How 6th District Residents Feel About The Runoff Election

Apr 20, 2017

The congressional election in Georgia's 6th Congressional District has garnered international attention over the last few months. But after the election last night ended with a call for a runoff election, some 6th District residents have mixed feelings about the campaigning that will inevitably continue for the next two months.

Maureen Coleman lives in Milton, towards the northern part of the 6th District. She says she's not looking forward to the next two months. 

"I think it's time we just say there's an election and there should be no more of these poster boards everywhere I look," Coleman said.

Coleman's friend, Alice Jameison lives in Dunwoody. Her beef is with the campaign ads.

"If they're positive, great. But all this negativity ... it's sad, really sad," Jamieson said. 

Alpharetta resident Craig Brisco said he won't be worried about the campaign ads until the election gets closer.

"I think it'll be a minor reprieve and then, you know, the last 30 days — it'll be a much more concise 'Get out the vote' effort from both parties," Brisco said.

Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel will meet in the runoff June 20.
