Richard Barke, associate professor in the Ivan Allen College School of Public Policy, was quoted in “Dems Look for Trump Rebuke in Georgia Special Election” by The Hill.

Excerpt:

It’s more likely that Ossoff, 30, will fall short of the 50 percent threshold, meaning that he’ll face a Republican candidate in a June runoff to determine a winner. That’s the scenario the GOP is hoping for, as Republicans think they can defeat the Democrat in a head-to-head race that would allow them to coalesce behind a single nominee.

“This race is seen as a referendum on two things: One, on how well the Trump presidency is doing and if there are any Republicans upset enough to want to send a message. And two, a referendum on whether the Democratic Party can actually flip some districts,” said Richard Barke, a political science professor at Georgia Tech who lives in the district.

“It looks like it’s in play, but the question will be all about who turns out.”
