Missed it by that much

Democrats had high hopes in Tuesday's special election in Georgia.
They thought they had a candidate who could get over 50 percent in the crowded field.
They would show the world the anti-Trump tide was on the rise.
Didn't happen.
Their candidate won the most votes, but not 50 percent.
About the same percentage Hillary Clinton got in the district last fall.
So there's a runoff, where Republicans can get together behind the second-place finisher.
There was plenty of talk how a Democratic win would weaken President Trump.
Does he emerge stronger after tweeting about the race in the past few days?
