’s 15 minute Ossoff infomercial. Morning Joe and Mika Brzezinski spent about 15 minutes talking about President Donald Trump’s poor polling numbers. BKP strongly believes the poor polling report was to lead the voters of the 6th district to believe the country is turning on President Donald Trump. They continued by telling their audience that in less than 100 days of his presidency the American people have tuned him out. That gave Mika a perfect segway into, “Up next: A special election that could spell trouble for the GOP.”
MSNBC’s Political Correspondent, Casey Hunt, proceeded with what we consider a Jon Ossoff infomercial. Hunt dedicated only about 15 seconds of her report to Republicans Bob Gray and Karen Handel. Hunt was even able to find, in her non-biased reporting, a Republican in the district that voted for Jon Ossoff. Republicans go into every election already behind one strike knowing the media is against them.
In today’s segment BKP reminds people of the late Andrew Breitbart’s comments concerning Congressman John Lewis – “The orchestrated lie.” President Donald Trump had the nerve to call John Lewis a liar. Republicans never want to offend anybody, want to play the middle of the road, and know how to lose an election. BKP is concerned that Republicans attacking Ossoff’s youth and fondness for Star Wars, may have been non-beneficial. Did Republicans miss how Star Wars is to all age groups? Maybe Republicans don’t remember a college keg party? REALLY… Democrats are organized. If they win the 6th district, the next stop is winning The House, and the grand finale will be redistricting in 2021. A must watch segment. Republicans beware… This may be offensive… Because it’s the truth!
The Georgia Sixth District Congressional Forum, hosted Sunday, March 12th in Roswell,GA by ‘Needles in a Haystack,’ had over 500 attendees. The democratic voters and candidates hope to ‘flip the sixth,’ by changing the historically, congressionally Republican led district to a Democratic district.
According to a straw poll taken at the forum, Jon Ossoff is the most supported candidate by a landslide. Yet, the other candidates; Ragin Edwards, Ron Slotin, Rebecca Quigg and Richard Keatley made clear they are still in the race.
Not only does Ossoff have the expressed support from the Sixth District according to the straw poll; but according to Ossoff, his campaign has raised over three million dollars in only seven weeks. Further, he is covered more than any other Democratic candidate by national media; including the New York Times, Esquire and Heavy.
While other candidates at the forum expressed the need for unification among the Sixth District Democrats, Ossoff stated he believes the effort to flip the sixth district has unified the Democrats already. Evidently, Ossoff is not on the same page as the other candidates.
Slotin has extensive political experience. He has served two terms in the State Senate, was involved in the passing of the HOPE Scholarship, has volunteered for various organizations in the sixth district for over fifteen years and more.
Slotin stated, “I have the best chance to beat the Republicans in the runoff in this election.” Slotin then threw a curveball when he asked the audience, “I want to know if anyone is here from the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) or the National Democratic Party? Because I want to ask them, why are they getting involved in this election?” Slotin said “You don’t see the RNC (Republican National Committee) getting involved with Republican Candidates” Slotin brings up interesting points.
Further, Slotin attacked Ossoff at the forum for not yet filing his federal campaign finance reports. Slotin stated, “Jon did not turn in his financial statements.” Ossoff replied by stating that the deadline for finances is not until April 18th.

Meanwhile, Keatley encouraged voters to stay open-minded to all candidates by stating, “Suspend your judgement, there are many forums coming up.” He also stated, “The people in this district should decide who wins this election,” and finally, “It’s about communicating with people and having a face that they know is not bullshitting them.”
Tom Price’s recent confirmation to be Secretary of Health and Human Services has left his Congressional seat open with an election scheduled to fill it on April 18th.
The election will take place on April 18th and if no one gets 50% of the vote +1, there will be a run off election in June. There are 18 candidates that have qualified for the election, 11 Republicans, 5 Democrats, and 2 Independents. This district went to Donald Trump by 1.5%.
Sunday, March 12th 2017 “Needles in a Haystack” hosted a democrat forum with focus on 5 democrat candidates in the race: Ragin Edwards, Richard Keatley, Ron Slotin, Rebecca Quigg, & Jon Ossoff. The forum was held in Roswell, Georgia with approximately 500 in attendance. FYNTV.com televised the event live and will have one on one interviews published soon. See video below:

The failed American Health Care Act just changed the entire GA 6th Congressional District race. Karen Handel releases a very good campaign video going after John Ossoff but can Republicans promise to stop Nancy Pelosi’s agenda? And that they are the party that can deliver? Although Handel’s campaign video may have the right message, it may be the wrong time. #BKP explains how the failed bill may be a gift to Ossoff and leaves Republican candidates scrambling to decide which side of the Republican party they are on. Three strikes and the Republican party could lose the House.
Who is Responsible for Obama Care Now – Republicans or Democrats? How will the failed Health Care Bill affect the elections in 2018? How will the failed Health Care Bill Act will affect the GA 6th Congressional District election? When Obama Care collapses who will the voters hold responsible #BKP thinks that the Republicans now own Obama care, lock stock, and barrel, and 2018 voters will hold Republicans responsible for the collapse. Republicans broke the biggest promise that they made to the American people. They can no longer go back to the well and say they are the party that can deliver.
We’ve been saying for months the the strategy from the Trump/Bannon team would be to take down establishment Republicans. As you’re all well aware, the Democrats have several vulnerable candidates. But, what good does it do to replace them with establishment Republicans? Let’s look at the case of Joe Manchin.
People in West Virginia love Joe Manchin, the last popular Democrat governor. Yet, things have changed there, and our sources tell us that Republicans have even tried to flip Joe Manchin to the Republican side. Yet, he refuses to do so because he is a lifelong Democrat.
BKP can relate, his grandparents in West Virginia were hardcore Democrats. They never had nice things to say about Republicans and when his Dad became a Republican it didn’t go over well. Eventually though, his Grandmother left the Dems. When asked why she switched, she said “because my kids became Republicans.” But, she was scared to admit it to people. This is a microcosm of how the Manchin family has DEEP, DEEP Democrat roots in West Virginia for multiple generations.
Remember these quotes?
“If you want to open a coal plant you can but we will bankrupt it” -Barrack Obama
“We want to put coal companies out of business!” – Hillary Clinton
Well that helps to explain the losses Democrats have suffered in places like West Virginia. And, although the media and Democrats are doing their best to slowly pick off the Trump cabinet, it isn’t going to work. It won’t work because Trump is playing chess while they’re playing checkers. Trump is sticking to his agenda.
Just look at Scott Pruitt, who is rolling back the EPA rules from the Obama Era. The Left and Liberals are beside themselves claiming it pushes the Federal Government further away from combating Global Warming. Trump is doing what he can himself to keep his campaign promises. However, when it comes to Congress his “pen is dry.” Anything that requires action from Congress cannot get done because the Republicans in Congress have failed. So why should we choose a Democrat turned Republican like Evan Jenkins?
Don’t panic: It’s not like the voters are going to suddenly vote in Democrats. Everyone who tries to run on “not voting for tax cuts, better insurance, etc. because Trump sent a tweet and it made me mad,” will lose badly. Just like we said before, Bannon left just in time to run Primary Opponents against every Republican (save Ted Cruz). Bannon and Trump know that it is going to take a long time before they can truly “drain the swamp.”
