We were lured in by an early statistic: Hillary only lost Atlanta’s 6th district by 1.5%. That’s noticeably different than in the previous 4 presidential races, where Republicans held the district by a 30-50% spread. When Tom Price’s seat opened up, Dems asked themselves: CAN WE FLIP THE 6th? Being a pragmatist, I questioned: does Atlanta really need me? Why care about a tiny house race in the south?
