GEORGIA: Democrat Lucy McBath Flips US House Seat

Atlanta’s NBC affiliate reports:

Karen Handel has conceded the Georgia’s 6th Congressional District race to Lucy McBath Thursday morning.

In a letter to Channel 2 Action News, Handel said, “After carefully reviewing all of the election results data, it is clear that I came up a bit short on Tuesday. Congratulations to Representative-Elect Lucy McBath and send her only good thoughts and much prayer for the journey that lies ahead for her.”

The 6th District matchup drew far less national attention than the last time the district was in play, when Handel, Georgia’s former Secretary of State and a former Fulton County Commission chair, fended off a star-studded challenge from political newcomer Jon Ossoff.
