I haven’t paid much attention to today’s special election in Georgia’s 6th district, because I don’t live there and it’s none of my business. But a lot of other people who don’t live there, including Hollywood celebrities and Chelsea Handler, have been making a big deal about it. They want everybody to know that Democrat Jon Ossoff is running for Congress and that they support him. A vote for Ossoff is a vote against Trump, apparently. That’s why much of his support, if not most of it, is coming from out of state.
If the guy who plays the Incredible Hulk says it’s important, it must be important:
We need everyone tomorrow! It's down to wire guys. Razors edge. Must get out an vote. https://t.co/SAyKbHUKUb

But if you don’t live in that district and can’t vote for Ossoff, don’t feel bad. Neither can Ossoff! Here he is on CNN this morning, explaining why he doesn’t live in the district he wants to represent:
Sounds good to me. Carpetbaggers need love too.
Best of luck today, Mr. Ossoff. Your constituents are rooting for you, thousands of miles to the west.
