Handel’s future Congressional colleagues, including U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk, also congratulated her on Twitter.
Conservatives on Twitter lauded Handel’s victory as a sign that voters were still supportive of Trump after a tumultuous first six months of the new administration.
Others mocked the record-shattering fundraising totals Ossoff brought in from across the country. Republicans frequently criticized Ossoff’s fundraising , which took 95 percent of its money from outside of Georgia.
Even Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway got in on the jokes.
Meanwhile, Democrats were congratulating Ossoff on a hard fought race in a district that was once uncompetitive for Democratic candidates.
Others took Ossoff’s loss as a sign that Democrats needed to reevaluate their campaign strategies.
But everyone can agree on one thing: We’re glad not to have to see another political ad on TV for at least a few months.
Republican Karen Handel took more than 52 percent of the vote in one of the most hotly-contested House races in history.
