If Jon Ossoff wins tonight, it will be because women woke up and said "no more." Since January, Ossoff's candidacy has been boosted by white suburban women who were shattered by Trump's win.

Over in South Carolina, a lower profile race has been underway for Mick Mulvaney's old seat. Archie Parnell has been an outstanding candidate, but the demographics might not be in his favor there.

No matter what happens with tonight's results, the energy we're seeing in these really, truly tough districts is great. I'm just hoping we can sustain it through November 2018.
