Trump’s Ultra Liberal Opponent in Georgia has some Very Deep Pockets

John Ossoff is making waves around the world. He’s a surprise liberal underdog who’s about to rise to prominence in a traditionally Conservative suburb of Atlanta and upset the special election being held there…

Representative is this summary from The Guardian:

A progressive rebellion is brewing in Georgia. The special election to replace Donald Trump’s health secretary, Tom Price, should have been a shoo-in for Republicans. Instead, Paul Lewis discovers Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old film-maker, is dominating the sixth district race as anti-Trump sentiment fuels his unlikely bid for Congress

Somehow, a practical no-name until now, he has raised $8.3 million in campaign donations for his campaign to put him in Congress as a Representative from Georgia. They’ve come from mostly out-of-state donors.

Even though he’s from Georgia, he has all the qualifications that any liberal leader should have. He volunteered for the campaign of a Georgia Democrat while in college at Georgetown.

But he also has a sizeable set of assets for a 30-year-old:

A financial disclosure shows Ossoff has more than $1.7 million in assets, including more than $250,000 in Apple stock and an additional $50,000 in Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway investment firm. His England-based documentary company, Insight TWI, is valued at more than $250,000. He also has a stake of at least $50,000 in NWC Partnership, a solar panel installation firm.


Ossoff isn’t the first Washington politician to attend Georgetown…
