Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Jon Ossoff suggested that there will be gridlock in Washington if he does not become a senator.
“If we don’t win these Senate races, it’ll be gridlock in Washington for at least four years,” Ossoff said in an interview posted on Twitter by The Hill on Tuesday.

What’s comical about Ossoff’s comment is that gridlock is what many conservatives and moderates want, especially in Georgia, where many may be concerned about a progressive agenda under a Biden administration.
