Jungle Primary

Solution

All eyes are on a political Tarzan of the Georgia jungle Tuesday. A nonpartisan blanket primary election in which all candidates for the same elected office, regardless of respective political affiliation run against each other at once, instead of being segregated by political party.

3o-year-old Jon Ossoff is a Democrat who has never served in an elected position. He running for Congress in a decidedly conservative district. But thanks to his online pitch to voters — “Make Trump Furious” — he has improbably found himself awash in donations: roughly $3 million, his campaign says, while 11 Republican candidates are scrapping for attention.
